Though early reviews peg it as a popcorn blockbuster not worthy of your time, Battleship is still sailing its way into theaters late next month. With an impressive cast behind it, plenty of special effects, aliens, and action to get even anyone at least interested, it’s hoping to make some waves at the box office. Now, Universal Pictures has released the latest clip for the film, giving us the first dialogue from Alexander Skarsgard, along with the beginning of the relationship between Taylor Kitsch and Brooklyn Decker’s characters.
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 fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard 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.
Battleship opens everywhere on May 18th.
