It would be interesting to speak to the producers of the Jack Reacher films, including Tom Cruise, just to ask them why they seem dead-set against doing the books in chronological order. Not every single book in the series by Lee Child follows the one directly before it. He’s played with time a bit, jumping back to fill in some details about the character. However, for the most part, there is continuity in the series, and by making the movies in what feels like random order saps some of the fun of the way Child told the story. The first film in the series, Jack Reacher, was adapted from One Shot, the ninth book in the series. In the fourteenth book in the series, Reacher begins an over-the-phone relationship with Major Susan Turner, and he began to work his way across the country to meet her. It was book eighteen, »

Just last week, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media debuted the trailer for their new sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The first look footage arrived as an exclusive for Entertainment Tonight, and had several key scenes missing. Now, the studio has finally premiered the full-length uncut trailer, which brings Tom Cruise back in all of his action-packed glory!
Jack Reacher 2 follows an Army major named Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who took over as a Military Police commander after Jack Reacher walked away from the armed forces. After Susan is accused of espionage, Jack springs back into action to help her, while dealing with his own personal issues. All hell breaks loose as Jack and Susan team-up. Soon, they are on the run, and stay that way for the duration of this action drama. The story is based on author Lee Child's 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, »
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” will see a band of rebel spies facing off against the man in black himself, Darth Vader. The Sith lord’s involvement in the new film has been rumored for some time, but official confirmation comes courtesy of the new Entertainment Weekly cover (pictured below) released Wednesday. “Rogue One,” set before the events of the original “Star Wars” film, follows a ragtag band of outlaws who hatch a plan to steal the plans to the Death Star.

Ack Reacher: Never Go Back starring Tom Cruise is in theaters October 21, 2016
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, a sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher, is based on author Lee Child’s 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, Never Go Back. The film is written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, The Equalizer”), Marshall Herskovitz (Love And Other Drugs, The Last Samurai) & Zwick.
Tom Cruise is producing alongside Don Granger (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jack Reacher), Skydance Media’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Eostorm), and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Valkyrie). The executive producers are Paula Wagner (War Of The Worlds, »

Jack Reacher is many things. A trained killer, a lone wolf, a one-man army; all attributes channeled through Tom Cruise in Christopher McQuarrie’s 2012 adaptation of Lee Child’s pulse-pounding novel series.
Four years later and though McQuarrie currently has his hands full with Paramount’s Mission: Impossible series – replaced at the helm by Edward Zwick – Cruise is primed to reprise his role as Child’s restless former major with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Pegged to arrive in October, the sequel has been pitched as a relatively self-contained experience – not unlike Child’s novels – welcoming How I Met Your Mother star Cobie Smulders into the fray as a disgraced commanding officer. Turning to Cruise’s agent in a time of need, it’s now up to Jack Reacher to shed his lone wolf status and ultimately buddy up with his newfound partner in crime.
Adapted from the 2013 novel of the same name, »

The original Jack Reacher was an absolute gem of an action movie, and really showed how bad ass Tom Cruise can be when he really puts his mind to it. The sequel is coming our way in a few short months, with The Last Samurai’s Edward Zwick replacing original director Christopher McQuarrie, and the first trailer finally comes our way, showing us it’s business as usual for Lee Child’s literary hero. I seriously love Cruise in this role, kicking ass and not holding back with razor sharp quips. Fans of the book series will of course have their issues with the movies, but there’s no denying that with the glut of cheesy, throwaway action movies in recent years, it’s refreshing to have something that hits hard but still knows how to have fun like Jack Reacher. Released: October 21st »

Tom Cruise returns as best-selling author Lee Child‘s one-man vigilante in an action-packed trailer for “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” released on Wednesday.

In the first “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” teaser, Tom Cruise returns as the former Army officer/badass one-man wrecking crew. This time around, Reacher has to help out his old friend Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) after she is wrongfully accused of espionage. The two are forced to go on the run together when powerful forces decide it is too risky to let Turner live. Ed Zwick directed the film from a script by Richard Wenk that Zwick recently rewrote with longtime collaborator Marshall Herskovitz.

