International Trailer For This Means War Boasts More Violence, Even More Sex
As is usually the case, the international trailer for an upcoming U.S. release (in this instance, McGís This Means War) is superior to its domestic counterpart. A little more violence. A lot more sex. Basically, the same thrills with a tweak here and there. Check out the international trailer for This Means War below:
The filmís basically an explosive love triangle, with rival spies Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) surprised by the fact that they are dating the same bombshell (Reese Witherspoon). Instead of acting like mature adults, they wage war on each other, hoping to sabotage each otherís chances.
The closer we get to War, the more intrigued Iím becoming in its execution. I mean, the plotline meshes Alias with Threeís Company, but Iím past that. Now Iím genuinely curious to see how McG rebounds from Terminator: Salvation to handle two-dimensional characters with actual emotions while also juggling the butt-kicking action he attempted in back-to-back Charlieís Angels movies.
And, of course, Iím continuously interested in Hardy, who appears to be making his most blatant bid for commercial success here after toiling away in gritty dramas (the vastly underrated Warrior and Bronson) and icy espionage thrillers (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy). How many people will check out This Means War simply because Hardyís part of Christopher Nolanís Next Batman film? And honestly, does McG care? Or will he just be happy that crowds are turning up for his film? Weíll find out when This Means War opens on Feb. 17, 2012.
