1st trailer for "Reacher"



Premieres February 4, 2022

Can we get a thread title update?

Looks pretty cool and Ritchson looks jacked and I guess this is the Jack Reacher everyone expected.

That was everyone's buff with Tom Cruise. Everyone said he was supposed to be taller and beefier... Well Ritchson certainly fits that bill, damn he is jacked. lol

Looks fun and I'm down.

That looks like a fun ride. Adding that to my calendar.

Definitely has a different tone than the films.

I was a little skeptical when they cast Ritchson as Reacher, but this looks great. Reacher in the books is not only a physical specimen, but he's really smart too. They seem to really be following the first book for the first season. It's a good book, but the second book is even better.

Forgot all about this. Looking forward to it. Agree with the prior post on Reacher having both the strength and smarts to outwit whoever he's up against. Curious to see how it plays out.

In Titans he played an idiot as Hawk. Gonna take some adjustment for me to see him as someone with the smarts to outwit...

Same---definitely in. Since I'd read most of the books, Cruise in the movies was just a horrible choice, and this looks way better.

This is out on Friday (Thursday evening). I'm glad to see they will be dropping all 8 at once.

This is up.

Ritchson is just a hulking mass of bad ass. The fights are great.

He was one of the best part of Titans.

I saw an interview with Ritchson and he said he gained 30 pounds of pure muscle while training for this part.

1st episode was awesome. That prison bathroom fight scene and Reacher gouging that guys eyes out. Ritchson is a fucking monster. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Looking forward to watching this. At least this version of Reacher isn't 5'7".

I wrapped this up. I liked it a lot. Ritchson is really great in the role. I hope this lasts a while.

They never let you forget how big he is in this. People are always making comments about his size.

And he is frequently next to Malcolm Goodwin, who has to be about 5'7", so the disparity is even more noticeable.

Yeah they clearly hired shorter actors and are using camera tricks to make him appear even bigger. I think that is a reaction to all the complaints about the size with Cruise's version so they want to emphasize it.

Ritchson is a big dude but even he is smaller than the book Reacher by a few inches.

Is 6' 5" really that freakishly big? I'm that height and rarely does anyone comment on my size. I'm also not a muscle-bound goon so there's that to consider. My highest upvoted comment on Reddit was in a Jack Reacher discussion when I called out the gimmick where he strolls into town with nothing but a toothbrush and buys his clothes off the rack. At that height the only pants you can buy in a store are going to be floods. In that regard Tom Cruise made more sense since he could just shop in the kids section at Walmart.

Just finished ep 2. Loving it so far! Richson is great and the woman playing the deputy is good, too. And, hey, there's Kristen Kreuk!

Yea… I liked Willa Fitzgerald a lot in this. I haven’t seen her since the MTV Scream series.
