    Watch: Video For Maroon 5's 'One More Night' Directed By Peter Berg & Featuring Minka Kelly

    After bringing a board game to life in this summer's bellyflop "Battleship," Peter Berg decided to give himself another challenge, one arguably harder than bringing a board game to the big screen: he has to make you belive that Adam Levine is a sensitive boxer. That's right, block ...

    Review: Waterlogged 'Battleship' Is A Cynical, Nonsensical & Boring Blockbuster

    'Battleship' Director Peter Berg Loses His Shit, Calls Israeli Reporter A Draft Dodger In Interview

    “Battleship” helmer Peter Berg certainly has a personality we’d describe as brash, whether he’s spouting out ideas for sequels to “Hancock” or making an argument as to why his upcoming blockbuster has little to do with the board game it shares its namesake with, he’s a filmmaker who likes to have hi...

    Then Why Is it Called 'Battleship'? Peter Berg Says The Movie Has "No Direct Correlation" With The Game

    At this stage, it seems that rather than providing it the safety of an established brand name to lean on, the connection to Hasbro’s “Battleship” game is proving to be more of a hindrance than a help to Peter Berg’s upcoming blockbuster. While a film about "Transformers&...

    Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch & Ben Foster To Suit Up As Navy SEALs In Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor'

    "It was pretty obvious to me [Universal] weren't jumping head over heels to make a war film in the Middle East right now," Peter Berg said way back in 2009. "So they said, 'What if you give us 'Battleship' for July 2011, and we guarantee you'll follow with ...
