Tom Cruise returns to clear someone else’s good name in the first teaser for the counterintuitively-named sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Because all Jack does in this series of clips from the film, which his co-star Cobie Smulders shared on Entertainment Tonight, is go back: back to the military police, back to jail, back to punching guys out. But it looks like the sequel will include plenty of stuff for Smulders, who plays Susan Turner, to do as well. There’s some sprinting, knifing, and, most importantly, uncovering a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top.
Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Defiance) took over for Christopher McQuarrie as director, which must have caused some separation anxiety for Cruise and his Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation director. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back hits theaters October 21, just in time to make Jack Reacher costumes, i.e., distressed leather jackets, popular for Halloween again.
