Before The Lone Ranger and After Earth, the big fanboy whipping boy was Battleship. We’ve covered the film extensively here on TGD, and like The Lone Ranger, it was one of those projects that was seemingly doomed from the get-go. It also infuriated fans because it ate up so much money at Universal, there was nothing left to potentially make Guillermo Del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness, or The Dark Tower movie series.
The Blu-ray of the boardgame adaptation is out now, and has plenty of extras for fans of naval tech.
This clip from the Battleship Blu-ray special features is a TG Daily exclusive.
Whenever someone says they’re tried of genre remakes and reboots, it’s definitely preaching to the converted, but what can any of us do?
Sometime back before Battleship sank to the bottom of the deep ocean, we wrote a number of reports for TG about Hasbro's deal with Universal to make a bunch of movies out of video games.
We all knew from the tracking reports that The Avengers would be a big movie, but the film has actually been insanely successful.
As bad as the economy's been lately, and as much as there are a lot of people who need a gig, I'm really quite thankful I don't work at Universal.
It’s been quite a blockbuster summer so far at the movies, with ginormous hits like The Avengers, and big flops like Battleship.
Guillermo del Toro's name is attached to so many projects these days, you'd think the famous Kevin Bacon movie game is about to be renamed Six Degrees of del Toro.
Whenever someone drops a bomb, there's usually fall out. When John Carter tanked, the chairman of Disney got the boot, and who knows what the long-term repercussions over Battleship are going to be at Universal.
As you read often here on TG, everyone loves to be an armchair quarterback when it comes to genre movies.
We're not even halfway through the year and already the second biggest cliffhanger at the box office is over.
It must have been an anxiety filled year for Taylor Kitsch.
Science fiction and horror fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Prometheus, which is slated to hit theaters on June 8.
This year we already saw a colossal flop at the box office, John Carter, and there were of course many who were predicting it was going to fail for months.
Hasbro has released a bevy of clips for its upcoming board-game based alien invasion action film Battleship.
If you were around in the 1970’s, you may recall there was a lot of anger near the close of the decade when a lot of movies were going over budget.
Along with John Carter, the other big cliffhanger at the box office this year will be Battleship, the big action film loosely based on the Milton Bradley board game.
If you’re a genre fan, you don’t just look forward to the summer for the warmer weather, you also look forward to spending hot days in an air conditioned movie theater, checking out the latest blockbusters.
Hasbro has released the first clip for its upcoming board-game based alien invasion action film Battleship. In the video, an alien ship fires a volley against an American military installation.
