Yeah, I know, it kind of surprised me too. The Super Bowl spot for Peter Berg‘s board game adaptation Battleship is kind of awesome. It looks like a big budget blockbuster of epic proportions.
I like that they reveal the aliens to be in suits and high tech armor opposed to the recent wave of slimy bugs. It looks like the special effects and action will be on a Transformers level, hopefully without the shit dialogue and lack of story development.
If there’s one film that could possibly kick-start the summer than it could possibly be Battleship. I just hope people don’t instantly dismiss it because of its title.
The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgard. It opens wide on May 18th, 2012.
