If you think a movie based on the game “Battleship” is silly, you’re not alone. The folks at Screen Crush have just re-imagined “Battleship”– a film about an alien invasion — as a fight against classic board-game characters. (Enter Rich Uncle Pennybags from Monopoly and the King of Candy Land.)
The spoof posters even come with catchy tag lines: Monopoly: “The Battle for Earth Begins at Go” and Jenga: “Attack the Block.”
If the current Rotten Tomatoes score for the movie is any indication, a giant Pennybags or angry Operation patient wreaking havoc in the ocean might be more entertaining than the real movie.
Granted, fans shouldn’t be laughing too hard: several of these games acutally have movies in the works, including Monopoly from director Ridley Scott and a Candy Land flick starring Adam Sandler.
You can check out a few of the posters below. For the entire collection, head to Screen Crush.
“Battleship” hits theaters nationwide this Friday.
