I'm looking forward to seeing Battleship when it comes out. Watching that awesome trailer, I couldn't help but feel like I'd seen (and heard) at least some of it before. It has a distinct Transformers feel to it, and indeed that's what some Battleship reviews have been comparing it to. Hollywood grind right? Like a damn sausage factory. As long as they keep me entertained, I don't give a rat's ass. Anyway, to see if my feeling was justified, I took the Battleship Trailer and edited in some bits and pieces from the trailers of the three Transformers movies. The result? Pretty seamless, although I think I could have added MUCH more if I spent more time on it. See the mash-up after the jump. The basis is, as mentioned, the Battleship Trailer, with all the audio as well. I simply cut in some suitable Transformers footage where possible. Some places it runs for quite a while without a cut to Baysplosions. Is it laziness, or just the fact that Battleship really does look like Transformers, so much so that additional footage isn't needed?
All in all there are about 15 bits of Transformers footage in there. Can you spot them all?
