Another alien invasion movie? How boring, how about sending in the Space Cruiser Yamato! Anyhow another mighty gaijin movie, PU!

No battleships in service anymore - using an aircraft carrier for this event. Yeah, I'll pass on a movie inspired by a board game, not even worth renting. Perfect to watch while half-a-sleep on a long flight when you've watched the other 2 movies you are interested in.

If it wasn't for Jonathan Schaeffer and Chinook my script "Checkers: The Quest to be Crowned" would have already become a blockbuster international hit...

Saw the previews, yes there is at least one Iowa battleship. Lots of American warships being blown up, might be worthwhile to watch after all. Just kidding

I don't know what game director and writers of this movie were playing, but I certainly don't remember robotic aliens when playing Battleship as a kid.

Makes me understand how Americans really love war movies and also real wars.

This looks like a cracking movie. I'll be going to see it.

Anybody know why it's being released in Japan before the USA? A most unusual situation.

When is "Hungry Hungry Hippo" gonna come out?

@Kwatt - this movie is about aliens - like from outer space, not from Earth and so on, so would be best be described as a science fiction movie. Movies are made for one purpose - putting butts in $eat$ and $elling popcorn. Science fiction, action & war movies and their ilk are escapist in nature and can be quite entertaining by putting people in extreme situations, though I doubt this one is.

Something is missing from this picture that is annoying me. I can't help thinking there should be something like a self congratualy banner stretched above the number 73. "Mission well done" or something.

GW...well, it's my own fault really. I did make an exceptionally provocative statement about wanting to see the film this site has been paid to plug.

This looks interesting.

Love movies. They help me forget (at least for a little while) that I live in the radioactive hot spot of Kashiwa, work at a dead end job that I can't stand with people I just can't help but ridicule, have to pay off a huge mortgage that I'll probably never be able to do on a place that'll probably never be able to sell and that I am stuck married to a Japanese woman who is a lunatic (on and off meds for anger issues) who no longer the bikini wearing nympho (wish she was Brooklyn Decker) I married all those years ago.

Battleship take me away before I start on on one of my bitter anti-Japan rants again.

Yeah another mighty hollywood movie. At least the west can make a half decent movie unlike the dribble that this country produces. About the only thing good about Japanese movies and T.V is..... Hmm there is nothing good never mind.

How about we add that the actual picture is showing some actual sailors, that are actually hero's!

Being as how I got to go home early today thanks to the "typhoon," heh heh, I just watched the official trailer - oh good grief, looks like a bunch of obvious CG.

Warning, Spoiler Alert

The bad guys aren't aliens blowing up ships; they're Obama and Congress killing us with budget cuts... >: (

Another American movie featuring the U.S. military. I hope they lose this time, but not betting on it. Hollywood propaganda does not really work that way.

In the sense that baseball players are also heroes? Sure.

But in my book, you actually have to do something to be an actual hero. I am pretty sick of the word being so randomly thrown about, especially to people who signed up for a paycheck rather than to actually defend their country when it needed defending, as it certainly does not need defending right now.

cactusjack, I'm waiting for Electronic Football - in 3D!

MustardKing, As free as you are to make a comment of such proportion, be mindful who gave you the right to make that opinion. If everyone could sign up just for a paycheck, I think more than the eligible 1% would actually do it then.

And no, not in the sense of a baseball player is a hero. I don't consider them heroes.. maybe a role model, but certainly not a hero.

Police, Firemen, and Military=Hero.
