The action romantic comedy is one of Hollywood's genres du jour, but the film industry has seen some serious misses with movies like Killers and The Bounty Hunter. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like This Means War will be any better. The film stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as BFF CIA agents who are at an impasse when they realize they're both dating the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Rather than dump her, they decide that they'll let her choose which guy she wants to be with, and thus begins the hijinks and date sabotage, with the help of their CIA resources.
The trailer's focus is definitely on the action side: there's lots of explosions, gunplay, and the like. In fact, Witherspoon pretty much takes a backseat to Hardy and Pine as they duke it out for her affections. Unfortunately, there aren't many laughs, other than a one-liner from Pine at the very end. The movie hits theaters next Valentine's Day, but check the trailer when you read more.
