Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna and others in the cast didn’t make quite that grand an entrance but were welcomed with plenty of cheers from the crowd flanking the blue carpet – especially the hip-hop artist, whose fans constantly shouted “Ri-Ri!” as she made her way toward the theater.
“Battleship” reunited several people from “Friday Night Lights,” including Kitsch, actor Jesse Plemons, producer Sarah Aubrey and Berg, who developed "Lights" for NBC.
While introducing the cast to the audience before the premiere screening, Berg said of Kitsch, “He’s like my crazy little brother.”
Other costars from the TV shows that have amassed fans for “Battleship’s” leads were also on hand at the Nokia Theatre event: Connie Britton of “Friday Night Lights” and Joe Manganiello of Skarsgård’s “True Blood."
Kitsch spent countless hours filming football-game scenes for “Friday Night Lights,” but in “Battleship” he got to show off his soccer skills: The movie features a game between the U.S and Japanese navies.
“It wasn’t in the script when I signed on,” the"John Carter"star said on the blue carpet.
