Peter Berg narrates Battleship featurette flooded with new alien footage

Poor Earth. Seems everybody wants to kick our planet's ass these days. Battleship enters the tsunami of invasion-oriented offerings with a furious extended clip sizing up the predator's plans with plenty of gargantuan guns and gusto. The epic success of recent console games like Mass Effect 3 and Call of Duty: MW3 should catapult this Milton Bradley-based bonanza toward limited, if not buoyant, success when it launches later this spring. Director Peter Berg seems to have produced an engulfing spectacle with a sly grin on its lips, full of familiar faces and full-bore firepower aimed at armored alien commandos storming our cities by air, land and sea. Will the insanity ever stop?! Not as long as cash registers ring loud and clear. Battleship's capable crew includes Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Asano Tadanobu and Liam Neeson. It's anchors aweigh May 18. (Via Latino Review)
