5 weeks time Another hasbro game/toy will invade earth in the shape of Peter Berg’s BATTLESHIP and tonight the film has new 4 posters showing off the human characters of this film.
Whilst the footage may excite us on the action levels with sound design that clones its fellow hasbro title Transformers we know it will give us ridiculous amounts of silly cheesy fun that we expect from a spring/summer blockbuster. The posters show Liam Neeson looking like he’s been painting on the oil of oily like its going out of fashion, Stellan Skarsgaard trying to be in top of the line for a Red Scorpion remake, Taylor Kitsch wandering if there’s life after John Carter and Rihanna just trying to be eh Rihanna. If I was to be honest these posters are more evidence of why designers should be trained properly on how to use photoshop correctly or just use some other design package (I trained as a designer) as these posters are terrible, very generic.
The Invasion will start April 11th in UK&Ireland with USA getting it May 18th. BATTLESHIP stars 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 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.
