I want Battleship to be crazy, ridiculous, and (most importantly) fun.  Basically the Transformers experience with a higher ceiling.  I see that potential in the trailers we have seen so far, but there is no footage that cannot be made better by enthusiastic Japanese voiceover.  A Japanese trailer for Battleship hit the web over the weekend with new footage.  My optimism is not greater, but sustained at a high level. Paramount is billing the board game adaptation as "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."  Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson star in the Peter Berg-directed feature.  Battleship opens May 18, 2012.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer, plus a director's commentary on a previous trailer. Japanese trailer via Bleeding Cool:   IGN sat down with Berg to talk about the last Battleship trailer. »
