Several recent high-profile releases are coming to Netflix Streaming over the next week, starting today with “Jack Reacher” starring Tom Cruise as the titular hero. Based on the series of books by British author Jim Grant, who writes under the pen name Lee Child. “Jack Reacher” also stars Werner Herzog as a villain in an inspired bit of casting.
Arriving tomorrow is the soon-to-be-cult favorite, “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” starring Jeremy Renner & Gemma Arterton as . . . well, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Another action film from last year, “The Last Stand” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnny Knoxville arrives on January 5, and features some terrific action sequences. Neither film did well at the box office, but are well worth checking out from your own couch.
