Director Peter Berg did say Stephen Hawking influenced his take on the film:
“If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans. We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”
If there was an alien invasion: would God help us or the aliens? :?
Plot: “In the Hawaiian Islands, an international naval fleet at Pearl Harbor engage in a dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with the naval fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans’ so the audience knows exactly where the opponent’s ships are.”
And here’s another featurette that focuses on the U.S. Navy and the Marines:
Plot: “Peter Berg produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane.”

The battle for Earth begins at sea.
The release date of Battleship is set for May 18, 2012. :)
Plot: “The story follows an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as the Regents. The aliens come to planet Earth, on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.”
We also have a first teaser poster of Battleship:

The whole thing is a bit absurd, but I don’t mind: quite impatient to see this science-fiction film!

Director Peter berg is tackling the movie adaptation of Battleship, the famous board game. But it won’t be the Battleship you may expect: Peter Berg’s Battleship is about a few battleships battling against an alien invasion! The cast hasn’t been announced yet.
Director Peter Berg talked about the plot of Battleship the movie:
“There’s a group of life forms from some other planet have come to our planet for something. They’ve got a very specific agenda. That agenda is not global domination. It’s an agenda and that agenda puts them into conflict with members of our military. Their technology is relatable. It’s not incredibly far out and unbeatable. It’s comprehensible. Hopefully it’ll make for good fun and an intense ride.”
