Five new developments.
Tom's 50th Birthday
Celebrate Cruise's birthday milestone
It’s been quite a week for Tom Cruise.

Not only did Katie Holmes file for divorce from him four days ago, but the iconic actor turned 50 today. Career-wise, he shows no signs of slowing down: in fact, the first teaser trailer for Cruise’s new film Jack Reacher hit the web today. Slated for a December 21 release, it will be his first to hit theaters since splitting with 33-year-old Holmes.

Is Jack Reacher action-packed, dramatic or romantic?

According to IMDB, the film is about a homicide investigator (Cruise) who digs deeper into a grisly case; it involves a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. (See new photos from the movie in the gallery above.) The film is based on a book in Lee Child’s crime series.

But judging by a shot in the teaser trailer, there might be a touch of romance, too. Take a look:

Jack Reacher isn’t Cruise’s only new project. The actor has been shooting Oblivion in Iceland, but he boarded a jet in the early hours of July 3 to return to Los Angeles, where he will celebrate his birthday.

Meanwhile, Holmes has been holed up in her new $12,000-a-month NYC home with daughter Suri, gearing up for what many believe will be a bitter custody battle.
