Universal has release eight (count’em, eight) whoppin’ clips from Peter Berg’s seafarin’ alien invasion flick “Battleship”. But just because most of the movie takes place on the ocean, don’t start thinking it doesn’t have the same kind of alien destroyin’ gooey goodness you’ve come to expect from your sci-fi alien invasion movies. From the looks of it, Berg hasn’t exactly gone out of his way to make “Battleship” different from, say, “Battle: L.A.” or the “Transformers” movies. If nothing else, you gotta admire the film’s lack of ambitions, right?

The plot finds a fleet of American battleships forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins (re: aliens up to world-ending shenanigans) in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals. Translation: let’s blow’em back to wherever they came from!

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård, Josh Pence, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Peter MacNicol, and Tadanobu Asano.

The battle commences May 18, 2012.
