‘Reacher’ Trailer: Alan Ritchson Gives Fans a More Accurate Jack Reacher

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.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on Child’s first Jack Reacher novel Killing Floor, the series introduces Reacher after he just recently entered civilian life. He is a drifter, carrying no phone and the barest of essentials as he travels the country and explores the nation he once served. When Reacher arrives in the small town of Margrave, GA, he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years. The cops immediately arrest him and eyewitnesses claim to place Reacher at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Reacher’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with.

All 8 episodes of Reacher‘s first season will begin streaming on February 4, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video.
