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.

    WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Is this crap really nesessary? Looks like a hundred other movies that have come out in the last year.

    Well, who the hell knows? Perhaps Rihanna will shock the world by pulling out her brilliance and skilful acting in this film that none of us know she has.

  • BeauOnTheJob

    Oh boy . . . another one. Yipee. 

  • Lord Prong

    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.
