Update! Yesterday we posted the scan of this Battleship article on Alexander Skarsgård and Brooklyn Decker. Today we have the translation thanks to a reader Mikako. (Tack Mikako!!) It’s from a Japanese publication named “Screen” and was printed in June 2012. See below for the scan and Mikako’s translation.
Universal Picture’s 100th Anniversary movie “Battleship” is now on the theaters as one of the highly expected movies during Golden Week.
Alexander Skarsgård and Brooklyn Decker who were in this movie have come to Japan for the first time with fellow actors on April 1st. We had an interview with the beautiful couple who captivate the world.
Military exercises were taking place in the ocean near Hawaii. International combined fleet with US and Japan at the head of the list encounters aggressive alien fleet and go into battle. “Battleship” is the large scale action film. Alexander Skarsgård played a naval officer and a big brother of the hero of this film. Brooklyn Decker played a beautiful and intelligent lover of the hero.
Brooklyn was slender and tall (175cm) with shining blonde hair. A little after Brooklyn, Skarsgård entered the room. He is 190cm and selected as one of the most sexiest men. They cheek hugged and said “Hi” to each other. They are lovey as a picture and it felt like looking at one of the scenes in the movie.
Now we started interview. First question was about filming with 2 hundred million dollar production cost.
Brooklyn replied with an openhearted smile “It was amazing! Although this is my second film so I cannot compare with others. I’m sure that every day was exciting and amazing”.
Skarsgård : “I was filming Lars von Trier’s art film “Melancholia” just before this. I flew to the huge set in Hawaii directly from small set in the woods. It was amazing! For a while, I was dumbfounded.”
Filming took place in Pearl Harbor and Oahu in Hawaii. Inside fleet scenes were filmed in huge studio in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Skarsgård:” I played a captain so I filmed mostly in the studio. The set actually shakes like a real battleship. I didn’t mind about shaking but filming the scene when I had to endure shock wave from the alien was very hard. The special effect system threw an air ball into my face with high speed “boom”!”
Brooklyn: I’m confident with my physical ability” and she said that she enjoyed battle action with alien. ” When we were filming that scene, we blew up six jeeps. I had many scratches from shards of glass but it was fun!” She answered looking perfectly cool. She was a model for a famous sport magazine and she enjoyed sports. “I love every sport like track or football. My favorite at the moment is cliff diving. I went for cliff diving with Taylor Kitsch and others during filming. Height? It was about 30m. ” (Interviewer :You shouldn’t say such a thing with smiling face!)
Both of them said “Cute!” when I asked about Taylor Kitsch. Interviewer: Such a reckless and foolhardy guy like the hero Kitsch played is OK as baby brother or lover?
Skarsgård: “I’m the oldest of 6 brothers, I can imagine such a baby brother. Big brother is not a father. Big brother does not scold. The relationship between brothers are like friends. The love for brother will never change even if baby brother has done terrible things. I played big brother with that kind of my own experiences”
Brooklyn: “As lover? I think he is OK. Women cannot help loving such a guy who will do anything to please her.”
