'Jack Reacher' Trailer: Tom Cruise Basically the Most Awesome Guy with the Best Car

Perfectly timed to make it look like Tom Cruise used his divorce and 50th birthday as a desperate, sadly-typical excuse to buy that muscle car he's always had his eye on, here's the trailer for Jack Reacher. In the film, Cruise plays a hard-ass ex-army cop, and in this trailer, some boastful monologues, excessive torso shots (this guy has scars and muscles, because he's so tough!), a five-on-Cruise fight, a woman in lingerie (presumably one of Cruise's many sexy encounters), and some conspicuously low-angles will attempt to convince you the soon-to-be divorcé is not woefully miscast in the role. The trailer, like all who have a cool old car they fixed up, also makes a real point of showing off its ride. Just kind of chuckle and nod as they keep roaring the engine and it will be over before you know it.

Welllll, "nothing to lose" except custody.
