Battleship - The Trailer Has Arrived



In Summer 2012 the battle for Earth begins at sea 

Apparently, and according to the movie loosely based on the classic boardgame,  the next time we will fight an alien invasion will be at sea...

How do we say "You sunk my battleship!" in Klingon again?
Ah, yes, it's "SoH sunk wIjbattleship!" I think...


Here's what out friends at Geeks of Doom are saying about Battleship:

We’ve known for a while now that director Peter Berg (The Rundown, The Kingdom) would be taking the unlikeliest of routes when he took the popular board game, Battleship, and turned it into a movie. Instead of just going with a movie about a bunch of ships doing battle in the middle of the ocean, it was decided to add a little spice in the form of an alien invasion.
In the movie, Naval officers based on the USS John Paul Jones (named for the man who’s getting his own slightly twisted movie titled Here There Be Monsters) discover a strange craft that turns out to be aliens who are attempting to build a power source from the Earth’s oceans...


So, yep, we've got like a game based movie with a touch of alien invasion in it... 
Why not? That might work after all.

Enjoy...
