Battleship is an upcoming 2012 Fantasy, naval war film based on the Hasbro game of the same name. The film is being directed by Peter Berg and will be released by Universal Pictures. Starring in the film are Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna and Liam Neeson.
The film was originally planned to be released in 2011, but rescheduled to May 18, 2012





A story of 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' so the audience knows exactly where the opponent's ships are.

The estimated US$200 million project was to begin filming in Australia's Gold Coast in 2010, but the production company changed locale due to a lack of Australian government tax incentives.

Filming is taking place in the United States on the Hawaiian islands of Maui and Oahu, as well as in Sherman Oaks, California to do a few apartment scenes and in Playa del Rey, California where they will film a driving scene along with a shootout.[10] Battleship will also be filmed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States. The Science & Entertainment Exchange provided science consultation for the film.[

All Hands on
Let’s get some things straight. A movie based on a board game sounds theoretically stupid and honestly, I have to wonder what the filmmakers behind the 2012 film “Battleship” were thinking when they decided to make a film out of the concept of a board game. Ok, the game was fun in its own way, but obviously this movie was meant as a marketing ploy to sell a new video game or maybe re-launch the Hasbro board game. So if you are expecting something special and creative, then it would …

         By Joan Alperin Schwartz   'Battleship' directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) has a poorly constructed script, ridiculous dialogue, cardboard charcters and it's really, really loud.        It does have bad ass aliens and some exciting visual effects, but that is not enough to save this $200,000,000 fiasco.      When the film opens, we find out that a group of …

No doubt when people heard they were coming out with a movie based on the board game Battleship there were a lot of eye rolls and heavy sighs. Director Peter Berg of Friday Night Lights fame and the writing team of Jon and Erich Hoeber, who also wrote the Bruce Willis movie Red, heard the heavy sighs and decided to roll with it. If people are already going into this movie thinking it is going to be ridiculous then why not just go full tilt. Battleship is an overly computer …

Star Rating:         Peter Berg’s Battleship is better than the Transformers trilogy in the same way that having a cold is better than having the flu. And yet it’s very much cut from the same cloth as Transformers, not just because both feature outer space robots but also because both are noisy, thoughtlessly inundated with action and special effects, and generally free from any semblance of plot, character development, or theme. I guess one should expect …

There is More Entertainment Playing the Game Than in Watching the Movie
Basing a movie off of a videogame is often a risky proposition. For every “Resident Evil”, there at least a dozen others that are out and out disasters, “Mario Brothers”, “Wing Commander”, and “Double Dragon” are a few examples of how not to do it. While Hollywood shows no signs of stopping videogame adaptations anytime soon, game development companies are becoming more savvy with allowing their products to become movies and are requiring uality …
