Hardy to fight Pine early- This Means War bumped up to Valentine's Day

Jan. 18, 2012by:

Twentieth Century Fox just announced that they're moving their upcoming release THIS MEANS WAR by three days, launching it on a rare Tuesday. The reason? This particular Tuesday is February 14th, Valentine's Day, and they think that they can get money from people going on dates.

The film stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as spies in a love triangle with Reese Witherspoon, and has been apparently getting great word of mouth from its test screenings. It certainly seems like the kind of mindless film that will play well to couples that celebrate a holiday created by a greeting card company.

“Starting Valentine's Day, we're making WAR, not love. We’re armed and ready with the perfect movie. This is a picture that that has it all – humor, charm, wit and action – and it plays through the roof. ” says Bruce Snyder, president of domestic distribution, rubbing his hands together and dreaming of all that sweet, sweet cash.

I suppose you could do worse if you're dragged to a movie by your date. Check the trailer for the film out below.

I thought for sure someone would have stated the obvious comment of Bane Vs. Kirk!

This as a date night action flick, actually isn't bad. I can think of many worse Valentines day movies to go too.

This looks alright just kind of a time killer. I would see this Valentines Day if I wasn't already told I am seeing the vow.

Looks like mediocre, enjoyable fluff

...which is all McG is good for, really. Not a visionary director or anyone who can make a great film (yet) but he's not as offensively bad as some others.

Chris Pine looks like a caricature in this film. He just looks goofy. What's with the ultra-poofy hair? C'mon, man!

It's a shock to see Tom Hardy thin again (he filmed this after Warrior, then had to immediately bulk up again for Batman - yikes!) but this isn't exactly the career path I was hoping he'd choose. Tinker Tailor, Mad Max

This could have been a huge hit this Valentine's Day...if every woman in the world wasn't planning on dragging her boyfriend/husband to see Channing Tatum in "The Vow". Why would Fox wait until less than a month before the release date to announce this?

As much as I like Pine, Hardy, and Witherspoon I'll be passing on this movie. I'm done with giving McG chances.
