Alexander Skarsgard Photos Battleship Meet Greet in Japan

Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, and Brooklyn Decker visited Sailors and their families Commander Fleet Activities Yosuka (CFAY) during a meet and greet for Battleship. Event was held at Benny Theater on 4/2/2012.

Director Peter Burg and actors Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna and Tadanobu Asano met with Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Capt. David A. Owen, participated in a question and answer forum and took photos with the Sailors.

[box] Singer and actress Rihanna said working and learning from Sailors during her time making the film was a humbling experience. “It was really special having a lot of real Navy Sailors and veterans help us make the film,” said Rihanna. “We could never stand up to half of what you guys are. We look up to you guys so much, and I have so much respect for you guys.” Owen said he appreciated the stars taking the time to come and visit the forward-deployed Sailors. “It’s always great when we can get celebrities over here, and these are some really awesome individuals,” said Owen. “Sailors have been talking about this for the past couple weeks, and I hope they know just how much this means to them.” [/box]

[box] The feeling of deep appreciation for the struggles and sacrifices of the Navy’s forward-deployed forces resonated throughout the entire cast. “I’m always interested in supporting the military,” said Burg. “I love and have so much respect for everybody in the military, particularly the Navy and their families, and we all understand the sacrifices that you guys make.” After the event at the base theater, the stars visited the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN-73), and took a tour of the ship while visiting with the crew. “To come all the way over here and meet so many Americans that have made such great sacrifices – it’s humbling,” said Burg. “All of us got emotional flying in here on the helicopter.” “This movie was made for you guys,” said Decker. “Keep up the hard work.” [/box]

Alexander Skarsgard Photos WonderCon Battleship Panel


Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker and Peter Berg attended the Battleship panel at WonderCon 2012. They showed a new trailer that featured more of Alexander Skarsgard’s character of Stone Hopper interacting with his on screen brother Taylor Kitsch. The trailer shows the brothers at a bar celebrating Kitsch’s birthday and big brother Stone is buying him drinks. (complete with a celebratory birthday cupcake). Kitsch sees Brooklyn at the bar and of course makes a wish for her. He is unemployed and big brother Stone is in the Navy. We learn that Stone is following in their father’s footsteps and looks out for his younger brother.

Kitsch does his best to impress Brooklyn in the bar and winds up trying to procure a chicken burrito for the hungry beauty.  He goes to great lengths to obtain the burrito and it was quite a comical scene. The next trailer shown has a time jump of five  years into the future and Kitsch is now in the Navy and has really cleaned up his act. The second trailer also featured some of the action showing Rihanna in her acting debut.

Alexander Skarsgard Video Talks True Blood and Chris Meloni

Alexander Skarsgard and Peter Berg sat with MTV and talked a bit about Battleship and True Blood. On the new cast member to join True Blood -Christopher Meloni, Alex says “he’s a great guy”.

[box] “I was a fan of ‘True Blood’ [and] all the girls in the office stormed my office and demanded that we cast him,” Peter said of offering the role to the Swede. Of course, with the topic of “True Blood” on the table, I had to ask Alex for any and all hints about the upcoming season, set to debut this summer.

According to the hunk, the cast is currently filming episode four of the fifth season, and if you’ve been following casting announcements, you know a brand-new big-bad will storm Bon Temps this season: “Law & Order: SVU” star Christopher Meloni.

“He’s really, really good,” Alex enthused of new co-star Chris. “And a great guy.” As to whether we’ll be seeing the newbie predominately shirtless, Alex would only say, “Maybe, maybe not,” cheekily adding, “He’s so hot.”[/box]
