We got our first look at McG’s next directed feature, This Means War, last month with the film’s first trailer, and it’s set to be a lot of fun when it comes out next year. As an action/comedy/romance film, it shouldn’t be taking itself too seriously, and when you’ve got Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Pine in the leads, you should be on to a winner.
We’ve now got a new poster to share with you that gives us a look at the leading men suited and booted, gun in hand, and Witherspoon standing between them looking better than ever.
“The world’s deadliest CIA operatives are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman. Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever – each other.”
Witherspoon seems to be one of those actresses capable of suppressing the ageing process, looking as young here as she did back in 1999 in Cruel Intentions. The tagline, ‘It’s Spy Against Spy’, seems a bit flat to me, but I’m naturally not going to let it put me off the film.
McG’s last offering in the director’s chair was Terminator Salvation, which I thought was pretty great, so I’ve got high hopes for his follow-up. This Means War will be with us on 17th February next year, and until then, I leave you with the new poster to enjoy. As usual, click to enlarge.
