Film trailer: Liam Neeson in 'Battleship'The second trailer for Battleship, an epic sci-fi action film, was released December 9, showing the battle scenes.

Based on Hasbro’s classic naval board game Battleship, the film is about a fleet of military ships that encounter spaceships in the sea as the Transformer-like vessels attack earth.

By director Peter Berg (Hancock), this epic sci-fi action film stars Taylor Kitsch (X-Men: Wolverine), who will play the lead in the upcoming John Carter, another sci-fi action film due in March, as well as Alexander Skarsgard (Melancholia), model Brooklyn Decker, pop singer Rihanna, and Liam Neeson (Clash of the Titans).

The footage shows sailors investigating a mysterious object in the water. As they move in for a close-up, a monstrous battleship from space emerges from the depths to attack earth and the fleet, seemingly no match for the invaders.

Battleship opens April 18-20 internationally followed by North America a month later on May 18, 2012. — AFP RELAXNEWs
