Co-stars Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon have a smile on a crisp Los Angeles evening. The 20th Century Fox film revolves around two of the CIA's top agents (Pine and Hardy) who both accidentally fall in love with the same woman (Witherspoon) and wage a battle to win her heart.
Reese Witherspoon reunites with director McG by one of the movie posters. After moving up the release date in an attempt to get the Valentine's Day crowd, Fox pushed back the release date three days to Friday, Feb. 17.
Chelsea Handler wears a long-sleeved striped dress to the Los Angeles premiere of This Means War. In it, the comedian plays Reese Witherspoon's best friend, who persuades her to date two men at once. In order to get a friendlier PG-13 rating, Fox trimmed some of the sex jokes said by Handler's character.
This Means War director McG touts his latest big-screen project. It's been go, go, go for the TV/film director-producer, whose company Wonderland Sound & Vision is in early negotiations to produce Syfy Films' found-footage project Day 38.
