A new clip from Battleship has gone online. The movie features alien invaders coming to Earth but first having to deal with some naval warfare. I can buy aliens fighting sailors. I can’t buy a bartender refuses to sell a burrito to a woman who looks like Brooklyn Decker (who plays the film’s love interest) because the “kitchen’s closed.” And rather than have Decker’s character tell him that the “kitchen” is a microwave, she appears to just stand at the bar aimlessly until Taylor Kitsch‘s wayward slacker comes over to woo her. It’s tough to believe that this movie is getting poor reviews from its overseas debuts.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Alexander Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu, and Liam Neeson. Battleship opens May 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Battleship:
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.
