Tom Cruise is back in action as Jack Reacher, with his own particular brand of justice, in the highly anticipated sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The star of the Mission: Impossible franchise launched another action movie series in 2012, with the first Jack Reacher movie based on Lee Child’s recurring character, who has been at the centre of over 100 million books sold worldwide.
South African audiences can get to see him first – and in the most immersive cinema experience. Ster-Kinekor has announced that it has secured an exclusive pre-screenings of the all-out action drama, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back in its seven IMAX cinemas across the country, for two shows only – 17:00 and 20:00 – on Wednesday, 19 October. Seeing it on these big screens promises maximum action, maximum images and maximum sound!
In Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, it is four years on. Jack Reacher returns to the headquarters of his old military unit where he served as a Major in the United States Army Military Police Corps. Instead of a salute, he’s shrouded in suspicion after being accused of a 16-year-old homicide, opening old wounds.
Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) is the Army Major who heads Reacher’s old investigative unit. She is arrested for treason and knowing that she is innocent, Reacher must break her out of prison and uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear their names and save their lives. On the run as fugitives from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Starring Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher together with Cobie Smulders and Robert Knepper, the film is directed by Edward Zwick and produced by Christopher McQuarrie.
