This Means War comes out on DVD this week, and even if you caught the flick in theaters, it might be worth another watch to see Reese Witherspoon getting romanced by her ultracute and charming costars, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. The DVD also has another special treat: a deleted scene featuring Witherspoon's character Lauren flirting with Pine's FDR. Watch them show off their cute chemistry in this postdate scene!
In This Means War Reese Witherspoon plays a woman tasked with a tough challenge when she starts dating two guys (Tom Hardy and Chris Pine) at once, who just so happen to be secret agents and best friends. Her choice becomes harder as the super spies pull out all the stops to win her heart, including some hilarious hijinks meant to sabotage the other's efforts. It may be a corny premise, but it's easy to fall for both leading men and the script keeps it light and funny. Extras include commentary by Director McG, deleted scenes, and alternate endings.
In the Edwardian era, a young lawyer (Daniel Radcliffe) travels to a small town to manage the affairs of a recently deceased local. While he is there, he finds the real case is a string of child suicides in the area. Though he still has many demons of his own, he attempts to investigate as more children die at their own hands. Locals alert him of the legend of the Woman in Black, and before long, he has his own run-ins with the ghost, who is none too pleased to have a man encroaching upon her space. DVD extras include commentaries and behind-the-scenes and making-of featurettes.

We are so excited that the first installment of Suzanne Collins's trilogy The Hunger Games hits the big screen today. The gripping series follows 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen in a postapocalyptic world, where she must fight for her own survival and the survival of the ones she loves. And while the action-packed plot keeps you on your toes, it's the will-they-or-won't-they love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale that really kept us turning pages. Even the actress who plays the girl caught in the middle, Jennifer Lawrence, told Seventeen Magazine she had a hard time picking a favorite: "I think I was [team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped."
It seems some of the best stories on screen center around the complications of choosing between two love interests, from classic films, to '90s TV shows, to huge franchises like Twilight and Harry Potter. We've rounded up some of the most famous love triangles with women in the center of the feud for you to weigh in on which guy you would choose!
Reese Witherspoon popped up in Seoul this morning for a This Means War press conference. She made the trek to Asia alongside her movie's director, McG. Reese left LA on Monday for the latest leg of her promotional tour. Reese spoke about her children, Ava and Deacon, to assembled reporters. She said, "Balancing work and family . . . this is very hard. And I think many women in the world experience that. I am very lucky that I have a very supportive family. My mother helps me quite a bit. And I only make one movie a year. I try to be very careful with which movie I decide to make, because it takes my time away from my family. So I try to only pick the best scripts and work with the best people."
Reese made a quick change following her morning Q&A, which she conducted in a hot pink Michael Kors dress. She slipped into a floral-embellished LBD for this evening's premiere, again with McG by her side. It seems Reese and McG made the trip without their significant others. Reese didn't pose alongside husband Jim Toth, nor did McG with his longtime girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
True love didn't conquer all at the box office over the weekend: Safe House soared to first place with $24 million, edging out former champ The Vow, which earned $23.6 million. Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance made its debut in third with $22 million, pushing Journey 2 into fourth place with $20 million. Reese Witherspoon's romantic comedy had a decent opening weekend, taking in $17.5 million to round out the top five.

This weekend brings two new flicks to the big screen. We've got your sneak peek at the stills from This Means War and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Click through these pictures and see what you have to look forward to in the theaters this weekend.
This Means War's wide release is today, and the rom-com stars Brit hottie Tom Hardy and Star Trek's Chris Pine as two CIA buddies fighting over (a very lucky) Reese Witherspoon. (Check out BuzzSugar's review of This Means War.) Both actors are smokin' in the flick, whether they're fighting bad guys and wielding guns or dressed in their finest for date night. And Chris and Tom have some things in common: they've both played action stars, they've both played shaggy-haired '70s men, and they both have a Star Trek connection. But it seems like every woman we've talked to falls into either the Chris or the Tom camp — so which one are you in? Check out some of the hottest photos of the two sexy stars and tell us: are you team Tom or team Chris?
There's an emerging movie genre that's been gaining steam over the last few years: the hybrid of the action flick and the romantic comedy. As evidenced by new release This Means War, the idea seems to be that a movie that's equal parts romance and action will cross gender lines and sell more tickets. Whether or not that's true, we're taking a look at some of the films that define this category of love and living on the edge.
You don't always fall for the leading man of a romantic comedy, so This Means War provides a doubly pleasant surprise, because you fall for two. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine play Tuck and FDR, best friends who work together as covert agents in the CIA. When they coincidentally start dating the same girl, Lauren (Reese Witherspoon), they agree to have a fair fight for her affections. But as their feelings intensify, their gentlemanly intentions fall away and they both employ their spy resources for sabotage. It's a silly premise, but the combination of the two very charming love interests and a funny script make it a light, entertaining escape.
This Means War isn't all man candy; Witherspoon is at her most adorable as an everygirl who has just enough glamour and sophistication to be the heartbreaker in the middle of two extremely eligible guys. The casting of the three leads gets this movie off on the right foot, and they each bring a surprising amount of comedy to the film. To see why else I enjoyed This Means War, just keep reading.
