Eventful Inc., is holding a “Battle of the Bases” campaign to bring sneak previews of the movie Battleship to 10 military bases across the country before the film opens everywhere May 18.
Family, friends and servicemembers can vote online at http://eventful.com/battleship. The 10 military bases with the most votes by May 8 will get an advanced screening of Battleship at a theater near the base between May 15 and May 17.
The action-adventure movie, which includes real sailors as extras, is about Earth fighting for survival against aliens. It stars Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson.
“These early screenings of ‘Battleship’ allow Universal an opportunity to thank our active duty and reserve service members and their families for their sacrifices,” said Josh Goldstine, President of Theatrical Marketing, Universal Pictures, in an Eventful press release. “The spirit of the film is one of assembling the best of the best for a daunting, shared mission. We hope that by bringing together members of our country’s best, they may enjoy a night out at the movies.”
