Peter Berg’s “Battleship” hasn’t made much of an impact in terms of domestic anticipation as it chugs toward its release date, but it’s already doing plenty of business overseas, no doubt thanks to its glitzy, expensive Hollywood budget. The slam-bang sci-fi actioner doesn’t launch its invasion of Stateside box office until May 18, 2012, but until then, here are a new batch of images to tie you over.
Based on 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 fiance; 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, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård, Josh Pence, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Peter MacNicol, and Tadanobu Asano.
