Super Bowl Commercials 2012: A Battleship Movie. Yeah.

Early in the 2012 Super Bowl's second quarter, we have a front-runner for most interesting commercial of the game. "Interesting" is not necessarily a good thing ... but maybe it is ... I don't know, I feel as though I need some time to process this. They are making a Battleship movie. Like, the board game. Battleship: the board game: the movie. Here's the full version of the trailer:

As far as I was able to tell, this movie involved a naval fleet that battles an alien race. Okay, and this is how they work in the board game nuance:

The film will also show us both sides of the story—fromthe aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.

They are engineering movie plots based on elements from a board game. A somewhat interesting board game, sure -- one that involves pattern detection and predictive psychology -- but still: board game. Prepare for 400,000 million trillion movie critics to write either, "now this is one Battleship that doesn't sink!", or, "Battleship sunk."

Whatever, I'll totally watch it if it gets Hollywood any closer to producing a Connect Four movie.
