Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy Form the
Perfect Love Triangle in this Action Packed Comedy
Available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22

They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one.  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22.  Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon* (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?

The world's deadliest CIA operatives, FDR Foster (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy) are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Witherspoon).  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 – each other.


In This Means War, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine play characters that have heterosexual man-love for each other, otherwise known as a bromance.  In this feature, we will take a look at other bromance relationships in films, including: Kirk and Spock in Star Trek, Seth and Evan in Superbad and Riggs and Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon series.

Star Trek

Before he was FDR in This Means War, Chris Pine was one-half of TV and film’s most dynamic duo – Kirk and Spock of Star Trek.  The two leaders of the USS enterprise started off bumpy but their friendship evolved as they always had each other’s back as they try to save the universe.  Though one may never have predicted it, there’s no denying the bond of brotherhood between the farm boy from Iowa and the Vulcan half breed.


Bullied by the popular kids, Seth and Evan found solace in each other’s friendship as of the nerdiest kids in their high school.  Unlike Kirk and Spock, Seth and Evan of Superbad aren’t bound by their common fight to save the universe.  Instead, it’s the need to get laid before they graduate high school that pushes the bromance between these two and the friendship between Seth and Evan gets cemented when the pair makes a declaration of their man-love to each other at the end of the film.

Lethal Weapon

The Lethal Weapon series could have easily been another buddy-cop set of films but the chemistry between Mel Gibson and Danny Glover made audiences love the bromance between these two troubled cops.  Starting off as reluctant partners in the first film, these two developed into life-long friends who protected each other as they solved murders and crimes and saw each other began their own set of families amidst their own personal problems.  

Toy Story

So they may not be real people but Buzz and Woody emulate bromance in the toy and animated world.  When they first meet each other, Woody feels threatened by Buzz as feels replaced as Andy’s favorite toy, not to mention that Buzz’s optimistic and gung-ho attitude annoys Woody’s careful ways.  However as the films progress, so does their friendship, especially after they realize that they both just want to make Andy happy.
