As skeptical as I may have been when I first heard about the “Battleship” movie (yes, even with Peter Berg directing and a bevy of beautiful people in the cast) I have started to feel a little excitement for the film over the past few months, thanks in large part to brief encounters with cast members Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard and Josh Pence.
My latest cast member encounter has solidified things, however, in that Taylor Kitsch has promised bad ass aliens and refused to confirm or deny the existence of a “You sunk my Battleship!” line of dialogue (which, in my opinion, means it’s totally in the movie).
“Will you get to see the aliens? F— yeah. Why would we put aliens in and not show you?” Kitsch said during the press day for his upcoming film, “The Bang Bang Club.” “This is a different movie entirely than the other [alien] ones you’ve seen.”
When asked how the “Battleship” aliens compare to those we’ve seen in films before, Kitsch said we won’t be disappointed.
“These are bad ass… I can’t tell you, I wanna give you more [details],” he said, stopping himself short of revealing spoilers. “We have brilliant cats doing [the alien special effects] and I’ve seen a good cut of that already.”
“It’s exciting. Pete Berg, man,” he enthused, speaking highly of the director he previously worked with on “Friday Night Lights.”
And the question we’re all dying to have answered: Does someone say, “You sunk my battleship!” in the movie?
“Ah I can’t tell you that,” he laughed. “There’s no way I’d tell you that!”
