First clip from Battleship shows off the aliens' board game-inspired firepower

Even though the director Peter Berg refuses to admit that he clearly based Battleship's alien weaponry on the red pegs from the board game, this new clip begs to differ. Watch the very first clip from Battleship, in which a collection of red cannonballs blast the military. Hot damn, this movie looks like Transformers IV: Water Sports, and that's a-okay with us. Battleship will hit theateres on May 18.
