Battleship Blu-ray

Posted July 9, 2012 02:34 PM by Josh Katz

Universal 100thIn August, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will bring Battleship to Blu-ray. Filmmaker Peter Berg (Hancock) helms this sci-fi-action epic, which takes its inspiration from the classic Hasbro board game of the same name. In the film, a hostile alien presence invades Earth, and only a military battleship under the command of a shiftless Naval lieutenant (Taylor Kitsch, John Carter) stands between the creatures and total global domination.

Battleship also features a supporting cast that includes Liam Neeson (The Grey), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It), and pop star Rihanna.

Universal's Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack presents the feature in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. In addition to Universal's standard BD-Live, pocket BLU, Advanced Remote Control, Video Timeline, Mobile-To-Go, and Keyboard functionalities, the set also contains a number of bonus supplements, such as:
  • Behind-the-scenes featurettes:
    • Preparing for Battle
    • All Hands on Deck: The Cast
    • Engage in Battle featurettes:
    • - Shooting at Sea
      - All Aboard the Fleet
  • Blu-ray exclusive features:
    • Alternate ending pre-visualization with commentary by Peter Berg
    • Behind-the-scenes featurettes:
    • - The Visual Effects of Battleship
      - All Access with Director Peter Berg
      - USS Missouri VIP Tour
      - Commander Pete
  • Second Screen functionalities, which include:
    • Alien Tech 3D Model Turntable Explosions
Battleship streets on August 28th.




Note: The clip that follows - an excerpt from the Second Screen feature - finds Peter Berg discussing the picture's "Shredder" attackers.

Taylor Kitsch managed to a lead actor in two fo the biggest bombs of the year - Battleship and John Carter. John Carter was actually a fairly decent film. Battleship was terrible.

John Carter bombs then Battleship bombs. This aren't looking too good for Taylor Kitsch.

Looking forward to this. Good popcorn flick. Action blows Avengers away. Though we all know Dark Knight Rises will be the movie of the summer.

Kind of wish the comments were limited to people who actually saw this film...and not a pirated download either, the A/V experience adds a lot to the movie.

Not bad, not great. A decent popcorn flick with good eye & ear candy. I will be picking up this movie on Blu-ray.

Battleship was way worse than John carter. Actually Battleship has no redeeming quality whatsoever. I can see myself watching John Carter again. Battleship, on the other hand, I am trying to forget.

I mean really... Did anybody actually think this looked good? At some point Peter Berg or Universal should have realized that this was going to be a huge stinker! Cant believe they kept the May release date.... To me this looked like the worst movie of the year. I have not seen it nor will I

Missed it in theaters. Will pick this up. Should kick ass on the HT at least. John Carter was a pretty darn good movie, just horribly marketed.

If anyone expects anything more than "garbage" when Hollywood releases their annual summer films, they're crazy. It is what it is. Typical young movie-goers today are ignorant morons who have the attenion span of a flea, and the movies we get reflect that.

You people are just too artsy fartsy, and just can't enjoy a mindless Summer action flick. Not every film is Shakespearean, well maybe except for Coriolanus.

I had a friend post the trailer for this movie on his facebook. I immediately commented that it looked absolutely terrible. He deleted my comment. Come to find out he did some work on the movie.... and John Carter.....

I never saw either of them. They both looked horrible.

How does "Battleship" compare to "Battle: Los Angeles"?.....I haven't seen "Battleship", but I have "Battle: Los Angeles" on Blu-ray, and I was very disappointed in the latter.

I really enjoyed this effort. This movie didn't take it self too seriously, To me the final relentless action gave this movie an elevation to a level that you could forgive any flaws this movie presented previously. What can I say, I had fun, and a good escape . I liked the ambiance of the movie most of all, good visuals.

@dragon53, I preferred Battleship. Battle LA took itself a little too seriously for my liking and I could not escape the shaky cam.

Battleship takes itself less seriously then Battle LA. I was going to skip it all together till disc but then I saw a Snow White & Hunstman/ Battleship double feature at the drive-in (Yes, there are still drive-ins in America).

Berg knows it's silly material, and it's not a great flick, but it has some good respect for the military. Some of the film's best and most important moments hang on WWII veterans and Iraq war vets who lost limbs (played by a real war vet double amputee).

The movie's climax is so corny and yet oddly patriotic and respectful of veterans, it redeemed the entire movie for me. I don't even want to spoil it but I think it's worth at least a rent.

@ LordRaymond -

Why not throw in Shawshank Redemption or The Godfather, for good measure...? Tom & Jerry have better scripts than Battleship!

@LordRaymond. I saw all three of those films including Battleship. There is no way Battleship had a better story. Battleship was a popcorn film at best people should realize that before even seeing the film. that said I had fun with the film. Wasn't fantastic or life altering, but fun.

@NYorker I actually had a guy tell me that The Fast and Furious had a better story than Shawshank Redemption. No lie...

@NYorker That doesn't make much sense. Those two aren't summer blockbusters nor was the scripts poorly written.

@thedarkangel1975 I never said a better story.

Just trying to make a point that movies like Battleship automatically gets bashed while other movies with similiar intent gets out unscathed.

I saw it in theatres, and honestly I enjoyed it. Maybe it was bc of how people said it was so terrible. So my expectations were pretty low. But I enjoyed the whole thing. very entertaining.
