20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for action comedy This Means War on Apple. Directed by McG, the movie pits fellow CIA operative Chris Pine and Tom Hardy against each other after they both fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). The story is probably about as bare as the previous sentence and one has to wonder how two young, promising actor like Hardy and Pine and got themselves involved in such a silly flick. And let’s not even talk about Reese Witherspoon, who has spent all the good will from her 2005 Oscar on turgid rom-coms.
The trailer focuses nearly entirely on the action the movie has to offer. It’s tough to see why the main characters would go to such length over a woman who is simultaneously dating two men. Overall though, this looks like some decent mindless fun.
This Means War hits theaters on February 17, 2012. Will you check it out at the multiplex? Let us know in the comments!
