In it's neverending quest to mine old franchises for movie scripts, Hollywood has seen fit to make a movie based on the game Battleship. The only thing I know about this film is the footage I have seen in this trailer. The one thing I don't remember from playing Battleship as a kid were the giant alien ships. Perhaps we were the giant aliens, mercilessly destroying the human naval ships for fun. Or we were trying to take over the planet for any number of reasons. I honestly can't understand why the money was spent to make this movie, and why Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard agreed to be in it.
