If you like your summer blockbusters loud and proud, it likely won’t get better than the first few weeks as The Avengers kicks things off, quickly followed by Battleship. The first clip for Peter Berg‘s alien sea battle actioner has arrived, which displays something we’ve surmised all along: this is indeed a sequel to Transformers. It may not have of the same characters or plot, but every piece of the sound design and style has us thinking otherwise.
The clip shows some of the alien technology taking down Navy helicopters and looks to deliver everything you want while you munch that popcorn. Starring Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, Hamish Linklater and Brooklyn Decker, the film will actually get overseas next week, so look for our review soon.
