[VIDEO] Peter Berg Blames The Avengers On Battleship's Failure
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.27.2012



Peter Berg spoke with MTV about his film Battleship flopping, and he blamed The Avengers for the film's failure.

Battleship earned $235 million in international box office, but only $63 million domestically.

Berg said: "The movie kicked butt internationally, but we kind of ran into a wall when 'Avengers' refused to go away. 'The Avengers' outperformed everything. It was impossible for 'Battleship' to get any oxygen."

When asked if there was anything he would do different with the film's release, he said: "I would have loved to have come out three weeks before 'The Avengers' domestically, like we did internationally. We did OK, but in hindsight which my grandmother used to say is worth about a bucket of spit we would have [released the movie] ahead of 'The Avengers,' not realizing it would have become, I think, the second biggest film in history behind 'Avatar.' (It's actually the third highest, behind Titanic.)

Finally, he was asked about a sequel. He added: "What I need everyone to do is go see 'Battleship' now that they've seen 'Avengers' five times. If they do that, we can definitely make a sequel. Battleship' is a film that I would definitely like to do a sequel to. I loved making that film. I had a great time with it."
