Reacher's Alan Ritchson and Hilary Swank's upcoming movie Ordinary Angels has revealed its first trailer.

Directed by Jon Gunn, the drama is a hope-infused story inspired by real events. Oscar-winning star Swank pulls off a thick Kentucky accent to play hairdresser and recovering alcoholic Sharon, determined to find a bigger purpose to her small-town life.

She soon reads about Ed (Ritchson), a widower and father of two who struggles to make ends meet and is snowed under with medical bills for his youngest daughter Michelle, on a liver transplant waiting list.

The optimistic Sharon shows up at Ed's door with some cash and a smile, sneaking her way into his closed-off life and working tirelessly to get his bills erased, all while setting up a fundraiser for Michelle.

Penned by Meg Tilly and Kelly Fremon Craig, the script is guaranteed to include some seriously emotional moments as the trailer hints at a medical emergency that will see the little girl in need of a new liver quickly.

Alongside Swank and Ritchson, Ordinary Angels also stars Nancy Travis, Tamala Jones, Drew Powell, Amy Acker, Skywalker Hughes and Emily Mitchell.

Elsewhere on the big screen, Ritchson will appear in the new chapter in the Fast & Furious franchise, Fast X. The Titans actor, who shared a video from the heavily-guarded set last year, portrays Agent Aimes.

He will also appear in Guy Ritchie's next film, a spy flick titled The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and also starring Henry Cavill, Eiza González, Henry Golding and Alex Pettyfer, among others.

On the small screen, Ritchson is expected to return as Jack Reacher in the second season of the TV show of the same name.

Reacher is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
