The latest clip from Jack Reacher has been released showing Tom Cruise in the titular role.

Cruise plays the character created by New York Times bestselling author Lee Child in a series of novels. Reacher is an ex-military investigator who can more than handle himself in a tricky situation as the clip demonstrates.

When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: "Get Jack Reacher!"

The film is set to be released in Irish cinemas on St. Stephen’s Day, December 26th and also stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo and Robert Duvall.
