As a bonus to FNL fans, director Peter Berg once again casts Jesse Plemmons as the nerdy guy who's always quick with the wisecrack. His boatswain character offers consistently good comic relief, as well as a decent acting partner for Rihanna's debut as a hard-as-nails weapons specialist. While Battleship's script is far from the layered finesse of, say, The Avengers, the action is exactly what you'd expect from an explosive summer popcorn flick. Tweens and teens -- especially boys -- will get a kick out of the military tactics and the broad humor (look, kids, elderly veterans curse!), while grown-ups might wonder if they've seen the same movie every summer for the past 15 years.

The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken battleship USS Arizona, the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941, when their ship was bombed by Japanese Naval Forces. This loss of life represents over half of the Americans killed during the worst naval disaster in American history.

The National Park Service (NPS) in partnership with Pacific Historic Parks offers daily programs that include a movie about the December 7th, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and a boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial. The Boat tours start at 8:00 am and go through 3:30pm daily. Tours last approximately 45 minutes from the time you board your boat.

When visitors first witness the Battleship New Jersey, they are amazed at its sheer size. Nearly three football fields long and over 11 stories high, the Battleship New Jersey was the longest battleship ever built.

Hopper's order to drop the port anchor in order to rapidly swing the ship around to the opposite direction is a real-life maneuver known as clubhauling. It's very risky, but it allows a ship to re-tack in combat or an emergency. Clubhauling was used almost exclusively on sailing ships which were much lighter and easier to steer. A clubhaul on an Iowa class battleship would likely cause severe damage and injury.

The movie is based on the Milton Bradley game "Battleship", which has been manufactured since 1931. Some of the artillery in the film is shaped like the pegs used in the game. The original paper and pencil version of the game predates World War I.

The destroyers in the movie are Arleigh Burke class destroyers. The U.S.S. Hopper (DDG-70) is an Arleigh Burke class destroyer based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and named after Rear Admiral "Amazing" Grace Hopper, who also gives her surname to some of the main characters.

Although the movie never comes out and says it, Alex Hopper was enlisted in the Navy before he became an officer. The movie gives clues to it, as one of Hopper's warfare device on his uniform is silver, and in several scenes, a tattoo of a "Mustang" can be seen on his right forearm. A Mustang is a term used for officers that are prior enlistees. He is also seen wearing the Good Conduct Medal on his Navy Whites. This medal is only awarded to enlisted sailors.

Hasbro provided a range of movie-related merchandise but sales were disappointing, reaching very low numbers by the 2012 holiday season. This followed a trend with Hasbro going back to the 2003 holiday season, which saw the introduction of the "G.I. Joe Real Gear" line of camping and fishing gear. Despite the series of movies and an impressive range of merchandise, including a backpack with telescoping fishing combo resembling a radio pack, and the winning of various marketing awards as well as an award for product innovation, there was very little interest from retailers. At the end of the three-year branding contract, the manufacturer was forced to destroy some 85% of the total production run. The fact is that G.I Joe was an aging brand and the series of G.I. Joe films did little to drive interest in the merch. The same happened with Battleship, as the game was very aged, it was not a big seller at that time, plus the consumer demographics didn't match between the film and the game. The big merchandising winner was Spider-Man, with the original trilogy spanning the retail years of 2003 - 2008. When the Battleship film came out, the big winner for that year - 2012 - was The Amazing Spider-Man and then its sequel two years later, which continued the dominance of Spider-Man merchandise.

Hopper's calling upon the retired veterans to help crew the Missouri is inspired by actual historical events. When the Iowa class battleships were reactivated in the 1980's, the Navy had to recall veterans who had served on the ships during World War II and Korea, so they could teach the new crews how to operate the guns, fire control systems and other 1940's era technology.

"If the Navy had not been partners in this film, there's no way we could have pulled this off," she said. "We made this movie because we wanted to showcase the modern Navy, which is a Navy that has not been seen in a film before. The real people on the ships, you can't take your eyes off of them, and these enormous ships just look so cinematic on the open ocean."

"Battleship" arrives after the Navy has been more or less on cinematic dry dock. Anderson said that even though the Navy has worked with television shows like "NCIS" and "Hawaii Five-O," requests for access from moviemakers have tapered off in recent years.

The Skimmer appears in the battleship movie as the ship with orange lights. It's crew focused aggressively on the three human ships, being able to handle two of the three ships and maintaining a position of superiority despite being one vs two. It's weapons obliterated with destructive ferocity a great part of the RIMPAC crew aboard the JS Myoko and the USS Sampson, both blown up to pieces. When the mild but powerful ship, along with the Archer, faced the USS John Paul Johnes in a nighttime duel against the Striker. It was overwhelmed and destroyed by a perfect timed-launch of balistic missiles.

Battleship has capsized. Despite its bloated $300 million production and marketing budget, gung-ho advertising campaign, and predictions for a massive Transformers-like opening weekend, the effects-heavy naval warfare blockbuster starring Taylor Kitsch debuted to just $25.3 million (especially odd since it's already grossed $226 million overseas). It's the worst domestic opening ever for a movie budgeted at over $200 million. Here, five theories why Battleship sank at the box office:

4. The board game tie-in was a bustThe Hasbro board game upon which Battleship is "based" is a primitive affair featuring plastic pegs and tiny toy ships. Vastly expanding its context, the film encompasses naval warfare, militant extraterrestrials, and even romance. Perhaps "moviegoers weren't able to get past the idea of seeing a board game adaptation crossed with an alien invasion flick," says Young. Trailers for the film garnered "a lot of confounded looks and 'huh?' expressions" from fans of the game, says Travis Leamons at Inside Pulse. The younger generation likely missed the connection altogether, says Cunningham, since the board game's popularity predates the Xbox age.

5. It just wasn't goodThe movie's relative overseas success aside, perhaps moviegoers are more discerning than we think, says Cole Abaius at Film School Rejects. Battleship was pilloried by critics, while The Avengers won rave reviews. Hopefully "studios will see the truth in this triumph of the masses": Scoring a truly massive box office requires more than an oversized marketing budget and special effects. "It takes honest, positive, enthusiastic word of mouth." And a good film.

Can you guess which rock tune is the most expensive song to use in a movie? The answer has emerged before, but one TikTok user recently brought the topic up again just to underscore the huge sum it actually costs to employ the classic rock track in a flick.

"What is the most expensive song to include in a movie?" Wall asks in the clip he shared on the social app last December. "This song was in movies like Deadpool 2 [2017], Battleship [2012] and Thor: Ragnarok [2017]."

He continues, "We're talking about 'Thunderstruck' by AC/DC. Keep in mind that sync fees are usually anywhere between $15,000 and $60,000. So how much does this song cost to put in your movie? Half a million dollars [$500,000].

Synchronization fees ("synch fees") are paid for the use of copyrighted music in movies, TV shows, video games and advertisements. In 2014, it was reported that 1999's Varsity Blues paid the half-million fee for the AC/DC song, something Walls referenced in his recap.
