Many critics thought Battleship was a gamble with a $209 million dollar budget and the failure of John Carter fresh in everyone's minds.
But, the blockbuster proved the naysayers wrong as it opened number one in every country it premiered except France and is now expected to make $300 million dollars in overseas sales alone!
Sure, the action film has a long ways to go before then, but Battleship is off to a rocking good start as its Day One estimate is expected to be $7.4 million!
The film made
Aliens, Explosions, and Rihanna… Oh my!!!
Here's a present we've gift wrapped for all of y'all who are as excited as we are for the new science fiction action film!
While the film has an amazing line-up of stars in the cast — like RiRi, Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard — this sneak peek is more about the other most important element in Battleship: the effects!
This does look similar to Transformers, but since Battleship is coming from Peter Berg, the creator of Friday Night Lights, we know this flick is going to have a great story along with the great special effects!!!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above!)
Spoiler Alert: someone sinks a battleship. LOL.
Batman fans, rejoice!!
Actor Liam Neeson has been officially confirmed to return as Ra's Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises!!!
Tucked away in the 45 pages of production notes for the film Wrath Of The Titans, which Neeson will also star in, was the answer to what Dark Knight fans had been wondering!
The notes read:
"Neeson next appears in Peter Berg’s actioner “Battleship,” and he also will be seen in Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated action thriller “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Someone's sure been busy!!
Wrath Of The Titans hits theaters Friday, with The Dark Knight Rises out in July of this year!!
R U happy with Liam's return???

Jane Fonda is switching sides!!!! Sorta.
The actress is set to join Butler, the story behind a White House servant who attended to eight different presidents for 65 years. Jane is set to play Nancy Reagan.
Interestingly enough, Jane is SUPER liberal! HA!
Talk about committing to your role!
Hugh Jackman becomes the latest actor to don the Jean Valjean name in the FIRST ever film adaptation of the stage production of Les Misérables.
Joining the likes of Liam Neeson and the original Jean, Colm Wilkinson, who has a cameo in the flick, we're sure Hugh will do a FABulous job!
That is a very fancy umbrella for being homeless, though! HA!
Are U excited for the 2012 version of Les Mis?!

Yay! Rihanna gets LOADS of face time here!
Battleship is gearing up for battle this summer and it's released its third trailer to hype up the flick.
Check out the tralier above and see seksi RiRi help Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard save the world!
Let's hope this sci-fi military film fairs better than Taylor Kitsch's last film, John Carter, which opened to very disappointing numbers.
Are U excited for this movie to come out?
Many may not have thought that the remake of Clash of the Titans warranted a sequel, but it's coming anyway!
Thankfully, however, it looks as though they're using it to try to rectify some of the problems with the first!
Ch-ch-check out the just-released new trailer for Wrath of the Titans, in which Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes reprise their respective roles as Perseus, Zeus, and Hades (above)!
We'll forgive Sam's hair for the time being because the action sequences and special effects definitely look really cool!
But here's hoping that that's not all this flick has to offer!
What do U think?? Will U check out Wrath of the Titans?
