    They must be playing the the new ultra-deluxe alien version of Battleship.
    Slightly more intrigued about this film riding the lucrative coat tails of the Transformers franchise, but I still will not be seeing it, in theaters at least.

    As for the “more or less” question. Id answer “less”. The only thing that would make this steaming pile any easier to swallow would be the appearance of Optimus Prime from beneath the ocean to save the day. Being that I was listening to his “signature transformation sound” throughout the entire trailer, maybe it isnt just a pipe dream, and he’ll have a cameo. Also, when trying to sell me on a movie that Ill refuse to see, perhaps they could focus more on slow mo scenes inolving Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker, instead of the knock off shockwave bot that so cleverly disarmed a helicopter. If this even makes a remotely successful take at the theater, I will buy the DVD at full price as punishment.

    This looks like one of those scripts that has wondering around in search of a franchise. I’ll pass.

    So, this is not a Michal Bay film? Cause all I saw was lens flair, “Transformer” technology, buildings falling, and the like. I’m probably gonna wait this one out.

    A: What the hell does THAT steaming pile have to do with the game Battleship? Oh, wait, it has boats in it. But then again, so did Gilligan’s Island. BAD IDEA!
    B: Haven’t we already SEEN this movie only with spaceships instead of watercraft and fighter jets instead of battleships, and Jeff Goldblum instead of whoever that fellow is on screen. Oh, and by the way, a destroyer is NOT a battleship, Mr. Producer. If you are going to name a movie Battleship, you should at least put Battleships in it.
    C: You do realize that the trailer has already shown us every good bit in the movies. So why bother going to see it?
    D: Why does this trailer remind me of the trailer for the last Star Trek movie?

    I’m going to give this the old Harold and Kumar and say it looks like it’ll be more along the lines of Battles#!t$.
