well fiction is fiction i guess.

They really could have just used the "Battleship" as any ship equiped for war, but those big guns will rock the LFE. Maybe another woofer for the home theater will be justified.
From what I picked up on the trailer there was at least one of the boarding crew who will be inside the alien craft. The Stargate crew used to bring down mother ships from inside regularly so the human race will have a chance.

It's common knowledge that any act of human sabotage on an alien spacecraft, no matter how small, will result in the complete destruction of the whole ship as tiny explosions rumble, grow and spread through the entire craft until it's engulfed in flames and finally explodes in a really cool fireball. This procedure also works to destroy the high-tech lairs of megalomaniacs bent on ruling the world. Really, it's our ace in the hole.

I sure hope these alien spaceships are Apple-compatible, so we can re-use the old computer virus from Independence Day.

Mr Emmerick chose badly as usual

The PowerBook 5300 was Apple's first PowerBook based on a PowerPC CPU. Due to problems with the original (flaming) LithIon battery (which was recalled before it reached the consumer market), plastic chipping from the case, and poor performance (among other things), we label it a Compromised Mac. (It was also the butt of a lot of jokes.)

Hollywood just loves Apple products, especially the last decade or so, and frankly which model of that brand was used is irrelevant for most us non geeks.

But how bad the situation but they caused a "dead papaya" in terms of technique.
Less than a month away, "blockbuster" Battleship action fantasy starring singer Rihanna will officially offensive screen. Recently, Universal Pictures has released the 3rd trailer of this work, gives a comprehensive view of The alien invasion.




Whatever is produced by E-crew performance rivals Rihanna's Transformers, but with other characters in Battleship easy to make the audience relate to the visual character Cobra Commander in GI Joe 2 when masked to glorious veiled as ... helmet. However, striking orange of the bad guys forcing fans to remember the special Bumblebee Autobot team.








In addition, duration of Riri also appeared significantly reduced after the screen "fly back" constantly in the 2nd trailer. Instead, the manufacturer gives the viewer much more dramatic segments. Confrontation between the U.S. Navy with aliens sides between the sea is portrayed clearly than ever before. Not only that, the clip also means "show" is always the "dinosaurs" of the evil army with weapons - what makes people have a headache.









Short moments that Rihanna appeared on the trailer


Like previous works, the aliens immediately planned takeover of the earth. Not stopping at sea, they quickly offensive on land, broken up many tall buildings, causing people to panic. However, screen confrontation between the two ships near the end of the new trailer actually attract viewers, not the scene "abound" before.

Previously, the online community expressed skepticism about the likelihood of success of the Battleship. But this time, this is one of the main center is expected the first half of "catastrophic": "The video made ​​me completely change the earlier comments on this work", "A transformation Battleship spectacular eve broadcast. I am very eager to see this movie on the big screen "...












Battleship is done by director Peter Berg with the participation of the actors: Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Reila Aphrodite, Rihanna, Josh Pence, Peter MacNicol. The film will officially open in theaters in the U.S. on 04.11.2012. The audience will experience the breathtaking moments of life and death in "blockbuster" this on 20/04/2012.

Between the "dinosaurs" of the evil army with weapons - what makes people have a headache and A transformation Battleship spectacular eve broadcast, I'm sold. All I need now is to hear that someone dramatically shouts "You sunk my battleship" and I'll go to Amazon and preorder the bluray after buying my movie tickets.

Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.

My brain hurt just reading the thread title, so I didn't bother reading the rest.

Isn't this like the third thread Battleship has had now? IBTL!

Well, here are the "homages" to the game that instantly made me go "blech":

Quote:


Some elements from the Battleship board game were integrated into the film:

* The alien ships' missiles are shaped like the pegs from the board game and "sink" into the ship.
* The alien force field corresponds to the barrier between the sides of the board version of the game.
* The buoys form a grid similar to the board game's layout.
* The sailors use the hit or miss guessing method from the game.

Skyline may have been a dopey excuse to show off special effects, but at least it didn't pretend to be anything else.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!

How can anyone tell. All these films resemble those cheap plastic pacifiers your mom used to poke in your mouth when you were 6 months old. You were too stupid to know the difference between the one you almost swallowed and the new one that just came out of the drawer. You just kept sucking on them until you finally recognized food.

Whew! I thought it was just me. When watching the trailer some time back at the theater, the first thing I thought was, "Man, those graphics are a dead ringer for the ones in G.I. Joe." And I all know how we loved that movie.

And one more review:

http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/m...reviewed_.html

This one line sums it up, "After seeing it all I can remember is that it's about battleships, and is based on the board game Battleship, and is about a lot of ships that...battle."

"I am NOT suffering from insanity... I happen to be enjoying myself!"

"Universal’s Battleship took in an estimated $9 million from its 3,690 locations for a projected $26 million first weekend. Not only is that well below expectations for the pricey live-action boardgame, it’s also less than John Carter earned for its debut back in March. Draw your own conclusions."
