A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.
After much talk and anticipation, we finally get a chance to see the first trailer and poster for Battleship, the upcoming film adaptation of the popular Hasboro board game. The official site is online now as well.
Universal Pictures has revealed the first look at the action-adventure that takes place on the high seas, in the skies, and on land – it’s everywhere!
The planet fights for survival against a superior force and it’s up to Hopper (Taylor Kitsch), a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones to help end the threat.
Brooklyn Decker stars as Hopper’s fiance, Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper’s older brother, Commanding Officer Stone; Rihanna plays Lt. Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate; and Liam Neeson plays Hopper’s superior, Admiral Shane.
Battleship is set to hit theaters on May 18, 2012.
