The first official movie trailer of Battleship, the upcoming movie based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, has been unleashed online:
“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!
Directed by Peter Berg, the cast includes Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, Josh Pence, Jesse Plemons and Peter MacNicol. The Battleship movie will be released in theaters on May 18, 2012.
