Battleship (2012) Movie Image

Basically, it’s all our fault. If it wasn’t for us, the evil Transformers — er, I mean, the evil alien army wouldn’t have shown up on Earth and forced us to fight back. Which once again proves my theory: whenever in doubt, blame those damn space nerds. Check out a new featurette for Peter Berg’s “Battleship” that explores the “Goldilocks” theory of space exploration. And no, it’s not about comfy beds. Though, if you think about it, I guess it could be…

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. 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.
