Watch a Teaser for the BATTLESHIP Super Bowl TV Spot

     February 3, 2012


Continuing with this year’s tradition of releasing every commercial online before it airs during Sunday’s Super Bowl, a teaser for the Battleship TV spot has gone online. The spot is a bit different from the previous trailers we’ve seen in that it’s incredibly sci-fi-y. Realizing that they’ve made a movie out of a board game, Universal really seems to be playing up the Transformers comparisons. Essentially, aliens decide to attack Earth at sea. The whole “Battleship” aspect comes into play as a giant forcefield appears around a group of naval ships and the alien attackers, locking everyone into a confined area in which to fire away. I’m really hoping that the tone of Peter Berg’s flick is cheeky and fun, but I’m not entirely sure that’s what we’re getting.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser. You can read our Battleship editing room visit here. The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam NeesonBattleship opens May 18, 2012.

    I thought this teaser was about “Battleship”, but all I saw was the word Fandango (written as well as said) a lot of times. Very annoying.

    Am getting orgasms every time I see the trailer for Battleship!
    Its one of the few movies am looking forward to this year.

    That teaser was basically all fandango and no Battleship. I’m excited for the super bowl spot and I know Peter Berg will deliver a fun movie.
