Peter Berg is treading the, er, Boards. Universal Pictures has released (via iTunes Trailers), a new trailer and poster for “Battleship” which you can view below.


Based on the Hasbro game and starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgaard, Rhianna and Liam Neeson, it goes a little something like this…

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.

Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson also star in the film which will be out in theaters on May 18, 2012 in the U.S. and April 18, 2012 in Australia.

I’m sure everyone’s said this by now based on the trailer, but it does kinda look like “Transformers”.. at sea. Guess that’s what the studio wanted. Can’t blame ‘em. Are you guys looking forward to seeing this flick?
