Third Full Action-Filled, Alien-Focused 'Battleship' Trailer Unearthed
"If those ships could do dis, what do you think 50 can do, or 500,000?" Well we won't see that, because this is based on a board game involving 5 ships battling 5 other ships, so it's likely that's all we're going to get (at least until the sequel). Universal has unveiled a third trailer for Peter Berg's Battleship, starring Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård and (yes, still) Rhianna, and it's as action-packed as all the other footage we've seen. This time it focuses on the aliens a lot more, not only showing an unmasking scene, but multiple armored guys appearing in more than one place (read: all over). Still looks very cheesy.
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.
