First Trailer for Peter Berg’s Battleship Blasts Online

13 Comments

Here’s your first look at Peter Berg’s pre-“Lone Survivor” movie, “Battleship”, or as some people are already calling it, “Battle: Pacific Ocean”, and not without justification. I guess it was inevitable that the film would look awfully familiar, especially since it’s based on a game that isn’t exactly known for its, er, complex storyline. I had expected something more original from Berg, but he’s just a hired gun on this one (it’s well known he did “Battleship” so he could get Universal to fund his “Lone Survivor” movie), and the visuals certainly look slick enough, though I’m still not sold on Taylor Kitsch as a big screen leading man. I mean, sure, the kid has the biceps, but in this trailer and the one for “John Carter of Mars” he still comes across as incredibly dull to me.

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

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

    Wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it’d be. “BattleL Pacific Ocean” isn’t a bad analogy and this could be at least as good and entertaining as that was.

    Whoa, yeah, looks like it could be a fun effects-loaded popcorn flick. But what’s Kitch thinking? Trying to date Neeson’s daughter? Did he SEE “Taken”???

    For a minute there, I though this was the movie adaptation of the classic board game Battleship. I was really hoping someone in the trailer would say, “You sunk my battleship!”

      I believe this IS the adaptation of the board game. They obviously just took the name and a whole bunch of liberties and threw em’ together. Still, not too bad.

        Was there alien ships in board game?.

        I don’t think this movie is based on that.
