Even though “Battleship” is still almost a year away from coming out in theaters, it’s already pretty easy to tell just what kind of movie this is going to be. If you like your films to be heavy on explanations, completely out-of-this-world wacky, and contain a bunch of people that you never expected to star in a movie together, than this could very well be up your alley.
The whole premise of this movie (U.S. Navy-meets-alien-invasion) may be the most bizarre thing we have seen our fine men and women depicted doing since Jamie Foxx battle an airplane with its own brain in “Stealth.” Even more bizarre? This movie stars Rihanna — though for some reason she is not used to her full potential (or any potential) in the trailer below. Instead, we do see the likes of Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, and Alexander Skarsgard — who are all famous, but Rihanna is just as big of a name (if not a bigger one) than all of them.
This movie is likely going to serve as an early cornerstone of next year’s summer movie season when it hits theaters next May. There is still one question worth asking, though — do you really want to go pay to watch this movie, or would you rather juts get out the old-school “Battleship” game and play it for yourself?
