On Decembeer 21st, Tom Cruise will be returning to the big screen as Jack Reacher directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

This is the first time I can remember Cruise taking on an Anti-Hero type role. He’s been the bad guy before, but I don’t think he’s ever been a character like this. Feedback from the internet is that about 50% of the people are buying it. I’m not saying I’m totally sold, but I’m willing to give him a shot before I call it crap. Also, it’s worth it just to see him battle the evil Werner Herzog!

Jack Reacher opens December 21st.

Official synopsis for Jack Reacher:

When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
