Troops and their friends and family who want to see the movie “Battleship” before it hits theaters May 18 can vote to bring a preview screening to a theater near their favorite military installation.
The 10 installations that get the most votes online by May 8 will get an advance screening at a nearby theater between May 15 and May 17. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The movie depicts the military fighting off an alien invasion by air, land and sea. The crew of the guided-missile destroyer John Paul Jones, among other Navy ships and Marine Corps units, appear in the film, which stars Rihanna, Alexander Skarsgård, 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 constant sacrifices,” said Josh Goldstine, president of theatrical marketing for Universal Pictures. “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 our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and coast guardsmen with their families, they may enjoy a night out at the movies.”
