    Same happened when I saw the first TF announcement trailer (with the Mars Rover). Laughter insued when the word TRANSFORMERS appeared.

    I don't ever remember hearing laughter when I saw the announcement trailer. But I do remember myself thinking during the Mars stuff that it was going to be another War of the Worlds movie. My reaction to the title was like, ".........wait, what?"

    Yeah, I remember seeing the teaser and I thought to myself "Who the hell is going to see that..." and then I ended up seeing it 3 times in theaters.

    I saw the teaser in front of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. I agree it's very Transformers-esque; definitely looking forward to it.

    I didn't know about this movie, so I was surprised when I read the 'fine print' and saw Hasbro.

    So people. Everybody is crying that there is no TF4 being made in the near future. Well cry no more cause it's already here and it's called Battleship!!!!
    Check out the Super Bowl trailer and say that the robots in this movie doesn't look or sound anything like the Transformer robots!!
    So Michael Bay impressed everybody so much with the falling building that the Driller cut in half in DOTM, that they just had to do the same thing in Battleship!

    It hits the theaters in most of Europe between April 11th and April 20th. It hits the US on 18th of May!!

    I agree this doesn't look that... "fresh", but I really like Peter Berg, so I'm in on this.

    Now I see that the premiere for Europe has been moved 1 month earlier because of the Olympics. That's great news. It's just 2 months away.

    Eeeh, what the hell has the Olympics to do with a release date of a movie?
    The summer Olympics in London are during 27th of July-12th of August 2012, so it can't have nothing to do with the Olympics since it's gonna premiere in the US already on the 18th of May.

    Don't ask me. That's Universal's decision.

    From Deadline:

    Meanwhile, Universal recently made the decision to release the movie a month early overseas in April before it arrives in the U.S. and Canada in May so as to avoid competing with the international attention diverting to the London Olympics.
    By the way here is a really interesting article about the huge promotional campaign for the movie:

    You gotta love this! "Battleship, this sci-fi action adaptation of the Hasbro naval strategy board game"
    So the captain of the US warship is gonna go to his gunner and say "Fire on F2!!" Then the aliens respond "MISS!!"
    I mean, what the hell has this movie to do with the board game besides the name?

    Well for starters, the movie has battleships, both human and alien.

    Well what do ya know. There's a Battleship game coming in May. It combines naval strategy simulation with first-person shooter gameplay. Sounds interesting.

    Here's a great article where you can see what the board game looked like back in the days.
    As the article says, the movie sure doesn't look to have too much in common with the old board game besides that they both have battleships.

    If everything works out: 2013. Before the start of the summer season.

    If the enemy battleships were to be from some foreign country, you're going to run the risk of offending certain people.

    Therefore, aliens.

    Cool but why post it in three different threads.

    I hope the CG is not in such huge amounts as it is in this trailer. Makes it look like a game.
    I'm pretty surprised they won't release this in 3D. Lots of eye poping effects. It'll be great to see it in the good old 35mm film.
