After the release of The Cold Light of Day in April up next is action movie Battleship.
Synopsis: A fleet of ships are forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.
Based upon the classic grid based Hasbro game and directed by Peter Berg (Collateral), Battleship is making waves across the movie universe.
Boasting the presence of Liam Neeson is also a good thing and with Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) and singer Rihanna in support, it seems they are hoping to draw in the crowds.
The trailer makes the film seem a lot like the Transformers movies, which means it’s probably going to be big, loud and boisterous fun and the promotion is using the links to Hasbro as a strong ploy. Don’t expect it to be too serious, if its high octane explosive action you are after then this is the movie for you this April.
Battleship is released in the UK 11th April and a day later in Australia. Fans in the US will have to wait until May 18th. Released two days later is The Cabin in the Woods.
