Synopsis

"You sunk my Battleship!" The legendary game becomes a movie but the opponent is not what you would expect. The crew of a U.S. battleship finds what appears to be the first sign of alien life on Earth but before they can investigate monstrous machines and mechanical weapons begin attacking -- first by sea and then by land.

Savvy moviegoers may notice a resemblance between this movie’s special effects and those found in the Transformer film. The reason may be that both productions have connections to the Hasbro Toy Company.

Battling aliens is not new to several of the actors in this movie. Taylor Kitsch took on Martians in John Carter and Liam Neeson was a Jedi Knight in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

Hopefully this will be a good movie. It’s based on a board game, for pete’s sake! How do you ruin a board game?
