Oh, Battleship. The “hey-this-is-just-how-Michael-Bay-makes-‘em-right?” potential blockbuster has the unfortunate duty of opening in the wake of The Avengers’ May release, and features a Transformers-like premise without any actual Transformers, just keeps dropping new clips and ads, and yet still looks like a bland rehash of everything from Pearl Harbor to Battle: Los Angeles. Today, we’ve got a new clip featuring a bar-hopping Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgard. Let the unnaturally orange skin tones begin!
The film, directed by Peter Berg, is the story of how the U.S. Navy must do battle with invading aliens from an Earth-like planet, and is an adaptation of the Hasbro naval combat game that featured neither invading aliens nor any other Earth-like planets. So go figure that out.
In the film, it’s up to a group of bizarrely young and attractive naval officers to defend planet Earth against the conquest of the extraterrestrials, armed only with naval ships and catch phrases such “B-9!” and “A-17!” and “YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!” (ok, I can’t guarantee that last part about the catch phrases is true). But yeah: big naval battleships and some alien space ships, lots of orange skin, copious CGI, and a bunch of things going boom-boom. For those of you needing a Michael Bay fix this summer, this is as good as it’s gonna get for you.
What do you think of the clip?
