McG's This Means War Trailer: What a Waste of Three Perfectly Good White People

McG’s This Means War went through a number of cast changes — including Sam Worthington, Bradley Cooper, Seth Rogen, Colin Farrell and Justin Timberlake — before settling on Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, and Reese Witherspoon, as two spies fighting over the same woman. But it didn’t really matter who McG recruited; it still looks like a goddamn McG movie, by which I mean an really expensive episode of “Chuck” with more famous people. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is necessarily not a great thing. McG does feature-length, big-budget sitcoms, and while that may not be your thing, McG is really good at it (which is why he was such a terrible choice for Terminator Salvation). This Means War will be light, fluffy, and completely insubstantial. It’ll make $125 million, and then some dumbass will give McG the rein to The Third Man remake.
