Posted Wed Mar 6, 2013 at 07:30 AM PST by

The action-thriller starring Tom Cruise will debut on Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount has revealed 'Jack Reacher' for a Blu-ray release on May 7.

Tom Cruise tackles the title role with the brute force his character is known for and his “tightly controlled performance holds our attention all the way through to the tense finale” (Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News). Based on best-selling author Lee Child’s wildly popular series of novels, 'Jack Reacher' was adapted for the screen and directed by Academy Award®-winner Christopher McQuarrie (Best Original Screenplay, 'The Usual Suspects,' 1995). Filled with heart-pounding action, thrills and a “killer chase scene” (Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News), 'Jack Reacher' is “hard-boiled detective story entertainment” (Richard Corliss, Time) that “will have you gasping in surprise at the velocity and ferocity of the action” (Marshall Fine, Huffington Post). The film also boasts “a top flight ensemble cast” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) including Robert Duvall ('Apocalypse Now'), Rosamund Pike ('Die Another Day'), Werner Herzog ('Rescue Dawn'), David Oyelowo ('Rise of the Planet of the Apes'), Richard Jenkins ('The Cabin in the Woods') and Jai Courtney ('A Good Day to Die Hard').

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will include 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary by Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie; Commentary by composer Joe Kraemer; When the Man Comes Around; You Do Not Mess with Jack Reacher: Combat & Weapons; and The Reacher Phenomenon.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
