Peter Berg's Battleship crashes onto home video this August

Talk about cutting your losses! Peter Berg's $200 million sci-fi epic BATTLESHIP hit theaters here in the states less than two months ago, and thanks to weak box office, it will be washing up ashore on Blu-ray and DVD next month. Just a little over three months from theaters to DVD; that's an SOS right there.

In any case, BATTLESHIP will become available on AUGUST 28th in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. If the movie got you wet the first time around, there will be TONS of special features, which is something, I guess. Among them:

· Preparing for Battle – Hear how Hollywood teamed up with the US Navy to transform a beloved board game into a big-screen blockbuster.
· All Hands on Deck: The Cast – Witness the actors getting into the military mindset and Navy veterans having their time in the spotlight in this salute to the people at the heart of the story.
· Engage in Battle

Extra Tidbit: If you missed BATTLESHIP in the theater (and you most likely did), will you try to sink it on DVD?
