Today saw the debut of a couple of new international marketing items for the upcoming Universal actioner Battleship of which everyone seems to have agreed we’re looking at what is essentially Transformers 4. So what does that mean? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
The Transformers franchise is something the online chorus seems to agree isn’t very good. That said, does it look like Battleship meets, exceeds or falls below what what the Transformers franchise has achieved? I’m not sure if the following trailer will convince you one way or another, but I’m pretty sure the poster (via Allocine) won’t encourage many.
Have a look at both below. Battleship hits theaters on May 18 and is directed by Peter Berg and stars Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, Josh Pence and Tom Arnold. For more on the film click here.
