New Battleship Trailer Delivers Destruction, Slo-Mo Rihanna

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for director Peter Berg’s Transformers-esque game adaptation Battleship that gives us closeups of the armored suit-wearing aliens, massive explosions and … Rihanna staring at things.

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 fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård 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.

Battleship opens May 18.

    1) Needs more Rihanna looking at things.
    2) Frankly, other than the title which causes giggles, it looks like a good popcorn action film.

    You’ve sunk my Battleship

  • Omegasaga

    Id like to sink somthing into her battleship… err oh whatever. Movie looks cheesy fun.

    But the designs of all the aliens look exacly like the transformers movies- even the sound effects.

    I wonder if Rihanna will let the aliens slap her around and then make excuses for them?
