Forget Kick Ass, Jack Reacher is bad ass and author Lee Child tells us more about him in a brand new featurette which just dropped ahead of the film's release on December 26th.

Tom Cruise plays an ex-Army Police Major who gets himself caught up in the middle of an investigation. Five innocent bystanders are shot dead by an expert sniper and just when the local police believe they’ve caught the bad guy, Reacher arrives in town to see whether or not they’ve got the right man. That’s when things start to get really complicated. Translation, EXCITING.

Based on Child’s phenomenally popular series (this one in particular is based on One Shot, book 9 of 17), with a screenplay by the writer of The Usual Suspects, the film's got a killer cast including Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Werner Herzog. We're super psyched for this one!
