We still have a few more weeks to wait to find out which “Battleship” castmember utters the immortal phrase “You sunk my Battleship!” So in the meantime, we’re offering up the exclusive premiere of a very special new clip from the film, along with the stars themselves, for “MTV First: Battleship.”
Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker will hit MTV’s airwaves Monday, April 30, at 7:56 p.m. ET to premiere the exclusive clip, after which they will stick around for a meaty 30 minutes of Q&A on MTV.com hosted by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. Fans can get in on the action immediately by submitting video or text questions via MTV.com or via Twitter (using @MTVNews, hashtag #MTVFirst or #AskBattleship). During “MTV First,” the four stars will also answer your Twitter questions and dish on the very latest news.
“Battleship” promises to be a true summer blockbuster in every way. It is an action-packed event movie with an A-list and very attractive cast.
“The movie is really the story of a younger brother (Kitsch) trying to grow up and be a man like [his older brother (Skarsgård)],” director Peter Berg told MTV News. “There just happens to be an alien invasion in the middle of it.”
The “Friday Night Lights” director also promised that despite the “Transformers” comparisons, his film is “completely different.”
“I think ‘Transformers’ is awesome,” Berg said. “I think [director Michael] Bay did an incredible job with that film and I think when you sit through 4 minutes of ‘Battleship,’ you’ll realize that they are two completely different experiences.
“Obviously, our big bosses who are concerned with making their money back have a vested interested in attaching themselves to other successful films. We don’t think about that; we think about making our own movie, and I’m pretty confident that whether you love ‘Battleship’ or not, the issue of comparison to other films is pretty irrelevant.”
The film hits theaters across the country May 18.
Don’t forget to join Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Alexander Skarsgård and Brooklyn Decker for “MTV First: Battleship” on Monday, April 30, at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV!
