This Means War Trailer: See Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine in a Sexy Spy Love Triangle

What if Hollywood reformatted the plot of Mr. & Mrs. Smith from he-spy vs. she-spy to be he-spy vs. he-spy over the same she? Then you would have This Means War, the upcoming action comedy from McG which stars Tom Hardy (with his real accent!) and Chris Pine as two secret agents who go head-to-head after learning they are dating the same woman, played by Reese Witherspoon. Oh, and did I mention that This Means War also marks Chelsea Handler's live action blockbuster debut?

Looks fun right? Charlie's Angels director McG returns to his fantasy action fluff wheelhouse with this Will Smith-produced project. After gestating for nearly a decade -- the project was originally slated to star Martin Lawrence and Chris Rock -- we finally get This Means War with next year's Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy and Star Trek star Chris Pine as fictional agents who resort to using their high-tech work gadgets to sabotage each others' personal lives. Witherspoon stars as Lauren and Handler appears as Lauren's sassy best friend, who honorably volunteers to test out both of Lauren's suitors to ensure they are worthy in the sack. In the best line of the trailer, Chris Pine deadpans -- after spying on Lauren as she heeds advice from Handler's "Trish" -- "Why is she listening to that old man?"

This Means War comes to theaters just after Valentine's Day on February 17.

Verdict: Why not?

    This actually looks pretty great. Pure Hollywood fluff, in the best way possible.

    I want to see the complex, erotic European art-house remake of this, where after the initial discovery of Le Witherspoon's two-timing, the next hour and a half is spent with the three of them exploring each other's bodies, until they become confused as to where each of them begins and the other ends.

    Oh, and Chelsea Handler is replaced by Isabella Rossellini in a ladybug costume. Or naked, whichever comes first. She just gets to watch and make wry observations.

    I see Tom Hardy has wasted no time in selling out.

    Over Reese Witherspoon? Directed by McG? I don't buy it.

    You lost me, friend. I mean, I imagine I get what youre saying. I realize what you’re saying, but you just appear to have forgotten about that there are some other men and women in the world who view this issue for what it genuinely is and might not agree with you. You may well be turning away a lot of men and women who might have been lovers of your blog.
