Chris Pine vs. Tom Hardy in This Means War Trailer

I honestly have no idea where Tom Hardy finds the time to sleep, much less show up on movie sets to shoot all these movies that he’s currently in. He’ll be trying to break the Batman in “The Dark Knight Rises” in 2012, but he’ll also be trying to kill (or at least maim) new Kirk aka Chris Pine for Reese Witherspoon’s affections in McG’s “This Means War”, one of those action-comedies that will either work really well (“The Whole 9 Yards”) or go completely bust (“The Whole 10 Yards”). Can’t really tell from this trailer, but the movie certainly has the pedigree to work. There are actual bad guys in this movie, right? It’s just about the two of them fighting over her? Hopefully.

The world’s deadliest CIA operatives are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman. 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.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, Laura Vandervoort, Til Schweiger, Chelsea Handler, Abigail Spencer, Angela Bassett and directed by McG.
