Reese Witherspoon & Chris Pine Work on 'War'

Reese Witherspoon & Chris Pine Work on 'War'

Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine film scenes for their upcoming McG-directed comedy This Means War on Tuesday (October 5) in downtown Vancouver, Canada.

At one point, Reese shot a scene where she almost went to ‘war’ with two police officers! In other shots, the 34-year-old actress frantically ran down the street.

It was just announced that comedian Chelsea Handler will be playing Trish, the best friend to Reese‘s character in the film. The pic is about two best friends (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who wage a war for the affection of a woman (Reese Witherspoon).

10+ pictures inside of Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine filming scenes…

    Random Star Trek connection – Chris Pine (James Kirk) and Tom Hardy (Shinzon) together on screen. I hope other Star Trek actors appear in This Means War as well. I wasn’t interested in this until they announced that it would be these two in the film and now I am really looking forward to it. I hope it is a huge critical and commercial success.

  • Nicole

    I’m definitely seeing this!

  • James Kragen

    I hope that Kirk will have several human love interests in Star Trek 12 and they are played by Hollywood’s most beautiful young actresses. They should include some scenes similar to the ones in “The Conscience of the King” episode with Kirk and Lenore on Planet Q and on the Enterprise which were light-hearted, romantic and character-driven with them connecting and getting to know each other as well as the scenes in “The City on the Edge of Forever” with Kirk and Edith Keeler.

    Kirk needs to have better fighting skills and more brutally effective. He lost nearly every fight in Star Trek (2009). He should have been a hardcore badass like Christian Bale in Batman Begins and particularly in The Dark Knight, Daniel Craig in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, Matt Damon in the Bourne trilogy and Liam Neeson in Taken. He should have won the fights against the Starfleet officers, Spock and Nero. The fight between Kirk and Nero was pointless and anticlimactic. A wasted opportunity for an amazing and action-packed fight which would have made Kirk’s triumph at the end all the more emotional and uplifting. He didn’t seem to care about avenging his father. He should have gone after Nero after shooting Ayel. The fight between Jean–Luc Picard and Shinzon at the climax of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) was more satisfying and even the William Riker and Reman Viceroy showdown.

    I’ve heard from several people that Chris is acting like a little diva on the movie.

  • jaceym

    I ‘like’ this. A lot.

  • shelly

    I hear the script to this movie is lousy ! Why is Reese continuing to make hideous film choices ? These horrible romantic comedies are not cutting it. Who is managing her career ? She truly needs to take more risks. Witherspoon needs to get back to her edgy indie roots. I missed her good performances in ” Election”, “Freeway”, “Pleasantville”, and “The Man in the Moon”. Now, Reese is only going for the paycheck roles, and it is hurting her credibility. The talented Ms. Witherspoon, please comeback ASAP !

    P.S. To be fair, I hear the script to the upcoming “Water for Elephants” is actually pretty good.

  • Tonianne

    Could the movie studio try to promote this movie any harder? Besides the fact that no one would believe that 2 good looking and sane men would fight over Reese, the studio must have also realized that the movie just sucks. It would have been another boring Reese rom com, but 2 guys fighting to be with her makes the movie become some kind of Sci-Fi movie.

  • mia

    as far as i can tell from the pictures released for this movie, it is about reese withersooon walking up and down stairs, and on sidewalks outside.

  • kateduli

    seriously i love this guy

  • amanda


    yeah it really hard to be believe that someone who has dated or married two very attractive guys, jake and ryan, would have two very attractive guys fight over her…yeap don’t see it. hate on loser.

  • mailey

    i looove her outfit in this.

  • Dee

    @amanda: I doubt that CP is acting like a diva with the cast and crew in the film…..but surely he’s not comfortable with papz and all the other guys with cell phones with cameras pointed at him around the set…….. well this isn’t new, is the way of CP!

  • lisa

    @Tonianne, totally agree. Maybe it is sci-fi or some kind of spoof. I am rather unsure why the incredibly gifted Tom Hardy is in this crap, but having said that, I think he is so freaking good that he could turn this into a watchable movie. In addition Chris Pine is in it as well, so the two of them are likely going to generate fireworks stealing scene after scene and mesmerizing the audience. I wish the crossfire of their fight would incinerate boring Reese within 5 mins of the movie start, but I am afraid we will have to endure her walking on and off sidewalks and up and down stairs for more than we could possibly endure. Thankfully the leading men would be sufficient distraction! In this sense, the casting screwed up royally but then managed to recover rather well.

  • Tina

    Cool, let’s see a good fight between Kirk and Shinzon! I am all for it :-)

    Reese is a disastrous miscast here.

  • S@n

    @lisa: Director McG said in an interview the film is an action comedy in the style of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Oceans 11.

  • S@n

    Chris Pine looks in the pics as if he finally was already at war, he seems tired of the day on set, but looks GORGEOUS as always!!!

    Reese also made crowded scenes. And in real life she got Ryan and Jake, why not in fiction?
    And it is nonsense to talk about it, it’s only a movie!

    I’ll see for sure!!!! For CHRIS PINE!!!

  • Tina

    S@n the fact she married Ryan and dated Jake only indicates to me that those 2 particular guys have rather strange weird taste in women. Still, Avon rep Reese does not fit the role of mighty charismatic woman capable of unleashing an epic war, particularly between these two guys, no matter how short they cut her skirt and how much hairspray they put on her extensions. Is the attempt of selling her as some kind of Angelina Jolie that I find rather pathetic.

  • keachick

    Goodness me, people. Please…

    To Kragen: this is not about Star Trek. Chris Pine is acting in a romcom movie, which has nothing to do with Star Trek. Totally irrelevant.

    Listening to and repeating rumours about how bad (or otherwise) a script may be is really silly, imo. The fact is that all we are seeing are snapshots of the actors on set. Their facial expressions etc may or may not be part of the act demanded of them by the script. We don’t know and I doubt that anyone will tell us, so why all the speculation?

    I am enjoying getting a tiny insight into the movie set. Chris Pine looks so gorgeous in blue! It is definitely his colour. Just hope he and the other actors are enjoying their role playing and find the work interesting and fulfilling.

    Take care, Chris. Don’t let the papz/cellphone bugs bite. Love.

  • ollie

    I’m just over Reese. I think her face and neck look saggy here. She needs to move on to more mature roles and leave the cutesy stuff to Anna Faris, Rachel McAdams, Anne Hathaway and the next generation. She is turning into Cameron Diaz who also needs to be told to stop pretending to be a 20 something “girl”.

  • oh no…

    Are we getting daily updates of this dumb project of two men fighting over Reese (once again, LOL) on an almost daily basis now?!

  • keachick

    OK, Ollie. Just had a really good look at the Reese photos and can’t say I see any sagginess. Geez, people…
    Anyway, we don’t know how “cutesy” her character Lauren is. I have not read the updated, current script that she and others are working to now. Have any of you in fact?…No, I didn’t think so.

  • S@n

    Oh no…

    Nobody is obliged to look if you don’t want!

    Yes, I want to see daily updates on the set of TMW! And thanks JJ for this!!!

  • Anni

    This mess of a movie actually has a script? oh wow! must have borrowed it from one of Reese’s previous “fighting over me” films. LOL
    Ya don’t have to read it to know it’s just …..bad. The whole idea of two men fighting over Reese in three films one after another is …..beyond bad!

  • skipping it

    McG has never made a decent movie. This is going to be a mess. Seriously who thought Chelsea Handler mugging through a scene would be a good idea? Did you see her host the VMA’s she was horrible!

  • nan

    So far it looks like this might just be a good movie.
