Battleship: Featurette on Goldilocks planets offers an explanation of why aliens are in this movie...
Screen congestion and a desire to avoid releasing films when millions of people are likely to be watching the European Football Championships or the 2012 Olympics means that Battleship is actually only about 2.5 weeks away from release for much of the world, hence the stepping up of promo work for the film.
It’s a curious one. When making a “daft” film does putting as much “real” information in it as possible make things better or worse? I mean the idea that these ships couldn’t / wouldn’t be sunk within minutes of their encounter with the space ships seems ridiculous in and of itself, as does much else, but then that doesn’t mean the film can’t be a hell of a lot of fun does it? Divorce, if you can, the fact that it seems silly to 1.) Make a film based on the board game Battleship at all; 2.) Having decided to make said film, make it abbot naval battles between Human and Alien groups at sea, and what we have is a film that looks like it could be cool, action packed popcorn fun. It still looks and sounds way to much like Transformers (The look and sound of the Alien machines that is) . But I guess it does deserve to be taken on its own merits; even if thes So Random sketches do some up many feelings about his movie...
More toys become films?
You want that Strawberry Shortbread movie! Admit it!
“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 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.”
