New Action-Packed Trailer For BATTLESHIP Debuts!

Universal Pictures has released a third full trailer for the Peter Berg-directed sci-fi take on the popular game, Battleship. Hit the jump to check it out...

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.



Battleship is set to hit theatres on May 18, 2012.

Matador - 3/13/2012, 9:31 AM
Wow...does this feel like M. Bay did this or I'm just crazy.
GingerBird - 3/13/2012, 9:35 AM

AlexDeLarge87 - 3/13/2012, 9:36 AM
I feel sorry for Liam, Alexander and Tadanobu.

Looks like a mix of transformers, halo and section 8

I want a Monopoly movie directed by Michael Bay starring a Victorias Secret model as the Monopoly Man
Benjamitesandwich - 3/13/2012, 9:40 AM
Now THIS is a movie that can be compared to Transformers, unlike how so many have done with The Avengers. :P
Giraffehead - 3/13/2012, 9:43 AM
The sound effects are a little too close to Transformers.

The machines are a little too close to Transformers.

I'm really quite perplexed as to why this is called Battleship.
Giraffehead - 3/13/2012, 9:45 AM
I concur with TheMarmoset.
Rodimus9 - 3/13/2012, 9:45 AM
I love how people give Michael Bay shit for His Transformers movies, which I will not disagree with anyone on the quality, yet they still go and watch.

Does anyone know the budget? Cause if it's 150million or less I see all profit.

You poor Marvel fanboys, its funny how ya'll hate anything that is not Marvel. The the nerve you guys have to sit here and bring up how this movie sucks because it looks like transformers. When the Avengers trailer is in the same boat because that movie looks like it was filmed by M Bay along with transformers three to the point that I though Shia was going to run out and yell Optimus! Then the thing at the end of the trailer looks like something shock wave left behind but ya'll give that movie a pass because its y'all precious marvel film. All hail Marvel. You guys are a bunch of hypocrites.

"Trasformers" meets "Independence Day" meets "The Abyss."

'nuff said.
Giraffehead - 3/13/2012, 9:49 AM
@dadarkknight

Do you really need to bring this into a Battleship article?
HavocPrime - 3/13/2012, 9:49 AM
@Rodimus - Its supposedly $200 Million
dadarkknight - 3/13/2012, 9:50 AM
@ Giraffehead
Well Marvel fanboys bring Avengers trailer and how its the end all trailer into every article so yeah I do.
MB007 - 3/13/2012, 9:52 AM
Hm, i don't know, might be pretty sweet. :-)
MB007 - 3/13/2012, 9:55 AM
Surprised it isn't in 3D, with al that stuff flying straight in your face.. :-)
dadarkknight - 3/13/2012, 9:57 AM
@VandalSavage

Dude I get laid as a as matter of fact I got laid this morning. Morning sex(in Aston Kutcher tone of voice from that 70 show)is awesome. How about you the immortal intelligent Vandal Savage you getting laid
Rodimus9 - 3/13/2012, 10:00 AM
Havoc@ oh well. It should make its money back.

This movie reminds me of Battle Los Angeles, which made 210million worldwide.
Hawksblueyes - 3/13/2012, 10:01 AM
The USS John Paul Jones? Never noticed that before.
Name - 3/13/2012, 10:03 AM
MB007, it is pretty surpising seeing how this is a new franchise . I guess they're pretty confident of gaining the Transformer audience.
thalidomide - 3/13/2012, 10:03 AM
worst movie of 2012 :P
revjordan - 3/13/2012, 10:05 AM
@TheMarmoset Boardwalk Empire is pretty much a Monopoly tv show.
SuperSomething616 - 3/13/2012, 10:08 AM
Looks good!!!
JillValenfield - 3/13/2012, 10:13 AM
I dont know why, but everytime I watch this trailer I hear Rihannas song "hard" in my head :/

Fits perfectly, I think....

Anyway,it looks good!
Nick56 - 3/13/2012, 10:14 AM
looks more entertaining than most films so ill see it.
smithonator - 3/13/2012, 10:16 AM
Brooklyn Decker's hotness is all that matters. The rest of the movie will probably not be memorable.
HulkbusterNYC - 3/13/2012, 10:45 AM
Just
HulkbusterNYC - 3/13/2012, 10:50 AM

dadarkknight - 3/13/2012, 11:12 AM

If a married man says they do not jerk off they are lying because it times when your woman will get stubborn because she is pissed at your or its that time of the month. Oh yeah Im a Dork and proud to be one I do not have to sound tough on the pc or be embarrassed of my situation thats me.
beane2099 - 3/13/2012, 11:13 AM
I agree, too many trailers are starting to mimic the trailer for Transformers 3 (quick action shot followed by bizarre robot sound & such)and I don't know why (except maybe the billion dollar take that movie got). However, Battleship is also plastering "From the makers of Transformers" all over it. Also, the premise of this movie has nothing to do with the board game they're touting as the "source material". It's pretty clear that they just want to reinvent the wheel here. With Avengers, they may have used that same trailer style (which I hate) but at the end of day the heroes and villains of this story are NOT Transformers lite. Either way, I still contend that someone in Hollywood lost a bet and this is the result.
dadarkknight - 3/13/2012, 11:14 AM
@HulkbusterNYC
P.s as a matter of fact I did get laid this morning what about you lol
Rodimus9 - 3/13/2012, 11:22 AM
Tea@ me too bro
BernieSanders - 3/13/2012, 11:35 AM
I can see it now, the ending credits song is going to be one by Rihanna lol
Rodimus9 - 3/13/2012, 11:38 AM
Tea@ getting laid. Wanking it is like brushing my teeth...after each meal.
CoolantTech - 3/13/2012, 11:47 AM
Dont know about Rihanna being in the film, Liam gives it cool points though, and kitsch well.. is kitsch, dont think that he'll hurt or harm the movie, so with that being said I repect Peter (Hancock) Berg waaayyy more than Michael Bitch, and his adolecent attention span.. I guess I would give it a shot.
Rodimus9 - 3/13/2012, 12:03 PM
Done
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 3/13/2012, 12:10 PM
That was not a well acted trailer. Is this movie a parody?
