Stick this in the ‘WTF?’ files. We were as baffled as everybody else at the announcement of the adaptation of the Milton Bradley board game Battleship into a major motion picture from Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Hancock). Now Universal has released a trailer and poster for the film, and we are as surprised as anybody at the direction it has taken.
Is it a Michael Bay-style war film? A Michael Bay-style alien invasion film? It could literally go anywhere!
All we need now is those Ouija and Ridley Scott’s Monopoly trailers.
