The latest Battleship trailer is about explosions and stuff

Mar. 13, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Is this OceanTransformers? Did Michael Bay direct this? Nope. It's just another trailer for BATTLESHIP brought to you by Hasbro the company that gifted you with TRANSFORMERS.

This film really does nothing for me. The only thing that gets me hyped about it is that there will be a Rifftrax of it after it releases on DVD. I like quite a few of the actors in this film, but aside from a paycheck don't get why someone would want to do something like this. I get TRANSFORMERS, I don't get an adaptation of BATTLESHIP.

All I know is that it has got to be better than TORQUE, which is currently one of the worst films I've ever seen. Well, enjoy the mindless fun with the trailer below.

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.

Michael Bay, minus his bull****

...if there wasn't that 'Battleship' name tied to it, and called it 'Honolulu' or 'Damn the Torpedoes' we'd all be much more obviously psyched about this flick.

The action there, dare I say it, looks better than Transformers. And its not in my face with racist stereotypes or dick and ball jokes. I like Peter Berg as an action director (The Kingdom, The Rundown.) He knows how to manage a movie between explosions with some character, story, and class. This could be the movie to see if like me

sorry, but nothing there really distinguished itself from Transformers. They even had a similar building falling down effect... it's just really easy to shit on michael bay at any given chance

Maybe it comes with being older but I am completely over movies like this. Too much CGI, lame casting, overuse of aliens, and a shameless attempt to get box office gross through a brand name. These films are nothing more than an attack on our senses and intellect. I'm sorry, everyone bitches and moans about the amount of unoriginal shit being projected out of Hollywood yet they continue to support films like this. If you give your money to see this, studios are only going to proceed in making

I like good popcorn entertainment as much as the next guy, but I like my movies to be made like movies and to look like movies, not video games. And Rihanna making her way into movies? YECH.

Pretty much replicates Transformers success story, which I'm kind of tired of. I know people dig this kind of stuff, but I think I'm numb to this kind of action now. That said, I'll probably see this if there's nothing better in the theaters that weekend.

I'm not sure how this film even came to be, but it might just be the film the transformers films could of been; a mindless, but actually fun blockbuster.

I think I said this before on this site.

I think it looks like a safe fun mindless action film...and thats cool ( it comes out in the prime season of summer so yea..). If this was named anything esle, it would be on my must see list( not a day one, more like a thursday night type deal) but the fact that it's named battleship and it's based off a board game who's only reference is the pegs....it turns me off alot...

That being said I might just got see this for Rihanna.

Don't badmouth Torque, Niki! That movie is a glorious orgasmic attack on all the senses and logic.

Do you think the studio is sweating a little bit having Taylor Kitsch staring in this one with the underwhelming box office results of john carter?

It's been discussed that marketing was the main culpit in JC's failure not Kitsch.

They really shouldve been sweating the minute they greenlit this and said it was gonna be based on a board game.
