New Battleship Trailer Shows Off the Aliens

…because the Hasbro board game it’s based on is all about aliens, right? I don’t remember that in my version of Battleship, and I kept watching the second trailer for the Battleship movie just waiting for someone to yell at the aliens: “You sunk my battleship!!!” That moment never comes, however we do get to see the aliens, see a bit more of the action, and get a look at Rihanna making her feature film acting debut.

Watch the trailer:

The Plot:
Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an 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.

Inspired by 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 Skarsgård 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.
