Trailer for your Weekend: Reacher

English: Director Werner Herzog at a press con...

Werner Herzog!!!

I could give you a whole bunch of reasons why Reacher is probably going to be worth checking out when it is released in January even though this trailer is somewhat middling. I could tell you about the awesome cast members or the very popular source thriller book series by Lee Child.

But let me break down for you nice and simple like why I will be rushing out to see Jack Reacher on opening day, and why you should be too. Werner Herzog plays the villain. Let me copy and paste that sentence in case you think you misread it. Werner Herzog plays the villain. Crazy as batshit Werner. One of the greatest living directors. A man who once lost a bet that saw him cook and eat his own shoe on screen. A man who’s explosive relationship with Klaus Kinski saw him create brilliant films such as Nosferatu (1979) and Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972) but also saw the director threaten to murder his star. For some reason, this guy is playing the bad guy in an action flick. I gotta see that.
