Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on Hasbro's classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane.

Some action fans like gritty war movies, and some like slick, sci-fi thrillers. Why not have both in one explosive combination?


  • 1It's from director Peter Berg, who made the movie and TV versions of "Friday Night Lights," and he brought along Tim Riggins himself (aka Taylor Kitsch).
  • 2This is the feature film debut of Rihanna, who trades in her glamorous stage outfits and her umbrella-ella-ella, for a Navy uniform and a machine gun.
  • 3When you were playing the board game as a kid, did you ever imagine you were actually up against a fleet of marauding alien invaders? Well, your wish has been granted.



Kitsch's character, Lt. Alex Hopper, serves aboard the USS John Paul Jones, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer. In reality, the ship has seen actual combat, launching the first tomahawk missiles into Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001. It is named after the Revolutionary War hero, and not, as some would have you believe, the bassist for Led Zepplin.
