Posted Fri Mar 30, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

McG's spy vs. spy action-comedy will be infiltrating Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 'This Means War' on Blu-ray on May 22.

Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon* ('Walk the Line'), Chris Pine ('Star Trek') and Tom Hardy ('The Dark Knight Rises'), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?

The world's deadliest CIA operatives, FDR Foster (Pine) and Tuck (Hardy), are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman (Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis – each other.

Directed by visionary filmmaker McG ('Charlie’s Angels'), 'This Means War' features a funny and talented supporting cast including Chelsea Handler (“Are You There, Chelsea?”), Angela Bassett ('Notorious') and Abigail Spencer ('Cowboys & Aliens').

The Blu-ray will feature the 97-minute theatrical cut and a new 104-minute extended cut with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary by McG on both theatrical and extended versions; alternate endings with optional McG commentary; deleted scenes with optional McG commentary; alternative opening concept: Previz with optional McG commentary; Bachelorette Party feature; uncensored gag reel; and theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
