The latest clip from Peter Berg’s “Battleship” finds Taylor Kitsch (that John Carter guy) and Rihanna (that singer girl making a hell of a mess as an “actress” — good God, is it her delivery that’s bad, or the dialogue?) investigating a captured alien. Never, ever poke a captured alien, boys. Shoulda listened to me.
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 fiance; 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.
Also starring Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård, Josh Pence, Brooklyn Decker, Jesse Plemons, Peter MacNicol, and Tadanobu Asano, Berg and crew prepare for battle May 18, 2012.
