"War" is coming sooner than expected.
The studio claims the release-date change is due to strong test screenings and word of mouth for the comedy-action film, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
“Starting Valentine's Day, we're making 'war,' not love," 20th Century Fox President of Domestic Distribution Bruce Snyder said in a statement. "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.”
In the film, Pine and Hardy star as best buds who both work for the CIA. When the covert agents realize they've fallen for the same woman, played by Witherspoon, they wage an escalating war for her affection.
McG is directing "This Means War," while Will Smith and his Overbrook partner James Lassiter are producing, with Simon Kinberg and Robert Simonds.
