Battle Rages Over 'Battleship' Trailer: What Fans Are Saying (Video)
Some are left scratching their heads over the film, based on the classic Hasbro game, while others can't wait for the 2012 release.
The Battleship trailer hit the web Wednesday, and it wasn't what many people expected.
Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and Rihanna star in the Peter Berg-directed actioner, which features a fleet trying to defend their ships from ... aliens?
Don't remember those from the classic Hasbro board game on which the movie is based? You're not alone.
Others pointed out that famous line "You sunk my battleship" is nowhere to be found in the trailer.
Here is a sample of reactions from Twitter:

So apparently they're turning the board game "Battleship" into a movie. Watch this trailer, and prepare to say WTF
Its funny. When I used to play Battleship as a kid, this is EXACTLY what I imagined was going on! ;)
Just watched the Battleship trailer, or as I will now call it Seamen & Aliens
Better Than Expected? First trailer for Battleship
This is exactly what I always envisioned when I was playing the board game, exactly.
Wait, there are aliens in BATTLESHIP? The giant naval power we're using ships to battle is extraterrestrial? Did they not fly here?
Battleship looks like a good movie soo, I don't get what all the fuss is about...
The worst part about the movie adaptation of the board game 'Battleship' is that I'm going to end up seeing it out of morbid curiosity.
