New ‘Battleship’ and ‘American Reunion’ Featurettes

Published 3 years ago by

battleship american reunion featurettes New Battleship and American Reunion Featurettes

Here’s a mismatched pair for you: the upcoming adaptation of the Hasbro board game Battleship, as helmed (pun intended) by Peter Berg (Hancock) – and the fourth theatrically-released installment in the American Pie franchise, American Reunion, as written and directed by the guys responsible for the Harold & Kumar franchise (Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg).

There are new featurettes out for both these films, which will be hitting theaters over the next couple of months. So, if you’d like to learn more about what why exactly there are extraterrestrials in the Battleship movie – or how the original American Pie crew has (or hasn’t) changed over the years, be sure to give each clip a look-over.

Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) as Alex Hopper, an upstart Naval officer who has to lead the charge when an armada of non-Earthly origins descends upon our planet and reigns destruction down on human civilization. Rounding out the cast are such folk as Liam Neeson as stern Naval Admiral Shane, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) as Alex’s older brother and fellow sailor, Brooklyn Decker as Alex’ fiancée (and Shane’s daughter), and Rihanna as a petty officer who works alongside Alex and Co. in order to defeat their alien opponents.

Watch the latest Battleship featurette and find out what said aliens are even doing on Earth (as well as what exactly a “Goldilocks Planet” is):


American Reunion

Jim (Jason Biggs), Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), Stifler (Seann William Scott), and the rest of the classic American Pie squad are returning for American Reunion. The film picks up in real-time some 13 years after the events of the first film, and sees the former sex-crazed high schoolers all grown-up and making their way in the world. Naturally, when they meet up again for their “Class of ’99″ reunion, their old raunchy habits come back with a vengeance.

Check out the “more mature” American Pie crew together once more in the American Reunion featurette below:


All things considered, both American Reunion and Battleship aim to please by delivering exactly what they promise: a mix of heartfelt sentiment and crude antics, and tons of explosive action and cheesy thrills, respectively. Chances are that neither flick will ultimately prove to be that memorable or much more than serviceable genre entertainment, but as far as belated comedy sequels and summer popcorn movies go – you could do a whole lot worse.

American Reunion arrives in U.S. theaters next month on April 6th.

Battleship weighs anchor in U.S. theaters over a month later on May 18th.

  1. cant wait for Battleship. this really makes me want to see Independence day 2 get made. before everyone in it gets to old. will smith is still pretty young but he has age quite a bit i the last 4 years or so.

  2. The Battleship featurette sparked my interest for it more than the trailers did. Good back story me thinks. However I’m still going to wait for the rental.

  3. American Pie the real high school party, not that crappy movie Project X.

  4. I have to admit the Battleship featurette is a good idea because at least the director and producers are at least making an attempt to show that their film has a plot that actually relates to actual current events in regards to the increasing number of planets being discovered in our galaxy. John Carter would have benefited from a couple of featurettes like this instead of what quite possibly may have been the worst marketing campaign in cinema history while they just assumed everyone on Earth had read the books it was based on and just show up on opening night.

    • Watch the trailer again. It explains what they’re doing with the battleships.

    • Actually the Navy can recommission them at anytime just like they did for Desert Storm in the early 90s.

      • You are right in that they could be recommissioned but the only battleships that have not been scrapped are the 4 Iowa class fast battleships built during WW2 and all 4 have been stricken from from the naval registry (the last 2 in 2006) and turned into museums. The problem with recommissioning even one of them is that it would cost several hundred million dollars for modernization and refit. Don’t get me wrong I love these ships but in modern naval warfare they are nothing more than a mobile weapons platform used in artillery support and a sitting duck for modern jet aircraft and multitude of guided missile weapons.

  5. i think both of these movies look promising

  6. There is only one battleship in the movie the rest are destroyers and cruisers.

  7. I agree Jeffro. What’s with Stiffler’s mom and Jim’s dad? She’s like the neighborhood bicycle and I thought Jim’s parents were still together

    • they may still be, she just may have been flirting. i guess we’ll find out soon enough.

    • Didn’t Jim say it had been 2 years, or something like that? Maybe his mother is dead or they got a divorce.
