New TV teasers for Jack Reacher

Cruise demonstrates Childs' play

Jack Reacher hits cinemas on Boxing Day and, as these new TV trailers show, Tom Cruise means business as author Lee Child's taciturn tough guy.

Much like the titular hero, the first teaser lets action speak louder than words in a gung-ho demonstration of popcorn-flick pyrotechnics and Cruise's much-vaunted driving skills (as seen on Top Gear).

But while Reacher doesn't talk much, people usually listen when he does. Proving that this is a thriller with a sense of fun, the second TV spot shows we're dealing with a hero who's as cool as a turkey on Boxing Day.

We're looking forward to the rest of the trimmings.
