On this Veterans Day, the USO and Universal Pictures encourage everyone to visit our Facebook page to share their stories of friends and family members who serve or have served in defense of our country and of democracy around the world. This partnership between the USO and Universal Pictures also focuses on the studio’s upcoming movie release of “Battleship,” slated for release next summer.
Described as “an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force” by Universal Pictures, “Battleship” stars Taylor Kitsch (NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”), supermodel Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard (HBO’s “True Blood”), recording artist superstar Rihanna and acting great Liam Neeson.
In the featurette below, go behind the scenes with film director Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights,” “The Kingdom,” “Hancock”) as he shows how the production has incorporated active duty and retired military members into the movie and what they bring to the feature. (Look closely and you might be able to catch glimpses of some of the film’s stars, as well.)
