Best Marketing for Peter Berg's 'Battleship' You'll See & It's Fan Made
It's becoming a trend in Hollywood recently that fans have started to create their own marketing/advertising for movies that's better than any of the real marketing the studio has put out. It happened with John Carter earlier this year and the fan trailers made for that, now it's happening with Battleship. I could not be more disinterested in this shlocky, cheesy CG Transformers-wannabe, but this poster (found on Tumblr) made by Rezaldi Wibi is the best bit of marketing I've seen for Peter Berg's board game movie yet. Finally captures the classic nature of the game and connects it with the movie, but I'm still not sure if I even want to see this.
If you still have any interest in this, you can watch the latest trailer here, though it doesn't sell it any better.
A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an advanced armada of unknown origins in order to defeat them.
Battleship is directed by American filmmaker Peter Berg, of Very Bad Things, The Rundown, Friday Night Lights (the movie), The Kingdom and Hancock previously. The screenplay was co-written by brothers Erich Hoeber & Jon Hoeber, of Whiteout, RED and Man on a Ledge. Universal produced this with a budget of over $200 million. Battleship is currently set to sail on May 18th this summer. Visit their official website.
