New ‘Battleship’ Featurette Explains The “Story” For Us

'Battleship'
Universal Pictures

Who’s ready for an intergalactic battle off the shores of Hawaii? Or at least morbidly curious as to how they plan to turn a board game into a movie? Universal Pictures thinks you are and they’ve released their brand new featurette about how the hostile aliens came to land on our planet in ‘Battleship.’

It’s always neat to see the story pieces form together on the big screen without any previous spoilers shown to you on a behind-the-scenes video, but every once in awhile you need a featurette like this one to pop up that way the audience gets a better grasp at what they should expect. Then again, it’s not that hard to figure out what exactly you’re going into when you walk into a movie theater to see a film based off of a Hasbro board game.

Peter Berg (‘Hancock’) is directing the sci-fi summer tentpole movie with a large cast that includes Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Rihanna and Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd.

We follow the headstrong Alex Hopper (Kitsch), a young navy man who has everything in the world, including one attractive girlfriend (Decker). His world quickly gets turned upside down when a simple series of navy games is interrupted by a fleet of extraterrestrials who want nothing more than to take over the planet and eliminate anything that gets in their way.

Watch the featurette presented by SFX for ‘Battleship’ below, and don’t forget that the movie will be out in theaters on May 18, 2012.
