This Means War

Both Tom Hardy and Chris Pine have enjoyed quickly rising careers with films like Inception and Star Trek making them household names respectively. Now the two are facing off in this first trailer for the action comedy This Means War. Basically looking like a big budget version of Spy vs. Spy—which the trailer proudly claims—Hardy & Pine play to deadly CIA operatives who find out they've fallen for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon) and use their skills and endless resources to take each other out, make explosions and win the woman of their dreams. Looks like it should be fun, you can see for yourself below!

In This Means War, the world’s deadliest CIA operatives (Tom Hardy and Chris Pine) are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever - each other. McG (Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation) is directing the film from a script by Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and Timothy Dowling (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines). The film is slated to hit theaters on February 17th, 2012 next year.

Random Star Trek connection - Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Tom Hardy (Shinzon) together on screen. I wasn’t interested in this movie until they cast these two in it. They are both incredible actors and it will be amazing to see them bounce off each other in this film. I hope ‘This Means War’ is a grand success - critically and commercially.

Exactly my thoughts. Love Tom Hardy. But this... is unfortunate.

People need to stop thinking with their wangers, it's a lot less trouble. I'll watch this when I'm high on painkillers and glue.

I try as much as I can to use water-based paint. But maybe bat0u

Fuck it, will be a decent flick to take the girlfriend to on a saturday night.

Phillip Gockel on Oct 13, 2011

Xerxexx on Oct 13, 2011

Conrad Williams on Oct 13, 2011

McG is the director Trailer is too long Chelsea doing her old tired routine (loved her till I saw her live, wanted money back) McG is the director Same old story, seen it all before McG is the director This movie is going to suk !!

You forgot Reese Witherspoon's chin and McG five more times

Richie G on Oct 13, 2011


the script was pretty good. This should be fun and an entertaining watch like Friends with Benefits

VVS on Oct 13, 2011


It will be the Smiths but with a third party. 

Nonuser on Oct 13, 2011


Why would 2 guys be fighting over Reese Witherspoon? Makes no sense!

ChrisBatty on Oct 13, 2011


I know!  I would totally rather bang Chelsea.  Jus' sayin'.

JL on Oct 13, 2011


this movie would of been way more believable if it had alice eve instead

Croniccris on Oct 13, 2011


whose hotter? Reese Witherspoon or Julia Roberts. GO!

Corey_putman on Oct 13, 2011


Fantastic! Fresh and fun take on an old concept.

Dom on Oct 14, 2011


PLEASE tell me you were being sarcastic.

John on Oct 14, 2011


Woah... this is actually real. 

Bubbab on Oct 14, 2011


See James T Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard battle over Elle Woods, February, 2012, in This Means War.

Lauren Intong on Oct 14, 2011


So very underwhelmed... Don't believe I will be paying full price for this one.

Kim on Oct 14, 2011


Reese Witherspoon is their dream girl? clearly the CIA has a very bad taste... and killing each other for a girl who doesn't care how many of them she sleeps with? come on, where's the real intelligence comedy than we all wanna see?...

Men of honor on Oct 15, 2011


Reese Witherspoon?No. Just, no.

Geese Slitherspoon on Oct 15, 2011


Tom Hardy is BADASS, sadly McG is BAD, and Reese Witherspoon looks like ASS. Lame.

See what I did there on Oct 16, 2011


In real life, if Tom Hardy were fighting Chris Pine for a woman Hardy would win, the movie would be 4 seconds long, and the title of the movie would be "Don't Blink You'll Miss The Fight."

Quanah on Oct 16, 2011


I dislike the writers and I despise the director, but I love the three main actors, and the trailer made me laugh. Although the background team disappoints me, I'll definitely be catching this. Maybe McG should stick with action comedies of this caliber. 

KAVC on Oct 17, 2011


Movie seems ok, but Reese Witherspoon's character seems like a bitch. Chelsea Handler being called an old man was nice though.
