How did a board game become a summer blockbuster? Find out when Battleship: Game On! makes its primetime premiere next Monday, May 14, at 7:30PM ET / 4:30PM PT. The Reelz special, which includes a never-before-seen clip from the movie, tracks Battleship's journey to the big screen and profiles some of the real sailors the characters are based on. (Meet some of them after the jump.)
Hosted by Jeremy Parsons, Battleship: Game On! takes viewers to the Battleship set in Honolulu, Hawaii, atop the USS Missouri. The special features exclusive one-on-one interviews with the movie's stars — Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard — and director Peter Berg, who talk about filming in Pearl Harbor on real American battleships and what it was like to work with Navy servicemen and women, as well as World War II veterans.
