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!

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.
