Movie trailer: Battleship

You remember playing Battleship as a kid, right? Well, they've gone and made a movie out of it:

I can't decide what I hate most about this: is it the pounding rock score? Is it those pins striking the warship which look just like the plastic pins they had in the board game? Is it Liam Neeson destroying his reputation by even appearing in this thing?

No, I know: it's the fact that the producers squibbed the chance to make a movie about a naval war with China or Russia and took the alien route instead. It's the biggest cop-out since the villains in The Sum of All Fears went from Islamic extremists (in Tom Clancy's novel) to neo-Nazis.
