The full trailer for the Tom Cruise vehicle Jack Reacher has surfaced online ahead of its Christmas release.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie and based on the wildly popular Lee Child novels, Cruise stars as the titular character, a former military policeman and homicide investigator digging around a case involving a military sniper.

Clearly aimed at kick-starting a franchise, Jack Reacher also stars the likes of Robert Duvall, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins and, most intriguingly, Werner Herzog.

With Cruise having restablished his box office clout with the hugely enjoyable and immensely successful Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, this looks as though it could be another entertaining romp.

And with lines like ‘He doesn’t care about the law, he doesn’t care about proof – he only cares about what’s right’ and a trailer that pushes most of the right buttons, we are looking forward to this one.

The flick hits UK cinemas on Boxing Day.
