New poster for This Means War

TOM HARDY may well be one of the main men-of-the-moment (alongside Ryan Gosling) and 2012 is already looking like a busy year for the 34-year-old Londoner.

Not content with getting Batman fans amped for his appearance as Bane in Christopher Nolan‘s finale to his trilogy in The Dark Knight Rises, he’s also starring in romantic-comedy thriller This Means War.

He plays a CIA agent who discovers his fellow agent and close friend (Chris Pine) is dating the same woman he is (Reese Witherspoon).

This sets off a game of wits as the duo fight for her affections using any means possible from spy drones to sleep-inducing darts.

Think Get Smart meets Mr and Mrs Smith. Could Hardy prove he’s capable of moving into comedy or will it be another turkey from McG (come on man, give us your full name!)?

A new poster – above – has been revealed.

This Means War is due in UK cinemas on February 17, 2012.
