Universal Pictures has uncovered a fresh trailer for its upcoming quarter-billion-dollar movie, "Battleship". In addition to presenting stunning special effects that will be featured in the film, the new sneak peek highlights more massive destruction scenes as the Earth is at war against fearsome robotic alien race. A better look at the villainous alien itself is also provided in the footage.
The apocalyptic action movie centers on an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as the Earth fights for survival against a superior force. It follows an international naval fleet at Pearl Harbor which engages in an intense battle against an alien race known as "The Refents".
Based on Hasbro's classic naval combat game, "Battleship" is supported by a number of notable stars such as Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker and R&B sensation Rihanna. Tackling the directorial duty is Peter Berg with scribe duo Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber penning the script.
The movie is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. theaters on May 18.
