Back a few months ago when I shared the teaser clip for Universal Pictures “Battleship”, I wasn’t sure what to make of it because after all it’s an action meets Science Fiction feature named after a popular board game (that was discussed HERE in case you missed it). The second trailer just recently made its appearance and let’s get right on down to enjoying that along with the basic premise and ensemble casting. I’ve even added in a poster to keep this more interesting.
Plot: A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I will admit that this trailer made me a little more interested in the film since it feels like a cross between what we found going on in “Independence Day” so long ago and “The Transformers”. I don’t get to the movie theater all that much outside of the occasional Marvel comics film though but let’s see what I feel like when this actually opens up next Summer. What did you think about this one? Chime in down below because since you can comment on blog posts it’s a lot of fun knowing you are all out there. See you again soon for sure.
