The latter half of Tom Cruise’s career has been hit or miss, so when the first Jack Reacher came out, it was a pleasant surprise that he was still able to do action movies outside of the Mission Impossible franchise.
Especially after the terror that was Knight and Day.
And then when he followed that up with Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow, it seemed like the Tom Cruise we knew from the good old days of Days of Thunder and Top Gun was finally back to form.
Which is why we’re not disappointed at all that he decided to dip back into the honeypot that was Jack Reacher for a sequel, and if the trailer’s any hint at what’s to come, it looks like he’ll be pulled back out from his quiet life and back into the fray to save those he once served with.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back will release in theaters nationwide October 21, 2016.
