Here at the Major Spoilers HQ we’ve been curious how a movie based on the board game Battleship would turn out.  Today we get our first look at the trailer for the movie that arrives April 20, 2012.

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

  1. Movie industry today: get a title that ring a bell when people ear or read it, any title/name will do. Film stuff, then assemble those scenes together to have a lump of scenes to do a trailer about. Now run the trailer to get people into the theater to watch the mash up of scenes your have aggregated to make a trailer about.

  2. Gambit. Eric Norseman. Ra’s Al Ghul. Oh yeah. And Rihanna.

    I’ll see it.

    I just want to know how they asked “How do we even make a Battleship movie? Oh, wait I know . . . with aliens!”

  3. Looks like the Movie Trailers that “Robot Chicken” did, although can’t remember the season that that movie, Hungry,Hungry Hippos, and Chutes and Ladders aired.

  4. Hasbro: “For the right price, we will open up our toy lines for movie adaptations! Paramount…you get Transformers and GI Joe. Oooo sorry, good luck making a film about those…you’ll figure something out.”

    Paramount: “sheesh!”

    Hasbro: “Annnnd Universal…you get everything else in the Hasbro catalog…we recommend battleship, boggle, and Lite Brite for starters!

    Universal: “Sweet…its a deal!”

  5. Seems to me like Peter Berg is trying to cash in on Michael Bay’s fan base. “It doesn’t need to make sense so long as there are fancy explosions, aliens, and at least one respectable actor involved.”
