Battleship trailer up

Battleship
In a world where Taylor Kitsch and Eric Northman are brothers, the US Navy will fight alien boats that look like rejects from Transformers. Under a dome force field. And Liam Neeson is there. But not Rhianna, despite all the hoopla about this being her first movie (which it isn’t even!) And also the navy is using battleships despite them all being retired. I’m getting a Battle: Los Angeles vibe, meaning a generic action film that is neither awful nor good.

The only thing I liked was the alien missiles look like pegs from the board game.

More details on the aliens in the Battleship movie

Latino Film Review got bribed by Peter Berg with a private plane ride and tour of a Navy destroyer to sound all excited for their interview where he explains more about the aliens in the upcoming Battleship movie (the one based on the board game) because the Navy is fighting the aliens. With battleships. And the aliens…are on a boat. A space boat. With guns. Yeah. I’m gonna stay warily on the fence on this one. If you want to read the interview, it’s here. If you want to make jokes about someone sinking your battleship, there is a comment field below. If you want a movie made from the California Raisins’ Board Game, I am sorry to say that hasn’t been optioned yet. Yet.

E8?  B4?  Us aliens don't use your Earth Letters!  ::Nukes entire planet::

Why are ALIENS sinking my Battleship?

Frakkin’ aliens. It’s always aliens. It looks like the “brilliant” writers of the upcoming Battleship movie have decided the only way to make it good is not to make it a well-written battle between two fleet commanders both facing long odds, and instead to add aliens. Yes, aliens. Again, aliens. What the frak????? This isn’t Space Invaders, you idiots! Maybe a Facehugger will select B-7…
