Here’s the deal: it’s sorta like “Transformers” crossed with “Battle: Los Angeles” with a huge dose of explosions. Lot and lots of explosions. If Universal wanted a big-time, loud, costly Summer event film, it looks like Peter Berg has delivered that to them, and then some. I don’t know if the film itself will be any good, but if you liked “Battle: Los Angeles” and the “Transformers” films, I really don’t see how you can NOT like what Berg is offering up here. It’s essentially the same movie from what I can tell in terms of feel, tone, and human cannon fodder — er, I mean, human characters. Please to enjoy the new trailer.

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.

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu, and Liam Neeson.

    At first, I was like “How the hell can they make a movie out of Battleship?” Seeing as how Hasbro made Transformers and G.I. Joe, it seems reasonable that the suits would try to push this film in that direction. The aliens seems humanoid though, so it seperates it just enough from Transformers to claim that it’s different. I’ve loved all of Peter Berg’s films so far and I’m actually more excited to see this after viewing the trailer.

    P.S. Rihanna’s voice is sexy as fuck

    I agree with top comment, if it didnt say Battleship you’d thing ‘must be transformers or something.’ crap.

    How is this discernible from Transformers 4? By name only. If you had shown me the trailer, I would have assumed this is Transformers 4.
