Third Trailer for Peter Berg's Battleship
03.14.12 by BJSprecher
An action-packed new theatrical trailer — the third, to date — for director Peter Berg's (Hancock) board game-to-movie adaptation, Battleship, is now available for viewing online. The two-minute trailer skips the personal dramas of Naval officer Lt. Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) that dominated previous trailers and TV spots in favor of showcasing the Transformers-esque special effects of the invading aliens and their city-leveling superior technology. Oh, yeah, and it looks like we might actually get to hear Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson) shout, "You sank my battleship," at some point, because the USS John Paul Jones is revealed to be no match for the aliens.
Battleship was written by Jon and Erich Hoeber (Whiteout), with revisions by Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Rounders). The cast includes Josh Pence, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, and Tadanobu Asano.
