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.

  • VVS
    the script was pretty good. This should be fun and an entertaining watch like Friends with Benefits
  • Nonuser
    It will be the Smiths but with a third party. 
  • ChrisBatty
    Why would 2 guys be fighting over Reese Witherspoon? Makes no sense!
    • JL
      I know!  I would totally rather bang Chelsea.  Jus' sayin'.
  • Croniccris
    this movie would of been way more believable if it had alice eve instead
  • Corey_putman
    whose hotter? Reese Witherspoon or Julia Roberts. GO!
  • Dom
    Fantastic! Fresh and fun take on an old concept.
    • John
      PLEASE tell me you were being sarcastic.
  • Bubbab
    Woah... this is actually real. 
  • See James T Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard battle over Elle Woods, February, 2012, in This Means War.
  • Kim
    So very underwhelmed... Don't believe I will be paying full price for this one.
  • Men of honor
    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?...
  • Geese Slitherspoon
    Reese Witherspoon?No. Just, no.
  • See what I did there
    Tom Hardy is BADASS, sadly McG is BAD, and Reese Witherspoon looks like ASS. Lame.
  • 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."
  • KAVC
    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. 
  • Movie seems ok, but Reese Witherspoon's character seems like a bitch. Chelsea Handler being called an old man was nice though.
