I want Battleship to be crazy, ridiculous, and (most importantly) fun.  Basically the Transformers experience with a higher ceiling.  I see that potential in the trailers we have seen so far, but there is no footage that cannot be made better by enthusiastic Japanese voiceover.  A Japanese trailer for Battleship hit the web over the weekend with new footage.  My optimism is not greater, but sustained at a high level.

Paramount is billing the board game adaptation as “an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.”  Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson star in the Peter Berg-directed feature.  Battleship opens May 18, 2012.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer, plus a director’s commentary on a previous trailer.

IGN sat down with Berg to talk about the last Battleship trailer.  It serves as a nice jumping-off point for a 17-minute conversation about the characters, the story, Berg’s admiration for the military, as well as the extraterrestrial elements and the scope of the movie.

Official synopsis:

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on 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 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.