Entertainment Tonight has offered up our first peek at action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back in motion, teeing up the action duo of Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Tom Cruise. Fast forward to the 0:40 mark to see Smudlers and Cruise kicking ass and taking names.
On board to reprise his role as the infamous Jack Reacher, Cruise’s not-so-tall agent clearly hasn’t lost his edge in the intervening years since Christopher McQuarrie’s sleeper hit arrived, here seen upending a standard arrest in a remote diner and sending two seemingly corrupt police officers behind bars.
Pitched as a relatively self-contained action movie, Never Go Back takes inspiration from Lee Child’s 2013 novel of the same name, following Cruise’s war hero as he journeys “back to his old military base in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested, and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy and fathering a child with a woman.”
That commanding officer is Cobie Smulders, who turns to her own ally in a time of need. Robert Catrini, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Austin Hebert are also set to star in Paramount’s high-octane sequel.

While it didn’t reach his outings as Ethan Hunt, the $200 million-plus gross of Jack Reacher was enough for Paramount to green light a sequel. As Christopher McQuarrie has now been put on Mission: Impossible duty (and doing a mighty fine job to boot), director Edward Zwick has now stepped in to make the sequel, titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, and today the first trailer has landed.
This time around the adventure, based on Lee Child‘s 18th book, finds our lead and Cobie Smulders‘ new character on the run. While this trailer debut is unfortunately butchered by Entertainment Tonight’s noxious voice-over and interruptions, one can see the first glimpse at the action. Also starring Austin Hebert, Patrick Heusinger, Aldis Hodge, Holt McCallany and Robert Knepper, check out the trailer below and we’ll update it when the official version arrives.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opens on October 21st.

Long before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story entered development in earnest, it was almost a forgone conclusion that Gareth Edwards’ militaristic offshoot, while fresh and intriguing on paper, would always been seen as something of a creative risk, particularly as it’s emerging from the huge shadow cast by The Force Awakens and its record-breaking success.
But few could have predicted the hullabaloo that began to snowball once Disney officially ordered reshoots of Edwards’ Anthology flick after reportedly expressing concern with the initial cut. With upwards of 40 percent of scenes set to be overhauled and a new director being brought in to oversee the changes in Tony Gilroy, Rogue One has been a hub of activity over the past fortnight for better or worse.

Ever since we added the latest twist in the ongoing conversation about the current set of extensive reshoots taking place for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, people have been dying to get some sort of official word on the matter. We've been reaching out to people, and are doing our best to follow up on the report from earlier this week from our trusted source. For now, though, we've got fresh comments from one of the film's stars: Mads Mikkelsen.
The actor was recently asked about what's going on over on the Rogue One sets these days, and he did his best to say quell fan concerns, while making it pretty clear that he's not really in a position to declare how extensive they are.
"Basically, all the big films I have done always have reshoots, it is part of their budget. They’re either not super happy with a scene bit, »

Based on the ninth in a series of books by Lee Child, Jack Reacher provided Tom Cruise with an opportunity to play a different sort of hero. The titular character served for years as a U.S. Army Military Police Corps officer before leaving the service and becoming, essentially, a drifter who seeks to help victimized people find justice. In Child's novels, Reacher wanders the country, free from any responsibilities toward family or friends, living off his savings and whatever temporary jobs come his way, and that was reflected in the first movie as well. Christopher McQuarrie wrote and directed; he had written for Cruise before on Valkyrie, and they teamed again for Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Jack Reacher earned $80 million at the U.S. box office, which...

