Here is a poster for the latest Tom Cruise movie “Jack Reacher”
(courtesy of IMDB)
Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
MY THOUGHTS ON THE POSTER:
1. His face looks done.
Boy Tom Cruise either has found the Fountain Of Youth, has a great makeup artist, or the artist working on this photo really did a number to make him look ten years younger.
My bet is all three.
2. I like that it is basic.
The poster is of Tom Cruise and the name of the movie.
I like that.
Some movies today have fifteen characters in the poster and I have no idea which one will be in the actual movie.
This one is going to be about Tom Cruise, he is going to be the star, I know that from the poster.
They are clearly relying on the name of Tome Cruise to sell this film.
3. What does Never Go Back even mean?
I don’t know what that line means.
Sounds like something bad is going to happen to Tommy Boy and he is going to have to make it right.
Also that they will make a sequel if this does well.
There is no number in the film so they can name the third whatever they want (when they get to it) so that the stigma of making a sequel is gone.
WORTH GOING BASED ON THE POSTER:
I’d say I’d give it a shot. They seem to be giving me a straight shot with this one. Here is Tom Cruise. Here is an action movie, unless he plans on using that gun in a juggling act. I will go to see this because there may not be much else out. Not that this movie is going to be great.
