New Trailer for BATTLESHIP Features Boatloads of Destruction

by     Posted 2 years, 160 days ago


A new trailer for Battleship has arrived. This is the third such trailer for the feature film adaptation of the popular board game, and it features the most footage we’ve seen yet. The movie still looks fairly ridiculous, but this latest clip highlights the massive amount of explosions/destruction/havoc that graces the screen; at this point, Battleship could easily pass as Transformers 4. We also get a look at some action on land, as it appears we won’t be spending the entirety of the movie on the ocean (paving the way for the sequel Battleship: Land Ho!). Oh, and they tease the alien creatures quite a bit too.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgard. Battleship opens May 18th.

Here’s the 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 fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård 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.

Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander) and Jeffrey Silver (300). The film is written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (Red).

The battle for Earth begins at sea.

    Looks awesome and fun. I hope its better than the Transformers movies.

  • Raptor Jesus

    This will be the surprise hit of the summer. After all the good movies people will want a stupid popcorn movie.

    • Truth Troll

      If that is the case, the stupidity bar has been lowered significantly to allow for this to be considered part of that category.

  • Brandon Avery

    Adam, I’m curious to know why it looks ridiculous to you?

  • Paul

    It’s a stupid summer action movie. All it needs to do is make me care one little bit about the people on the human side & give me a few “Damn” moments.

    I really think Battleship will surprise everyone by just being a fun movie. How is a movie like Battleship any dumber than The Avengers or Spiderman?

    • Liam_H

      Try asking yourself how is Transformers any dumber than The Avengers or Spiderman and you’ll have an idea.

    Fun !!!!

  • Thomas

    To Haters: I think the movie honestly declares itself as a popcorn entertainment. There is nothing wrong with that

  • terry

    Here is the set up.
    The aliens attack the rest of the world while America’s navy sit and ponder what the hell they should do. That is the 2nd act. Third act. America saves the day. Blah,blah, blah. All the rest of the world can’t save itself but America, 5% of the world’s population, will take out these effing advanced alien weapons while a rock and roll sound track blares in the background. And of course there are lots of Abercrombie and Fitch models with their flawless skin and perfect teeth go hoot’n and holler’n as they lay waste to the baddies.

    Why am I not surprised.

      So you’re gonna watch it, amirite?

  • J-rad

    Looks kinda lame and over played for sure but did you see the SPLOSIONS ! Go to a matinee , check your brain and expectations at the door and just be in awwwww or explosions and senseless entertainment for a couple hours.

    There are enough summer movies that have the potential to be good,SMART entertaining movies for everyone that hates on the popcorn flicks , so I will to give this a pass based on the extreme amount of chaos and destruction alone. Everyone just needs to chill out and lighten up. Fun is fun and movies are meant to be fun. So get yur pretentious hipster head out of your ass and enjoy it for what it is.

    Dumb people like dumb movies. This one’s for them!

  • rocky

    So many a-holes in these sites.
    It’s a fun, action fantasy film. It’s meant to entertain and for some escapism

    If you’re too smart for it then stay your dumb ass home and watch c-span or buy The Artist’s dvd and enjoy yourself a “smart” movie

  • ScaredForMovies

    This isn’t transformers 4? I also love how a movie can’t be action/fantasy/popcorn and smart. It’s gotta be stupid for all the dumb dumbs out there. Keep enjoying movies where the plot could have been conceived by a 5 year old. But I guess I’m an a-hole for wanting movies to soar to higher heights instead of the same continuous trash getting released over and over again. I’ve already seen this movie a bunch of times. Transformers, Independence Day, Battle Los Angeles, Skyline, and War of the Worlds. I can only hope it’s as good as Battlefield Earth. And for all you dummies out there that was sarcasm.
    It’s when you say something and mean the opposite.

    Long before Hasbro made it in plastic, Battleship was enjoyed by thousands as a paper an pencil game.

  • aroddy

    If they are really going to go and release a “Battleship” movie, they should go ALL THE WAY and have Liam Neeson’s character say “YOU SANK MY BATTLESHIP!!!” at some point!!
