Transformers-Like New Trailer Surfaces for Universal’s Battleship

Universal Pictures has premiered the new trailer and poster for Battleship, the Hasbro guessing game transformed by director Peter Berg into an alien-invasion movie in which all that stands between Earth and destruction is the U.S. Navy.

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane.

    No films are necessary.  Especially ones like this.  But a mindless romp like this looks like a fun way to waste 2 hrs of my life.  Stop being such a fucking downer.
