Here's the newly released first clip from Peter Berg's BATTLESHIP, featuring a look at the alien enemy's bizarre, though admittedly nifty, weaponry (apparently nicknamed 'Shredders' here). Though we've long accepted that this bears little in the way of relation to the original board game on which it's based (calling into question why they'd saddle it with such a bland title in the first place), there's a lot of us here that are very intrigued to see whether this alien invasion flick has got what it takes to rise above its limitations.

Check out the scene below and let us know what you think...

Official Synopsis:

'Peter Berg ('Hancock') produces and directs 'Battleship,' an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Based on Hasbro's classic naval combat game, 'Battleship' stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgard as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane.'

BATTLESHIP arrives in UK cinemas April 11th, May 18th in the US.
