This Means War – 2012 Movie Trailer

Taking a page from the genre mash-up  films True Lies and Mr. & Mrs. Smith,  This Means War attempts to capitalize on the unique blending of action, dark comedy and romance. It’s a weird little genre mix-up that has usually produced fun results. But what makes this film especially unique is the casting coupe of landing two of the biggest , high profile, up and coming action stars in Hollywood, the charming Chris Pine from Star Trek and the red-hot Tom Hardy. Hardy is especially scorching career wise. He’s coming off a high profile role in Christopher Nolan’s Inception, and the 2011 award season favorites Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier  Spy. As for his next film, why that would be as the villan Bane in 2012’s most anticipated film The Dark Knight Rises. Who plays the ingenue to Hardy and Pine’s affection?  Well that role has fallen to Academy Award winning actor Reese Witherspoon. Usually the star of drama and comedic movies, the film is her first foray into the action genre.

As for the trailer to This Means War,  it looks like harmless fun. It features McG’s trademark style and sensibilities. Which, depending on one’s personal taste,  is either good news or dreadful news. Personally, I think it”ll just be alot of fun seeing Hardy and Pine playing off each other.

This Means War stars Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine. The film is written by Timothy Dowling and Simon Kinberg. This Means War is directed by McG and is scheduled for release February 17, 2012.
