Coming from Universal Studios, in time for the summer blockbuster season of 2011: BATTLESHIP, a movie based on the venerable board game, directed by Peter Berg, the guy who helmed the incredibly flawed HANCOCK.
No, I am not kidding.
Then again, Ridley (ALIEN) Scott is involved with the upcoming MONOPOLY movie, so I guess this isn't really much of a stretch. So with that in mind I say we just give up all hope and sanity and pay good money — $12.50 for an adult's ticket in the New York City area — to see these flicks culled from toys, theme park rides, and board games — fucking BOARD GAMES!!! — so the box office returns will lead to the inevitable green-lighting of PET ROCK: THE MOVIE, starring Dwayne Johnson.
PET ROCK: THE MOVIE? Oh, like you wouldn't pay to see it...
