Battleship trailer shows Transformers at sea
Well here's another Battleship trailer, and this one looks and sounds more like Transformers than ever. This is a big event film inspired by Michael Bay's classic work more than anything, and that isn't a bad thing considering it is a big event summer film.
Still, it's enough to make me turn away, or is it. Actually the trailer was pretty effective and drawing me to the film, as a big action event film that is, let's see if it works for you.
Here's the blurb for Battleship and all the name dropping required to grab interest in it on as many levels as possible:
Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by 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 Skarsgård 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. Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander) and Jeffrey Silver (300). The film is written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (Red). The battle for Earth begins at sea.
