Reacher Trailer Brings a Bigger, Better, Badass Jack to Amazon

Alan Ritchson will take on the role of Jack Reacher in the Amazon Prime series,and the first trailer has promised fans a faithful adaptation.

As well as going all in with their fantasy offerings of Lord of The Rings and The Wheel of Time, Amazon Prime Video has bolstered their tough guy action catalogue with the release of the new trailer for their TV adaptation of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels. Having successfully brought Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to screens for three seasons, with a fourth already on the way, the platform will now also be home to Reacher, and this time the hulk of an investigator will be much closer in appearance to the book than Tom Cruise was in the 2012 big screen movie version with Titans star Alan Ritchson in the lead.

The new Jack Reacher series kicks off with an eight part first season that will adapt Child’s first Reacher novel Killing Floor, which introduced the ex-military police investigator soon after he returns to civilian life. The story sees Reacher travelling the country with no phone, no home and very few possessions. When he arrives in a small town and finds himself accused of the first murder to take place there for over two decades, he will need all his wits and physical attributes to prove his innocence. Check out the trailer below:


When Tom Cruise appeared in 2012’s Jack Reacher and its 2016 sequel, fans of the numerous novels featuring the character were quick to point out that while Cruise was the big name the studio had wanted to lead the movie he was a long way short of the 6-foot-5, 240 pound man-mountain described in the books…literally. When it came to Amazon’s TV interpretation of the character, Lee Child insisted that the character should this time be more in line with the physical description that he gave Reacher, and it looks like someone paid attention. There is no doubt that Ritchson fits the bill, and as has been seen previously in his work can hold his own in the action stakes, making the new series an intriguing draw even for those unfamiliar with the character.

For anyone in doubt, the official poster for the Amazon Prime series manages very easily to show the muscle-bound giant that most people have envisioned over the years with Ritchson’s frame almost too big to be contained by a simple frame.

The filming on Reacher took place in a few months earlier this year, wrapping at the end of July, with much of the casting announcements being made just prior to start of filming, although Alan Ritchson was cast in the title role back in September 2020. Other cast members include Malcolm Goodwin as Chief Detective Oscar Finlay, Willa Fitzgerald as Roscoe Conklin, Chris Webster as KJ Kliner, Bruce McGill as Mayor Grover Teale, Maria Sten as Frances Neagley, Hugh Thompson as Sergeant Baker, and was rounded out with Kristin Kreuk as Charlene “Charlie” Hubble, Marc Bendavid as Paul Hubble, Willie C. Carpenter as Mosley the Barber, Currie Graham as Mr. Kliner, Harvey Guillén as Jasper the Medical Examiner and Maxwell Jenkins as Young Jack Reacher.

Reacher will arrive on Amazon Prime Video exclusively on February 4th, 2022 when all episodes will drop simultaneously.
