Poised for action, sporting their military getup and wielding two very big guns, Rihanna and Taylor Kitsch are highlighted in this new international poster for Peter Berg’s (The Kingdom, Hancock) upcoming summer blockbuster ‘Battleship.’ From what I’ve seen so far, I’m convinced that the best film to see drunk in 2012 is undoubtedly, unquestionably, beyond shadow of a doubt, unmistakably……‘Battleship.’ The film, a sci-fi/actioner that is loosely based on the popular Hasbro board game of the same name, stars Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Taylor Kitsch, Josh Pence and Rihanna. ‘Battleship’ is set for release April 11th in the UK and May 18th in the US.

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, 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. Based on Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancée; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane.

Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander) and Jeffrey Silver (300). The film is written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (Red). The battle for Earth begins at sea.
