Divorce from Katie Holmes notwithstanding, it's actually been a pretty good week for Tom Cruise, with Forbes magazine announcing that he is the highest paid actor of the year, with earnings of a reported $75 million, and now the news that the trailer for his forthcoming film has been revealed. Cruise is back with Paramount, whom he's enjoyed a hugely successful partnership with in the past, for 'Jack Reacher', an adaptation of a novel by Lee Child.
Fox reports that the divorce has brought fresh scrutiny on Cruise's scientology beliefs, and it was that same faith that caused his split with Paramount back in 2006 after erratic comments over the religion and behaviour when with Holmes. However they made up in time for 'Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol', and the reunion was a good one, with the film taking nearly $700 million at the box office.
"Tom is a huge movie star for the right reason. He's a very talented actor whose movies have entertained millions of fans," Paramount said in a statement. "His ability to make a great movie, as we saw with the most recent installment in the `Mission: Impossible' franchise -the most successful of the series to date - is the thing that moviegoers remember above all else." 'Jack Reacher' opens on December 21st 2012.
