New Battleship Film Poster


A huge thank you to Universal Pictures for sending over the great poster and image for Peter Berg’s film “Battleship”. (I should have checked my email earlier).


Here is the synopsis for the film which will feature True Blood’s Viking Vampire-Alexander Skarsgard as Stone Hopper.


Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane.

Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander).

Brooklyn Decker Chats About Battleship Film


Moviehole.net caught up with Brooklyn Decker while she was in Brisbane cheering on her tennis pro husband  Andy Roddick. Brooklyn has the role of Sam in the film “Battleship”.

When asked about the film she had the following to say to Moviehole.net

Says Decker, “We will do reshoots. We have shot a bunch of alternate endings. There’s a lot of CGI to be done – a lot of stuff in post.”

re: reshoots: “Yes, depending on the storyline and where they want to take it we might be doing some reshoots”, explains the cordial actress.

The picture, which pits the crew of a fleet of ships against a supernatural entity, was directed by actor cum filmmaker Peter Berg.

“He was amazing. We agreed on nearly everything. It’s great when you’re on the same page”,“He is great – and he’s especially great with new actors. He loves it that there’s no ego to protect and we’re all just in there having fun and working together.”

Universal Studios has a lot riding on this high budget film. Battleship is the first of three Hasbro movie themed films. It will be followed by Ouija and Rob Letterman’s Stretch Armstrong which will feature Taylor Lautner. (The film Stretch Armstrong is currently in development/script stage and shows a  tentative 2013 release date).


There is a lot of buzz/worry concerning the film Battleship which also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna. Adding to the worries are these comments by Decker on “reshoots”. Usually that is code in film code  for the movie “doesn’t work”. Hopefully in this case it does not mean that and the film will be amazing. (but yes quite a few fans have expressed concern over Alex’s participation in this film).

Having James Cameron publicly criticized the production of the film Battleship when he spoke with the German publication Speigel Online has also added fuel to the fire. Here is what Mr. Cameron had to say:

We have a story crisis.  Now they want to make the Battleship game into a film.  This is pure desperation.”

“Everyone in Hollywood knows how important it is that a film is a brand before it hit theaters. If a brand has been around, Harry Potter for example, or Spider-Man, you are light years ahead. And there lies the problem. Because unfortunately these franchises are become more ridiculous. Battleship. This degrades the cinema.”

I know I am still holding onto hope and will await to see just what Peter Berg has in store for us when the film is released in May of 2012.
