New character posters for Battleship


Battleship has launched a new range of international posters, showing four of the film’s major human players.

The new posters show our four heroes looking extremely gruff (well, except for Rihanna, who looks quite pretty), with a short-haired Taylor Kitsch looking worlds away from his John Carter persona.

Notable features include Liam Neeson’s remarkably youthful face, Alexander Skarsgard’s apparent transformation into Dolph Lundgren and a fairly unconvincing naval tattoo on Rihanna’s upper arm.

We’ve no doubts that this one is going to be highly ridiculous, but we quite like the premise of one tiny battleship being able to repel an alien invasion more or less singlehandedly. Underneath it all, it’s just a classic underdog story.

sets sail for UK cinemas on 11 April 2012. Meanwhile, you can check out those posters in full, below…
