This Means War

This Means War is a 2012 movie starring Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hardy. It’s a romantic comedy about two CIA agents (partners) who fall in love with the same girl and then – unbeknownst to her – compete for her love.

I love how funny this movie is and light-hearted. It is pure entertainment. The extent to which (FDR) Pine and (Tuck) Hardy go to win their lady’s affections and undermine the other guy are wonderfully ridiculous and entertaining. And most certain in violation of the United States Constitution. Talk about expropriating Agency resources!

Okay, from the photos, you can probably that I have a little bit of a crush on Tuck. As wonderful as FDR was, the decision would have been no problem for me! I mean, look at this guy …

… Plus he has a British accent, an adorable personality and mad fighting skills.

Bourne Movie Number 5

I love the Bourne movies and every couple of months I start googling looking for the newest hints and rumours about the next movie.

After watching the fourth, and seeing how it took place at the same time as the second and third movies and the introduction of next generation Aaron Cross, I anticipated Bourne and Cross meeting and teaming up in the fifth.

Alas, it does not seem meant to be. That probably means that Rachel Weisz won’t be returning either. I still think that is what we will see in the sixth movie though. I’m stubborn.

So what are the newest rumours for the fifth movie, due to be released late summer 2016? Well, the casting is firming up.

I am very excited to see that Julia Stiles is signed on to bring Nicky Parsons back to life. She is pretty much the only person Bourne even remotely trusts since Marie’s assassination and it will be awesome to see them bring her back in. If you don’t remember, she is currently on the run from the CIA so I wonder if Bourne tracks her down or if she is brought back into the plot another way. I have always wondered what their shared history is and hopefully we will finally figure it out in this installment.

There are also lots of rumours that Viggo Mortensen will be in this movie, as one of the Big Bads pitted against Bourne. I suspect he is going to be another CIA desk jockey like Edward Norton played, because he doesn’t have the body of a field agent anymore.

While I’m on the topic of Mortensen, can we please get a go-ahead on Eastern Promises 2 that doesn’t get cancelled?! Any execs reading my blog??? No? Damn.

Another name, Alicia Vikander, is circling the internet rumour sites as a possible female lead, but there doesn’t seem to be any confirmation.

I haven’t seen any proof either, that Joan Allen reprising her role of Pamela Landy, but based on her importance in the last three films, I anticipate her returning, at least briefly, to the screen.

Likewise, I think that CIA Director Ezra Kramer (played by Scott Glenn), Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) and possibly Colonel Eric Byer (Edward Norton) could be making appearances.

Apparently, this movie will only be about Bourne, not a team up with Aaron Cross, but I hope that Jeremy Renner at least appears at the end of the film, or a Marvel style credits scene, to tease out the sixth. Definitely not holding my breath though, that isn’t Bourne style.
