Peter Berg Confirms Aliens in "Battleship," and Much More!

Posted: December 2nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Peter Berg Confirms Aliens in "Battleship," and Much More!Submit Comment
It was recently leaked online that Peter Berg's "Battleship" movie, based on the popular board game, would feature the US Navy fighting aliens. It was a wild rumor at the time, but now, Berg has confirmed it. Several reporters got to sit down with the director, who revealed loads of information about the new movie. Here is a breakdown of what he said.

* The alien race is known as The Regents, who come from a planet with similar ecology as ours and have a similar biological make-up. They will be a combo of actors and CGI; Berg used Davey Jones from "Pirates of the Caribbean" as a reference point.

* The aliens are not on Earth to destroy us. They are instead trying to build something, because they are in need of a power source. They do not want to deal with the humans, but will kill if they have to. The aliens' mission will not be a secret in the movie.

* The aliens do not have advanced technology. While their boats fly down to Earth, once they hit water, they stay in the water. One of the ships gets damaged, which might be why the aliens cannot fly away.

* The ships look like giant water bugs, with giant legs that race across the surface of the sea.

* Some of the aliens are scientific and intelligent, while others are very violent. But they are all focused on fixing the mechanical problem with one of their ships.

* The hero of the film is the Commanding Officer of a destroyer, which is the main ship in the film. The hero has a team of five guys. They will be cut off from the rest of the world, but have a five ship fleet.

* Aspects of the game will be in the movie. The aliens will render the Navy's technology inoperable. Falling back on old school methods, the heroes will track and destroy the alien fleet through trial and error. Just like in the game.

* Since the movie is all about strategy, the aliens will not be unstoppable, but rather evenly matched with the Navy.

* The words "You sank my battleship" will be in the movie. Berg made sure of that.

* While the movie is set in modern day and features the newest naval technology, Berg will still use WWII elements. The Japanese will be mentioned and so will the USS Missouri, which fought during WWII.

* The reason Berg picked aliens to battle with, was because he didn't want to explain why the US Navy was at war with another country. He wanted something larger than life.

* Berg is thinking about shooting some sequences in 3D. "Battleship" will be in IMAX.

Hollywood is SOO f*cked.

I wish this "film" died a thousand deaths.

And it will. At least one. In the B.O. And that's where it hurts.

Maybe some day the idiot producers will die off? Selective breeding? Naa...

Strange that the words "The aliens do not have advanced technology." and "...their boats fly down to Earth" came out of Bergs mouth in the same blurb.

This sounds like a bad joke. It seems his only requirement in making this movie, is using the line ''you sunk my battle ship''. What a chump, must be using those poppers with Dandy.

So why are we trying to kill them? "The aliens are not on Earth to destroy us. They are instead trying to build something, because they are in need of a power source."

That makes humans sound like the bad guys. Maybe that's the point?? Though, there probably isn't a message like that in a movie based on a game.

Wow!! It's ID4 on the water!!! If they do it in 3-D, They should have ushers in the cinemas with buckets of water and when the action starts, the ushers can throw water on the viewers. This will make it a "4-D" experience and it should get people outta there so they won't have to eat too much of this sh*tburger.

Dandy is a person who goes by the name dandythelion on this site. He started to personally attack people. So he became the running joke. By the way he is a homo if you need proof his avatar is barbra streisand.

I'll bet every time a ship sinks in this movie, dandy will be trying to go down on another movie patron, as his homage.

Well, everybody wants an orginal Idea for a movie, and when one is finally being made, you ppl trash it. its not a remake, or a sequel. So give it a chance

Of course you like alien movies, they remind you of the anal probes.

So...the aliens can't leave earth, their ship gets damaged, they're not here to kill us, and some are intelligent while others are just violent. Basically this is District 9 with boats.

There's really no word in the dictionary (in the world) that can sum up this movie. I'll hereby invent one: schmögenfläysh. And if you thinkl that's hard to spell, spell DANDY instead.
