Battleship Trailer Released by Universal

Battleship Trailer Released by Universal

Thompson on Hollywood

Universal has released the long-awaited trailer for Battleship (posted below), based on the Hasbro classic naval-combat game of tiny plastic pieces and deceit. The trailer already seems a little muddled, when a space-ship flings out of the water like a football field-sized metal piranha and begins to slings pegs–yes, pegs–into the side of a boat captained by Liam Neeson. However, with a reported $200 million poured into the film from Universal, the special effects shouldn’t be anything but spectacular.

The Peter Berg film, which opens May 18, 2012, also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Taylor Kitsch.
