As Christmas is nearly here so I was doing what a lot of the world is doing a bit of Christmas shopping, I think I should do it more as it looks like an explosive few hours! Starting with the explosive second official (uk) trailer for Peter Berg’s BATTLESHIP!!! As the world waits for the official first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises (Yes its coming tonight!!!) we have a few nice ‘teasing’ trailers and to be honest with no Transformers sequel in 2012 I think this one could be the alternative ‘filler’film Universal Pictures want this want to be. From sound design, the movement of the ships,visuals basically in whole this feels of just feels like Transformers, I really want to like this so far I’m finding it hard, all I can hope is this film is one you have to see it to appreciate it. Is it me does those aliens when you get a glimpse of them in suits do they look like Halo game suits? The aliens eye suggest also they maybe reptilian in nature and for a film its meant to be a war on water they do spend alot of time on land. Will Mr Peter Berg take his mask of and reveal Michael Bay…
BATTLESHIP will be out in UK& Ireland April 20 2012 starring Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Deker, Alexander Skarsgård, Josh Pence, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Peter MacNicol, Tadanobu Asano.
Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård as Hopper’s older brother, Commanding Officer Stone of the USS Samson; Rihanna as Lt. 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.
Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom) and Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander).
