New Trailer, Poster, and Images for BATTLESHIP

     December 9, 2011


A new trailer for director Peter Berg‘s Battleship has landed online. Three thoughts: First off, there needs to be a comma between “Hasbro” and “the”.  Second, Hasbro and Universal want this movie to be Transformers so badly and it’s utterly pathetic to watch them try.  Third, for a movie that supposedly takes place at sea, there’s an awful lot of land.  But watching this trailer, I’m beginning to understand why Universal is unloading all of their Hasbro properties as fast as possible.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with a new poster. Click here for Hunter’s visit to the edit bay and find out what he was told about the movie. The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam NeesonBattleship opens May 18, 2012.

And here are the new poster and images:

Here’s the official synopsis for Battleship:

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.

    How much more can they make this look like Transformers/Battle LA? Let’s just hope it’s as good as either of those. Which is doubtful. But at least the graphics and battle scenes look cool.

    • Liam_H

      As good? Now, I’m confused.

  • Greg

    I have no idea what this movie is about.

    • Mr. Me

      I don’t think anyone will ever know…and that likely includes those that go to see it.

    • Mr. Me

      I don’t think we’ll ever know (even those that go to see it).

  • Will Brandt

    Brooklyn Decker is so gorgeous and sexy. She’s a very talented fashion model and actress. She’ll be wonderful in the film.

    • Warpcrafter

      Wow, somebody’s shopping for a new beard. Don’t think so.

  • mrbutthead

    “From Hasbro The Company That Brought You Transformers”…


    • Adam

      Agreed. Fail indeed.

  • Adam

    Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. And Dumb. This looks as bad as The Three Stooges. What a waste of money…

  • AnaB

    Oh look… Transformers 4! =p

  • Farzan

    First trailer was more effective, but this one ain’t bad. Movie still looks cool though. Will check it out

  • Sean Quintanilla

    What did I just watch? Am I hallucinating or is this actually real? Please someone tell me I’m dreaming! :o

  • David Con

    Okay, you’ve got my attention.

  • Gavin

    Hot chicks? Check. Poor dialogue? Check. Over-reliance on CGI in lieu of compelling narrative? Check. Lots of things getting smashed to oblivion? Check. Loud noises? Check.

    Seems to me if their goal is to imitate Transformers they’re dong a pretty good job.

  • Tim

    Looks really cool. Perfect summer movie.

  • Liam_H

    This thing had $200 million dollar budget but some of the CGI is still pretty crappy, especially the highway collapse with all the cars on it.

  • Yarp

    In the game we control the pegs. Oh my GOD!! We’re the aliens!!! Damn u HASBROOOOO!!!

  • Andy

    Wow! Someone just drank some extra haterade! Looks like a fun movie…. Who cares that it. Doesn’t look like a battleship movie? Looks like a good time

    • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and 14th Assassin)

      … if that’s your idea of a good, fun time.

      Not everyone feels the same way, nor do they have to.

  • tarek

    Yet another Transformers crap.

  • wacko3205

    You know…I really don’t wanna come across as your average everyday, pissin & moanin, run of the mill, cynical, douche chill…but man, damn!

    What the EF?!?!

    I mean…I don’t really know how many different ways this one could go…other than straight down the crapper…but I’m hoping that with Peter Berg pullin the strings & most of the cast having the ability to push buttons…this may actually be watchable.

    That said…I agree with Farzan…the first trailer was a bit more effective.

    I love Brooklyn Decker (so far she’s been hot…& a bit humorous), Liam Neeson’s always good to go, Taylor Kitsch has grown on me, & Alexander Skarsgard got me on first bite with True Blood.



    I mean…I guess, right?

    So…now that I’ve gone & stated that I didn’t wanna come off like your average everyday, pissin & moanin, run of the mill, cynical, douche chill…I’ma take a pass: This flix gonna blow.

    This thingz a sunk Battleship waitin to be sanked…but what the fiznuck…I’ll be standing in line with an ear to ear grin.

