From superhero movies to sci-fi to computer-animated kiddie fare, this summer seems to have been filled with some memorable movies. But being able to tell your "Avengers" from your "Battleship" may be harder than you think.
Funny Or Die has put together a mash-up of some eye-popping scenes from this summer's 3-D movies as well as a few from the recent past, and, it turns out, these movies have a lot of elements in common. To be a 3-D movie these days, it looks like you've got to have a sweeping shot of a New York City skyline, a heroic archer shooting an arrow towards the screen and a huge buglike alien terrorizing the town. Throw in a blue light that shines into the sky, and you've got yourself a 3-D blockbuster. Get More »
"Battleship" took an "Avengers"-sized torpedo to its aft mizzen deck this weekend as Marvel's unstoppable juggernaut easily won the top spot at the box office for the third week in a row.

Now that the "Friday Night Lights" star has graduated to the world of movies, we thought this was the right time to check out his performance in his new summer blockbuster movie ... and his even more compelling performance on the red carpet.
Because he's really gorgeous, get it?
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
Great, now we're not going to be able to watch "Battleship" without thinking it could use a little more Nico on the soundtrack. And Devo. And the Ramones ...
What if this summer's board game action extravaganza had been directed by the man behind such quirky character dramas as "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Rushmore" (and this summer's "Moonrise Kingdom," at that)? It might look (and sound) a little like this video parody courtesy of Student Loans For Beer Money, which replaces the explosions (and, well, water) of Peter Berg's adaptation with primary colors, storybook art direction and strange, melancholy pauses.

After proving he could do superheroes with "Hancock," director Peter Berg is getting all Michael Bay on us with a big ol' summer alien invasion disaster movie, based on a board game, called "Battleship."
Taylor Kitsch plays Lieutenant Alex Hopper, a U.S. Navy tactical action officer aboard the USS John Paul Jones, under the stern command of Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson). When their naval exercises uncover some hostile extraterrestrial forces, it'll take all the firepower they've got to sink those E.T.s but good.
"Battleship" isn't the only other piece of board game cinema coming at you this summer.
"All the excitement of the game without the hassle of playing it and with none of the excitement" (don't think about that too hard) is the way at least one board game aficionado describes the upcoming "Guess Who: The Game, The Movie," a heart-pounding mix of "Die Hard With a Vengeance" and pretty much any "Scream" movie.
