People shared two first look photos from the sequel to 2012's "Jack Reacher," with Cruise returning as the titular Lee Childs novel character. In "Never Go Back," ex-Army investigator Reacher helps an Army major (played by Cobie Smulders) who is accused of spying. He also deals with his own personal issues.

"Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" is scheduled for release October 21.
