Reacher is, of course, being played by Tom Cruise in the movie, a piece of casting that, not for the first time in the actor’s career, hasn’t gone down brilliantly in all quarters. Whether Cruise can bring Reacher to life on the screen convincingly remains to be seen, but we’ve got that first proper trailer to feast our eyes on.
