While we still have to wait a bit for Peter Berg's watery explosion fest known as "Battleship," the board game movie actually starts opening up internationally next week and thanks to Japan and Russia, a few more peeks at the movie have made their way online.
First up, over at Yahoo Japan (via Latino Review) a clip has arrived showing us a look at the barbed wire metal ball space thingies that are part of the alien invasion (or whatever) that the Naval forces must face in "Battleship." While we still think the concept is a bit ludicrous, it can't be denied that Peter Berg is meeting summer blockbuster expectations head on here. Things explode big and loud as they should, and when we hear the grunt utter "Oh shit," it's not long before we fully understand just how deadly this assault is.
Meanwhile, Russian site Kinopoisk has unveiled a few new pics, mostly of Brooklyn Decker and Alexander Skarsgård, so a little bit of eye candy for both the dudes and the ladies. And as a final treat, we've included the Berg-directed Coca-Cola tie-in ad for the movie that Deadline picked up. It's...interesting....
"Battleship" opens internationally on April 11th and in the U.S. on May 18th.
