The first teaser trailer for "Battleship" has been debuted via Yahoo! Movies and it tries to get moviegoers prepared for a big war. Lovey-dovey Lt. Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) and Sam Shane (Brooklyn Decker) open the preview, but they have to stay away for a while when Hopper is assigned to the USS John Paul Jones by Liam Neeson's Admiral Shane, who happens to be Sam's father.
Hopper's older brother Stone, portrayed by Alexander Skarsgard, is the Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson. When the ship's crew notice mysterious thing floating on the sea, they send a small group to come closer and investigate it, which soon attacks the battleship and unveils its true, huge form.
The battleship is set to use all the weapons it has to fight the spaceship, but the real war will unfold across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.
Based on the Hasbro board game, "Battleship" is directed by Peter Berg and is due May 18, 2012 in the U.S. Added to the already star-studded cast ensemble is Rihanna, who stars as Petty Officer Raikes, a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones.
