Looks like we’ll get to enjoy This Means War a few days early! The studio have moved the films release date forward to Valentine’s Day (from February 17th), thanks to “outstanding test screenings and strong word of mouth”.
Twentieth Century Fox has bumped up action comedy “This Means War” to coincide with Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, Feb. 14.
Pic, which stars Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon, originally was slated to bow three days later, but Fox moved the pic to benefit from the holiday’s increased couples turnout.
“Starting Valentine’s Day, we’re making ‘War,’ not love,” quipped Fox prexy of domestic distribution Bruce Snyder. “This is a picture that has it all — humor, charm, wit and action — and it plays through the roof.”
In the film, Pine and Hardy play best friend CIA operatives, who fall for the same woman (Witherspoon). “War” is directed McG, from a script by Timothy Dowling and Simon Kinberg.
The holiday can be a big moviegoing day for romantic comedies. Last year, Sony’s “Just Go With It” won Valentine’s Day B.O., while Warner Bros.’s timely release “Valentine’s Day” broke records over the holiday in 2010.
“War” recently received an R rating for “some sexual content,” though Fox plans to appeal to the Motion Picture Assn. of America’s Classification and Rating Administration board.
To mark the start of promotion for This Means War, Reese is gracing the cover of the new February 2012 issue of US Elle! A slightly photoshopped cover is more than made up for by the absolutely gorgeous photoshoot inside! The interview is really nice too, and Reese talks about the movie, her new husband, and love. The interview also features several interesting quotes from friends and former directors and co-stars, who all talk glowingly about Reese, of course.
The cover has been added to our Gallery, along with scans from the full spread which do unfortunately have horrible watermarks right through the middle! You can see still the stunning photos in them, but rest assured I will be replacing these with better quality scans as soon as possible
“I’m more womanly. I feel sexier. I’m more comfortable with my sexuality as I get older. When I was younger, I didn’t know why men were starting to look at me. Now I know why men are looking – and I’m cool with it.” – Reese Witherspoon in Elle
Just a small update today – I’ve added another 60+ photos from the This Means War re-shoots that we had pics from earlier this month. In some of these photos we can see Reese filming additional scenes with co-stars Chelsea Handler, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
Updates will likely be slow/non-existent from now up until Christmas, due to the busy holiday season! However, I will be adding more film screencaptures plus new/additional content asap after Xmas Day itself (if not sooner, depending on time!). I’m hoping I might have time to get in a few Christmas-sy Reese treats too!
Looks like they are doing some last minute re-shoots on This Means War, as Reese was snapped back on set in Los Angeles a couple of days ago! Reese is seen laughing and gesturing whilst standing outside a building by a yellow car, wearing a black top and trousers with a brown leather jacket. I wonder what they are re-shooting and why!
This Means War is scheduled for release in the US on February 17th 2012.
The first trailer for This Means War has recently been released, and it was closely followed by a poster and stills! You can watch the trailer embedded below, or enjoy it in HD at Apple. The HQ stills and posters, plus HD screencaps from the trailer, have all been added to our Gallery.
The official synopsis for This Means War is as follows:
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.
The movie will be released on February 17th 2012, and the Official Site, Twitter & Facebook pages are online for viewing/following/liking now.

Reese Witherspoon broke down in tears on the set of upcoming movie “This Means War” when she was shown playback footage of her performance, because she found her acting “horrifying.”
The “Legally Blonde” star admits she struggles to watch herself onscreen and rarely ever revisits her projects once filming wraps – but she made a fool of herself in front of director McG after he called her over in between takes to review certain scenes.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, “I can’t even watch playback of myself on a movie. McG was showing me some footage of ‘This Means War,’ and I just went apoplectic. I couldn’t talk, I started to cry.
“I don’t watch any movie I’m in. What’s enjoyable about that? It’s horrifying! I’ll see it in a dark room one time with my managers, who I’ve been with for 18 years, and we’ll talk about it for 10 minutes afterwards – and that’s it…”
And Witherspoon blames her insecurities for her refusal to watch her own takes: “I’ll just focus on something stupid, like, ‘I hate my laugh. Why did I smile?’ Sometimes I look at myself and think, ‘Dude, I have the biggest, goofiest smile on earth.’”
