Check out a new clip from Peter Berg’s “Battleship”, the epic sci-fi action movie that is based (heh heh) on the Hasbro board game of the same name. The movie is already doing fantastic business overseas, once again proving that as long as stuff blows up real good, foreigners will see it. I call this the Michael Bay Overseas Box Office Rule TM. Mind you, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. I liken it to Americans loving the crap out of Japanese films involving toilet-dwelling zombies, chicks with big-boobs fighting zombies, and schoolgirls with ass-kicking abilities.
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, Tadanobu Asano, and blasting away May 18, 2012.
