‘Jack Reacher’ Teaser Trailer: Tom Cruise Will Actually Break Your Face (and Your Arm, and Your Leg)

While we may always wonder what a Jack Reacher film would look like with a star who actually fits the description of the character from Lee Child‘s popular book series (you know, “a giant, standing at 6? 5? tall with a 50-inch chest, and weighing between 210 and 250 pounds…Reacher is strong enough to break a man’s neck with one hand and kill a villain with a single punch to the head or chest”), star Tom Cruise seems pretty determined to get down to the neck-cracking, despite his smaller frame.

In the film’s first teaser trailer, Cruise’s Reacher breaks approximately one bone every twenty seconds (you know, other people’s bones – it doesn’t look like Reacher can even bleed), and no matter how disgusting the necessary sound effects are, it’s a riveting little bit of marketing. See just how much Jack Reacher doesn’t care about the law (and does care about cracking skulls), after the break.
