"There's been so much inherent skepticism about how you can make a film about plastic pegs and grids," 'Battleship' director Peter Berg told Moviefone during an edit bay visit earlier this year. "To me that was never an issue. It was all about naval warfare and about the modern navy." That and invading aliens trying to destroy the planet! Can Taylor Kitsch (formerly known as Tim Riggins on 'Friday Night Lights'), Alexander Skarsgard, Jesse Plemons (formerly known as Landry Clarke on 'Friday Night Lights') and Rihanna stop these dastardly creatures before they sink humanity's battleship? Sure thing! Or at least delay them until the inevitable sequel.

'Battleship' hits theaters on May 18, 2012. Watch the trailer in HD over at Apple.
