New 'This Means War' Images Confirm Tom Hardy & Chris Pine Will Wear Designer Suits...And Hold Guns

Tom Hardy Chris Pine This Means War
Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, as dueling CIA agents, shake hands while the mutual object of their affections (Reese Witherspoon) watches pensively. A focused Pine leads Hardy and Witherspoon down a corridor, gun at the ready. The two male leads, in black tie, stand on a tarmac either waiting for a helicopter or posing for GQ. These are the newest stills from “This Means War,” the next opus from frat-boy cineaste, McG. The universal cyber-consensus is that this numbingly formulaic action romcom will blight all the bodies of work of those involved. Particularly Hardy who, for the past three years, has had a notable run of fierce performances…that is, until "This Means War" is released.

We’d be lying though if we said we weren’t at least interested to see what bloggers and critics alike do with the film’s title upon its release. Maybe… “McG? This means war!” or “Yes. This does mean war. War on good taste.” Feel free to submit your own. We’re all ears.

The new images only perpetuate the banality of the slick look, smarmy feel and tired premise of "This Means War." If you happen to catch it in theaters, we suspect the seats will be full of men named Ox, or VernDawg, or possibly JägerMonster and their interminably bored dates…

Big explosions matched with regressive sexual politics hits theaters February 17th…a bloody valentine indeed. [TomHardyParty]
