This Means War Scared Back to Feb. 17 Date by The Vow

Anticipating total Valentine's Day box office domination by competitor The Vow -- the Rachel McAdams-has-amnesia-and-can't-remember-she's-married-to-Channing Tatum weepie -- Fox has shifted their McG-helmed spy love triangle action rom-com This Means War again back to Friday, Feb. 17 to avoid being slaughtered. The Reese Witherspoon/Chris Pine/Tom Hardy romp is still sneaking into theaters on Feb. 14 for a limited pre-opening run, but who are we kidding: Channing Tatum + tears + pining is the way to go, especially if there's no shot at Hardy and Pine running off together in each others' arms.

    This is really disappointing! My boyfriend and I were planning on going to see This Means War for our dinner-and-a-movie Valentine's Day date. Guess we'll just have to rent something instead. :-/

      It may still be opening as a sneak preview near you on V-Day, it's just the official wide release that's been pushed back. You may get lucky yet. No pun intended.

  • Yep says:

    Why not just now go see "The Vow" instead?

  • May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody who genuinely understands what they are discussing over the internet. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must look at this and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you definitely have the gift.
