You know a movie will be bad when.. you cast Rihanna.
You know a movie will be bad when… you cast Brooklyn Decker and it’s not a porno.
You know a movie is bad when.. even the director hangs his head in shame and calls it a flop.
“I have a movie in theaters right now which has obviously underperformed in many ways… But the concept is so big and powerful, and the money is so big and so powerful, that the movie is going to run away with itself.”
And then goes on to say:
“I wanted to do a Navy film and I’m thinking, right now, in our business, there are these huge movies that are getting made — I wanted to make one of these big ‘super movies. I thought, ‘What if I create an adventure story around something as simple as ‘Battleship’?
This sounds like an 8 year old boy who was one of the few who actually found Battleship exciting, and decided “I’m going to make an action movie out of this! And cast boobies!”
I think it’s safe to say that poor Taylor Kitsch will need to sell his body for the next while until people forget that he was in two massive flops that opened within months of each other. Although, if he still has his uniform from Battleship, he could finally start making money off the movie.
If all the movie posters had Alexander Skarsgard, rather than Rihanna, I may have been fooled into seeing it. Or Liam Neeson. Because it’s Liam Neeson. But men and women alike will follow Skarsgard down whatever white rabbit hole he leads them. Then by the time everybody realized that the movie was a stinker and Skarsgard had fooled us (you naughty boy), they would have made more money. Nobody follows a self-proclaimed bad girl down the rabbit hole.
They could have even used this photo for the movie. Doesn’t even matter that it’s not from the actual movie.
So, are we going to see any other movies revolving around games coming out any time soon? Snakes and Ladders anyone?
