Oh good. The new trailer for Battleship is out. Yes, the movie based off the table top game of shouting numbers and letters till your little sister gets pissed off and flips the game board is on its way to theaters (opens May 18 2012). The first trailer showed us that the movie is based around battleships fighting aliens that leads to explosions. This one? Builds on that, see it’s battleships fighting aliens that leads to explosions that are in slow motion. BRILLIANT!
Oh and we also see more of Taylor Kitsch, Rihannaand Alexander Skarsgard, some saliory talk (not salty sea language, just jargony dialogue) and some aliens or something. Flashing lights, explosions, I think some screaming… I don’t know I started drinking heavily halfway through.
The word is that director Peter Berg‘s goal here was to out-‘Baysplosion’ Michael Bay with this movie. Doesn’t he know how dangerous that is? Bay will come back with an even bigger ‘Baysplosion’, Berg answers back with double the ‘Baysplosion’s’ and soon we have a ‘Baysplosion’ big enough to destroy us all!
The Trailer is after the jump. Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going back to finishing my Connect 4 screen play
