A brand new TV spot for the Peter Berg directed ‘Battleship’ has surfaced and this time it focuses on the combat between the aliens and humans.

If there was any doubt that Michael Bay produced this film then this short TV spot called ‘Global Hero’ should erase that as the commercial is 30 seconds of nonstop action. You can see why, with this spot, the movie was well received overseas.

The stigma of being associated with a Hasbro game may be a reason that the film may not open as well domestically, but the marketing department looks like they strayed away from the naval aspect in this clip hoping the action will bring you to see the movie.

What do you think? Has the recent TV spots, featurettes and trailers changed your mind?

‘Battleship’  TV Spot Global Hero:

Directed by Peter Berg, ‘Battleship’ stars Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons and Brooklyn Decker and opens in theaters on May 18th.
