Battleship Teaser Trailer
Here’s the teaser trailer for the upcoming 2012 film Battleship, based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game and directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Hancock).
Battleship tells the story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a Navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans’ so the audience knows exactly where the opponent’s ships are.
Taylor Kitsch from Friday Night Lights will play lead character Lt. Alex Hopper. Among other known names to star in Battleship are Liam Neeson as Admiral Shane, Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It) as Alex’s fiancee and Shane’s daughter, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) as Stone Hopper, Tadanobu Asano (Thor) as Nagata, Hamish Linklater (The New Adventures of Old Christine) as Cal and Peter MacNicol (Ally McBeal, NUMB3RS) as the Secretary of Defense. Singer Rihanna will make her film debut here.
Sure the trailer might look cool, but I’m not sure that it’ll end up being a great film. Battleship will set sail on the big screens on May 18, 2012.
