Our friends at AddictedMovie have sent us the new Japanese trailer for Peter Berg's Battleship. The film stars Liam Neeson, Stellan Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, and Rihanna. The action and special effects look pretty cool for this film, but it is nothing we have not seen before.
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.
Battleship arrives in theaters on May 18th, 2012. Watch the new trailer.
I think that this movie looks pretty intesnse. My biggest concern is Rihanna acting. Luckily, Neeson and the rest of the cast may help balance things out. There is really no connection to the board game. If you watched this trailer for the first time, would you know that there is any connection to a board game?
