Tom Cruise returns as Jack Reacher in the first trailer for NEVER GO BACK

Paramount has released on the first trailer for NEVER GO BACK, the second film featuring Tom Cruise as Lee Child‘s Jack Reacher. NGB is based on the 18th novel in the Jack Reacher series. Joining him this time around is Cobie Smulders (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, THE L WORD) as Major Turner.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follows the title character as he returns to Virginia to meet the head of his former unit. But she’s missing, he’s being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth – and maybe even a family.

NEVER GO BACK hits theaters on October 21st.
