'This Means War': Tom Hardy, Chris Pine can't share Reese [video]

October 13, 2011 |  3:52 pm


Because Reese Witherspoon doesn't have enough, her new film "This Means War" sees leading men Tom Hardy and Chris Pine duking it out for her affections. Literally duking it out.

In a new trailer for the film, Hardy and Pine, playing bromantic CIA operatives, start out all guns-blazing, BASE-jumping, suit-wearing beefcake before learning they're both courting Witherspoon's Lauren Scott, a predictably bubbly blond with a little bit of an edge (black eyeliner seems to differentiate Lauren from other Reese incarnations). 

Her look is sexier, but Witherspoon's trademark moral anxiety comes into play as she questions herself for dating two men at the same time. Enter Chelsea Handler, who impressed us with this crack on her pal's dilemma: "Do you think Gloria Steinem got arrested and sat in a jail cell so you could act like a little [Reese Witherspoon with moral anxiety]?"

Glitterbomb and pop enthusiast McG, of the "Charlie's Angels" film franchise, directs. Watch the trailer -- caution, there are a couple of adult words -- and tell us what you think. Will you go see "This Means War"?
