The first official trailer has dropped for the next Tom Cruise film, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Cruise is back as the titular ass-kicker, who is this time using his fists to get to the bottom of who is framing an old military buddy (Cobie Smulders).

You know what you’re getting here, and it looks on point. Cruise is doing his thing, putting in another highly physical, oh-so cool turn as a man you don’t want to mess with, while the action, which includes another slick-looking car chase, looks to bring the goods. Yep, we’re in.

Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie, who went on to direct Cruise in the well-received Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, isn’t back for the sequel. At the helm this time is Edward Zwick, who’s more than adept at handling dramatic action, having directed features such as The Last Samurai and Blood Diamond. Cruise and McQuarrie will be teaming up for a third time with the sixth film in the Mission: Impossible franchise.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, also starring Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge, Holt McCallany and Patrick Heusinger, will be hitting U.S. cinemas on October 21.
