The scene sees Cruise's title character warning five men against taking him on in a fight, before proving to them that they should have listened.
Cruise stars in the film adaptation of British author Lee Child's novel series, written and directed by The Usual Suspects scribe Christopher McQuarrie.
The clip is the second official clip to be taken from the movie, following a scene featuring David Oyelowo detailing Reacher's military backstory.
Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall and Werner Herzog round out the supporting cast of Jack Reacher, which is directed by McQuarrie.
Jack Reacher will be released on December 21 in the US, and December 26 in the UK.
