So they paid money just so they could call that movie Battleship? Because I find it hard to believe they went to someone with the idea of writing a movie influenced by the boardgame and THAT is what came to mind.

Your boardgame doesn't have aliens in it?

They are probably trying to tie in 2 games. Classic Battleship and the new one: Battleship: Galaxies, which is actually a pretty cool game. I have that one myself.

That trailer is 2 minutes of earthlings getting their butts kicked. I'm curious how they are going to turn the tide in the end. But not curious enough to go see that movie.

It will probably have the same stupid victory condition that if you kill the "queen" the rest will die.  Somehow they'll kill that damn queen.

Good.

At least they're not f***ing with something I actually CARED about.

In the interests of figuring out combat, battleships attack at surface level and above.

These aliens are submerged.

Would the unprotected hulls not be a better target? You know, for technoterrors that can exist underwater and launch bombs that roll around and chop up helicopters with their metal tails?

Also, the studio announced a Connect-Four game is in the works.

The tie-in is with Angry Birds, so you know it's going to take place near a casino, and an experimental gene-altering-aviary built in an old elastic factory.

This movie is gonna be a stank-bomb released in theaters come May. Thousands of people will suffocate in the mega-fart from studio execs that will blow from the screens. I've not seen such a cynical Hollywood blockbuster misfire attempt in my entire life. So many heads are gonna roll when this fails it ain't gonna be funny, but well-deserved.

Never played it.

Or tiddly-winks, though I've heard OF both.

Perhaps they could get Helena Bonham Carter and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as headliners for Guess Who? the movie.

Either Battleship and John Carter are going to finally Turn Taylor Kitsch into a Movie Star, or they're going to once and for all render him a Friday Night Lights trivia question. smirk Although I suppose an X-Men Gambit spinoff is his Plan B.

Speaking of FNL trivia, director Peter Berg directed that, and the TV series' pilot. Although the only thing in his filmography that hints why he was given $200M for a "boardgame movie" is Hancock.

I am surprised, even just based on the trailers, that Michael Bay isn't suing the movie's producers for Battleship's sheer, baldfaced Michael Bay-ness and Transformers-ness.

Although Battleship screams "bad idea!" and "career killer!" to me, it's got an extremely prime early summer release date (May 18), and studios theoretically (see Green Lantern) don't give those slots out to a $200M production unless they're truly confident in it. As to whether opening 2 weeks after The Avengers and a week before Men In Black III (http://www.movieinsider.com/movies/may/2012/) is a good idea, only time will tell...

I'm definitely watching this on Netflix when it shows up, looks like a fun stupid action movie.

Anyone else think of Crysis 1 and 2 when they saw the trailer and the Alien power suits?

I suspect any movie based on that series would share a lot of similarities with this one.
