Neeson will play Admiral Shane of the USS John Paul Jones and if you’re wondering how all of the other characters fit together, they more than just serve together on the same ship; Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) plays Hopper, an officer engaged to Brooklyn Decker’s character, Sam, who happens to be the daughter of Admiral Shane. It’s a Naval family!
If that’s not all, Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) is Hopper’s older brother but he commands another ship, the USS Samson, for which Rihanna’s character Lt. Raikes also serves as a weapons specialist.
As for the story of the Battleship movie, very loosely based on the board game, if at all, the movie will follow human Naval forces as they encounter alien spaceships landed in our ocean. The aliens are stuck with a damaged vessel and alien-human naval warfare ensues. Battleship is directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) and will hit theaters May 18, 2012.

Alexander Skarsgard talks about his big guy-on-guy kiss
EW: Eric has been such a roller coaster this season in terms of being nice and then vicious.
AS: Well, that kind of sums up the character. You never quite know what he’s up to or where you have him. It’s been great to dig deeper and show a different side.
EW: The scene in which you seduce and then kill Russell’s husband, Talbot, was intense. What was it like to film that?
AS: I’d never kissed a guy before on a show or in a movie, and that was Theo’s first time as well, and we talked about it. It goes from being this romantic, beautiful scene, and they’re getting rough with each other and getting it on – and the turn where Eric just slaughters him. It’s such a rich scene. I basically said, We’ve got to sell it in the beginning. It’s got to be passionate and beautiful because then the payoff is going to be so much more rewarding.
EW: Eric has definitely had his share of sex scenes. Do you have a personal favorite?
AS: I did like the one where I’m having sex with Yvetta, and Sookie shows up, and I’m kind of flirting with her naked. And this is like five seconds after she saw me fucking another girl. I think that’s pretty cocky.
EW: What’s in store for Eric in the finale?
AS: I think that it’s over for me. There’s no way I can beat Russell. He’s three times my age. But then I come up with an idea of how I could possibly take him with me to meet the true death. So that’s my plan. To go down with him together.
