Why Battleship Sank

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.
