The 7 Greatest Faces Taylor Kitsch Makes in the New Trailer for Battleship

This ain't your father's Battleship! Check that: this isn't even your Battleship. The first trailer for the Universal production of Battleship has debuted online, and it promises a whole lot of ridiculous and nonsensical Michael Bay-y action. No fooling: Battleship looks like an amalgam of Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and the last hour of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Thrust in the middle of this insanity is Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch, and while he was somewhat muted in the cool trailer for John Carter, he gets to run the full gamut of over-the-top emotions in Battleship. Check out his seven best faces from the trailer ahead.

VERDICT: D4.

    The casting of Kitsch as a white peg is ALL WRONG. Worse than Cruise as Reacher.

  • G says:

    "Transformers" + water = "Battleship."

  • Furious D says:

    It lacks the dramatic punch of the upcoming Connect Four movie.

    Taylor Kitsch, 2011's Sam Worthington...

  • Christopher Rosen says:

    No, say it ain't so! Not Tim Riggins!

    Ha! Check it out! In picture six, he's doing the wave!

    Also, he looks like a phone sex operator in picture four.

    Usually I give Peter Berg some credit, judging from his previous films, so I won't start assuming too much before seeing more of this. But It looks like another Hollywood formula movie - guy loves a girl way out of his league and the girl loves him back, for some reason. Girl's father knows better and disapproves, so guy goes to prove himself to the father. Then ???? and profit - in the end the guy gets the girls and the father now ok with it, expect a scene where Neeson salutes Kitsch with over the top dramatic music playing loud.
    And is it me or does he look like the uglier version of Hoyt from True Blood?