    • Old Soldier

      If ANYONE says “fiznuck” in this movie, I’m out. And did you say “sanked”? Yeh, this movie’s for you.

  • wacko3205

    Yeah…yeah I saidit! :-)

    • Old Soldier

      And you’re psychic too.

  • Joe Vee

    A sad, sad time for movies… Where are original ideas? How come epics like Halo couldn’t get the green light, yet rubbish like this waste of cash seemed like a good idea!? PS – getting really tired of the transfromers / inception “Brrrruuum!” in trailers. New gimmick please…?

  • Bryan Montgomery

    Is it wrong that i enjoyed this so much lol

  • dogg

    I’m NOT going to let my hatred for Michael Bay destroy my love for big, dumb alien invasion flicks! Without his rotten sense of humor and condescending attitude, I can turn my brain off and have fun. I just want a director who doesn’t f@#king hate me. Transformers might have actually been good if someone else made it.

    • Scotty

      :) You made me happy

  • Matt

    Only Mr. Beaks at AICN seems to note this, but Berg is doing this flick to get funding for Lone Survivor, the story about the navy seals in Afghanistan.

  • Dark knight

    Judging by the trailer only,this is way better than transformers,first of all peter berg is a good director not like the awful talentless bay and the cast is a lot more interesting then the one in transformers… Neeson,skaarsgard,and a few pretty faces(decker and rihanna) and kitsch seems to be fine not like the annoying douch labeouf… i feel we have give this movie a chance.

  • I cry u smile

    Rihanna might get a razzie award for this one…

  • HelghastUser

    Goldberg was on point with what he said. Watching the trailer did seem like a straight Transformers rip. Looks interesting i guess. More than likely it won’t do well critically but will more than likely do well financially. My only interest in this film is because i’m in the service. First thing i noticed was calling Liam Neeson’s role their “Superior”. As COMPACF hes so high up the chain its like saying that a CEO is a supermarket floor managers Superior. Hes much more than that, Hes the commander for the whole pacific region…

  • Alex–

    They just couldn’t resist that ‘meowizzzzz’ robot noise from Transformers could they?

  • Yahzee

    … oh dear lord what the world has come to… erm, yeah I forgot about Twilight and its sequels, I guess we’re already there…

  • Tiger Mountain

    Alexander Skarsgard doing shaky face? I’m in :D It’s best not to get too critical with this derivative film. As long as it’s not insanely annoying like Transformers then it’s all good fun. Think of it as a 200 million dollar drinking game.

  • Jeff T.

    LOL at the butthurt nerds around here. You really like trashing Transformers and Michael Bay, huh losers? Bay is not even involved in the making of this flick, yet his name is more mentioned than the name of the actual director Peter Berg.

    Seriously, every time a big movie is coming out, there are few idiots on this site who ALWAYS have to bring Transformers and its director. Just admit that you love these movies and don’t torture yourself by playing the role of an angry web hater. It’s getting really old, really fast.

    And a question for the same morons: if Transformers and its director (who in my opinion is THE best action director right now)are soooooo bad, then why is Universal proudly saying that this movie is from the people who made Transformers??

    Answer that, imbeciles. You keep trashing Transformers, yet studios and other directors are using it to PROMOTE their movies. What is that tell you?

    It tells you——- yet again, that YOU, the militant braindead haters, are a complete and utter minority. I’d say you represent only 3% of the entire moviegoing public. In other words, no one cares about you and no one is trying to sell his movie to you.

    They’re selling the movie to the larger and open-minded audience. The audience that loves Transformers and the audience that made Transformers one of the most popular and successful franchises in history.

    So keep spreading that moronic hate. You’re not changing anything and you know it.

    That’s the reality. Time to accept it.

    Steven Spielberg in 2004: “Michael Bay is one of the greatest action directors of all time.”

      “why is Universal proudly saying that this movie is from the people who made Transformers?”

      Why ? Because they are aiming the same audience: Cr@p lovers. ^^
