Can 'Battleship' sink 'The Avengers' at box office?

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Peter Berg knows his way around a camera -- both as an actor and as a director.

You might have heard of his new movie. It's a little flick that has its roots in a popular board game -- "Battleship." It just might be the only movie that can sink "The Avengers" at the box office this weekend.

Rated PG-13, "Battleship" is just over two hours. It opens Friday.
