I have several problems with the film Jack Reacher, and it’s your lucky day because I’m about to tell you all about them. They’re based on a series of films by Lee Child, based on the character of Jack Reacher (although none of the books are called Jack Reacher). Reacher, in Child’s visions, is a tall, dark, brute of a man. He’s an ex soldier who was dismissed from the army (for bad behaviour, we’re led to believe) and is now a kind of vigilante. He generally does the right thing, but you always get the sense that he wishes he could just walk away. He’s a good guy, and a bad ass, but not a bad boy, if that makes sense. So the trailer for Jack Reacher is so wide of the mark it’s beyond belief. I mean, Tom Cruise! Sigh.

All that aside, Rosamund Pike looks gorgeous in this lemon-yellow Alexander McQueen dress at the film’s premiere yesterday. The cut-outs could be so cheap, but somehow they work on her. And I wish I could wear that shade of yellow – totes jeal.

(Yes, this post was an excuse to talk about Jack Reacher.)
