Normally, I avoid action and adventure movies like the plague. I am unashamedly a lover of comedy and chick flicks, and I’m totally okay with that. However, exceptions can be made when there are super hot guys in said action and adventure movies, and the upcoming Battleship has not only yummy Taylor Kitsch (you might know him from Friday Night Lights or X-Men Origins: Wolverine) but ALSO my all-time favorite vampire Alexander Skarsgard. Nom.
Based loosely on the classic board game Battleship, the movie is basically about a bunch of navy ships who accidentally stumble on an armada of alien ships and machines in the middle of training exercises. The aliens, known as the Regents, are hostile (duh, it’s a sci-fi film), and the rest of the movie is pretty much about everything getting blown to smithereens.
Watch for yourself:
Also starring Rihanna, complete with her badass shaved haircut, the lovely Brooklyn Decker, and the talented Liam Neeson, this is actually a movie I’m looking forward to seeing. And of course, because I’m a stalker and I can, I decided to see what the actors themselves had to say about the film. The inteviews in the video are pretty hilarious if you’ve got an extra ten minutes.
Are you sold? The movie comes out May 18th, so find me in the theater! I’ll be the one in the “I Love Eric” t-shirt.
