I don’t… uh… I don’t even know what I just saw. The new trailer for Battleship, Peter Berg’s adaptation of the eponymous board game, went live on iTunes today, and /Film now has an embeddable YouTube version up.
Yes. You saw that, too, right?
Usually this is the point where I would try to do a quick blow-by-blow rundown of the trailer, but I honestly can’t even begin to comprehend what is going on in this trailer. Aliens from the sea make a kind of invisible arena to battle the Navy in. Spinning balls of mechanical death destroy just all kinds of stuff.
I dunno. Hit the comments. You tell me. This could either be some kind of mad genius piece of cinematic madness, or it could be just a normal piece of madness. The kind that isn’t fun.
We’ll know on May 18, 2012
