When you look at the artwork above, you might think "Hmm, is that from the recent movie 'Battleship'?" And that's exactly what Asylum Entertainment wanted you to think. The company often produces low-budget knock-offs of upcoming Hollywood properties (along with cheap horror and skin flicks). But to make matters easier for consumers, Universal sued them to change the name of their film 'American Battleship.' And Universal won.
