You think of the board game Battleship and automatically you think of aliens, right? No? Agreed – the game had nothing to do with aliens. But, Universal Pictures and director Peter Berg are hoping that won’t matter when they launch Battleship the movie in theaters on May 18, 2012.
Battleship is inspired by the Hasbro game of the same name and stars Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu, and Liam Neeson.
Watch the Super Bowl trailer:
Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, the epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.
