Of course we haven’t seen it yet, but it seems fair to predict that Battleship is going to be big, brash, silly fun at best. The latest teaser-featurette is very much in that vein, fleshing out a back story about sending signals to other planets that seem capable of supporting life and an alien scouting party coming to see whether our planet might be hospitable for them.

The majority of the footage from the film is pretty familiar, with the usual dose of ships, aliens, things going boom and the like all present and correct. Though do stick it through to the end for one exchange that at least tries to go against the grain of the absurd sound-bites that tend to punctuate (and puncture) this sort of film:-

“Let’s see if we can buy the world another day”

“Who really talks like that?”
