It looks like Taylor Kitsch is going to have a great year. He went from a little football drama on TV to being cast in the lead roles of two huge Hollywood tentpole films, Disney's John Carter and Universal's Battleship. It will be interesting to see how successful these movies turn out to be, as if they're successful, Kitsch is most likely going to be the next big action star.
Here's a new international poster for Battleship featuring Kitsch front and center looking like he's ready to kick some alien ass. Would you like to see Kitsch blow up into an A-list action star? Better him than Taylor Lautner.
Here's the synopsis:
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.
The film hits theaters in May.
