A January 14, 2013 article entitled "Tom Cruise's 'Jack Reacher (2012)' Unlikely to Get Sequel" published in show-business trade paper 'The Hollywood Reporter' stated: "The film [Jack Reacher (2012)] has grossed [US] $153 million to date and will have to do strong business in Japan, China and Korea if it is to spawn a new franchise for Paramount . . . Paramount is facing a dilemma on whether to embark on a sequel to Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher (2012), and sources tell The Hollywood Reporter [THR] that the film must do exceptional business in key Asian territories where it has yet to open in order to justify another installment in the wannabe franchise . . . But sources close to the studio tell THR the movie needs to gross $250 million worldwide for Paramount to consider moving forward with another installment - a challenging goal." See more »
As Turner, Reacher and Samantha are deplaning, you can see that almost all of the other passengers have already left the aircraft. However, only a couple of the overhead bins are ajar, and none are fully open. This would not be the configuration of the overheads at this point, they would mostly all be open. See more »

Never Go Back is more like 'Never Go in the First Place'
It's just so so so bad. Cliché, No action and dreadful production.
I had heard about how bad this movie was from a friend, but since me and some other guys were stranded in a shopping mall with nothing to do for 3 hours, I decided to just let go and enjoy an action blockbuster for once. I was so wrong. It's an atrocious piece of filmmaking, which has literally EVERY cliché in it, from the stroppy teenager to the Afghanistan reference to 'These people were under my command!!!!!!!' to the person in the control room shouting 'I want eyes on every asset they've got / I want to know everywhere he's slept in the last four years, I want to know how he takes his eggs, what his favourite flavour of ice cream is...'. This is why we need to stop Tom Cruise from producing his own movies, because he can't carry a whole movie on his own. The directing is atrocious and the script is disgusting. Tom Cruise is okay, but everyone else might as well have been picked straight from the street. There is literally NO ACTION UNTIL THE LAST SCENE. Anyone who says this movie is 'Action Packed' is lying. Just don't watch it: these people don't deserve any more money after putting such sh*t in my face.