While some people are still bemoaning the fact that Tom Cruise is playing Lee Child’s hulking creation Jack Reacher (despite the fact that the movie was really, really, really good), Cruise is going back to the well for another stab at the character with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, continuing the trend started with the original and just picking a random book in the series to adapt (in this case, Never Go Back is the 18th Jack Reacher novel). People have our first look at the movie, which sees The Last Samurai’s Edward Zwick taking the reins from original director Christopher McQuarrie, featuring a glimpse at it’s New Orleans setting and Cruise newest co-star, Cobie Smulders. Also starring Rober Knepper, Danika Yarosh, Patrick Heusinger, Aldis Hodge, Holt McCallany, and Robert Catrini, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back comes our way on October 21st. »

Garnering some strong critical supporters and a cult audience who appreciated its lean, dogged and old-fashioned approach, Christopher McQuarrie's first "Jack Reacher" film in 2012 was enough of a success that a sequel was greenlit.
Ed Zwick takes over as director on "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back," the new adaptation of the Lee Child novel which hits in October. Today, People have finally offered our first official look at the film with the first two official stills showing off Tom Cruise and Cobie Smulders in the New Orleans setting.
Zwick says the film will further delve into the Reacher character and assures fans that we'll get to see plenty of Cruise doing his own stunts: "It's a pretty boring job to be Tom's stunt double, He did all of his own stunts. It's almost a hallmark of what he does. He does every bit of it himself."

Oh boy, here we go again. Ever since it was revealed that Disney was ordering reshoots for Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the internet has been going wild. Rumors and speculation have run rampant, with all kinds of reports coming out that seemingly contradicted one another in every imaginable way.
First we heard that the reshoots were just to include a special cameo, and then we were told that the studio wasn’t happy with the tone of the film and ordered that 40% of it be reshot. It was further reported that writer/director Christopher McQuarrie was being called in to help out, but the filmmaker later shot down those rumors. EW also attempted to throw water over the fire by reassuring everyone that nothing was wrong and that these reshoots were planned from the start. »

Once the media started reporting reshoots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you can practically hear thousands of fans screaming on the Internet.
Don’t push the eject button yet.
Disney is going into spin control mode to calm the nerves of Star Wars fans and media alike.
So this is what we know:
Fact: There will be reshoots. The reshoots were always planned since the beginning of production to allow certain tweaks if necessary. Even Star Wars: The Force Awakens had some reshoots. And that film broke records at the box office.
Fact: According to Entertainment Weekly’s source, the reshoots involve dialogue scenes—not any combat scenes. The changes are with “clarity and character development.”
Fact: The new timeline is to lock the picture sometime around mid-August and score the movie in September. In comparison to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that picture locked in October after its reshoots. »

Since it was revealed during the week that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be undergoing reshoots, there’s been a tonne of rumours and speculation surrounding December’s first Star Wars Anthology movie: Disney execs are extremely unhappy with the first cut, Christopher McQuarrie has been brought in to replace Gareth Edwards (which McQuarrie strongly denied on Twitter), and around 40% of the movie is being reshot.
Well, Entertainment Weekly has been in touch with its Bothan spies at Lucasfilm to find out the truth behind the reshoots, revealing that they are set to get underway at the end of this month and will finish in August. Their source dismisses talk that almost half of the movie is being reworked, stating that: “If we were rewriting the movie and reshooting 40 percent of movie, we would not be finishing in August. People really would be panicking – and changing the release date. »

One of the biggest stories of this week was the news that "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" was set to shortly undergo reshoots following a studio screening of the film.
Those reports indicated that execs had issues with the darker tone and wanted something lighter and more "four quadrant friendly". As a result the additional filming, which is par for the course with most blockbusters these days, is set to be more extensive than usual. How extensive and what they entail is where all the rumors are running rampant right now.
Yesterday's report at Making Star Wars got people talking as it made some bold claims - that the reshoots will take eight weeks and involve up to 40% of the film being redone. Added to that Christopher McQuarrie would be working extensively with director Gareth Edwards onset to make sure they're on the "same page".
McQuarrie himself quickly shot »
