Prime Video has released an official trailer for Reacher. The upcoming series is a new adaptation of the long-running crime thriller book series from author Lee Child.
With Alan Ritchson stepping into Jack Reacher’s big shoes, let’s take a look and see if he’s going to give us a more faithful portrayal of the character.
This is my most anticipated TV release of 2022. The 2012 film, simply titled Jack Reacher, brought Child’s books to my attention. They are excellent reads and while I think Tom Cruise did a pretty great job as Reacher in the 2012 and 2016 films, I’m excited to see a more faithful adaptation of the character.
Ritchson certainly looks the part, but so far the trailer is making him seem too likeable. He’s definitely more attractive than the books make Reacher out to seem.
Either way, just when I think I could cancel my subscription to Prime Video, Amazon has to go and remind me that it’ll be the home of Jack Reacher for (hopefully) years to come. Well played, Bezos. Well played indeed.
In addition to Ritchson, Reacher also stars Malcolm Goodwin, Willa Fitzgerald, Chris Webster, Hugh Thompson, Maria Sten, Harvey Guillén, Kristin Kreuk, Currie Graham, Marc Bendavid, Willie C. Carpenter, Maxwell Jenkins, and Bruce McGill.
All 8 episodes of Reacher‘s first season will begin streaming on February 4, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video.
