'Battleship' Super Bowl Trailer: Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna Fire Everything, Kill Aliens

Posted: Updated:

Because 2012 wouldn't be complete without two movies featuring Taylor Kitsch and aliens, here comes "Battleship."

Based on the board game -- and produced by Hasbro, the folks behind "Transformers" -- "Battleship" stars your favorite "Friday Night Lights" fullback as a rebellious naval officer thrust into a battle with a bunch of mean extra terrestrials. Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard co-star, but what you really care about is Rihanna. Er, the massive explosions, epic scope and seemingly awesome special effects.

Peter Berg, doing his best Michael Bay impression, directs. "Battleship" hits theaters on May 18. Add your own "Battleship"-related joke in the comments below.
