TV About Movies® today announced it’s all hands on deck for a thrilling ride behind the scenes of a huge summer blockbuster in the REELZ Special “Battleship: Game On!” REELZ’s own Jeremy Parsons hosts, taking viewers into the heart of the “Battleship” set in Honolulu, Hawaii and Pearl Harbor atop the USS Missouri battleship. “Battleship: Game On!” features exclusive one-on-one interviews with the movie’s stars Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard and director Peter Berg, who talk about filming in Pearl Harbor on real American battleships and what it was like to work with Navy servicemen and women as well as World War II veterans. See an exclusive never-before-seen clip from the movie and hear stars Liam Neeson and Decker talk about the inspirational story of Army Lt. Col. Greg Gadson, who lost both of his legs in the Iraq war and will have his first movie role in “Battleship.”
“While the movie is pure adrenaline on the high seas, REELZ goes deeper to show viewers the incredible stories behind Battleship’s journey from board game to highly-anticipated blockbuster and introduce them to the remarkable real-life people the characters were based on,” said Steve Holzer, Executive Producer of REELZCHANNEL Original Programming.
“Battleship: Game On!” also features a story about the evolution of pop star Rihanna, looking at her successful music career and in her own words, she explains why now is the time for her acting debut.
