In theory the upcoming Peter Berg movie Battleship is based on the board game of the same name. In practice, aside from using the board game’s font on the movie’s logo, it has absolutely nothing to do with that game of warring fleets. In fact, the new trailer sort of makes it clear that there isn’t even really a battleship fleet involved. Actually, it’s a three ships against the alien invasion movie.
Here’s the new, full trailer for Battleship which makes the movie look so much like Transformers you’d think it was directed by Michael Bay.
There you have it. More proof that aliens are the new Nazis. Battleship arrives in theaters May 18, 2012.
