We're still not quite sure how the folks behind the upcoming board-game-made-movie Battleship managed to take a simple exercise in naval geometry and turn it into a story about U.S. military personnel battling a horde of water-borne alien invaders ... but director Peter Berg is making sure the sinking of battleships at least looks pretty, if these new production stills are to be believed.
Unfortunately, we only get one look at the alien menace that's at the center of the film's conflict, but it's not bad, as peeks go, featuring a metallic, almost insectoid vessel seemingly exploding out of the water. The rest of the pics are shots of the cast, including Friday Night Lights' Taylor Kitsch as the hunky protagonist, Liam Neeson as the stern (naturally) older officer, and the lovely Brooklyn Decker as the love interest ... plus, Rihanna firing a very large gun.
What do you think? Do these new shots make you think Battleship can overcome its shaky premise and deliver naval thrills, or are you starting to get that sinking feeling?
