While flying to a wedding last weekend I caught a few glimpses of a movie that a fellow passenger was watching that looked interesting. I could not hear any audio and I only caught a couple minutes of what I presume was the beginning of the movie.

The first scene had a group of scientists discussing aspects of 3 planets, which I believe were Venus, Earth, and Mars. A screen shows that Venus's temperature was +250 degrees (I didn't see what scale).

Later, the shot zooms above what kind of looks like a solar collection tower in a mountainous area. Energy gathers together at the center, sort of Death Star style, and then shoots a yellowish beam into space.

The next scene shows 2 white guys at a dimly lit bar with some neon lights. I did not recognize any of the actors in any of these scenes, but it seems like a fairly recent movie, probably no more than 10 years old.

  • Was this a movie in a seat-back infotainment system or was it on someone's personal device? If it was the former, it might be listed on the airline's website/app or someone else might be flying that could look it up during their flight. – TylerH Oct 23 '17 at 15:52

    @TylerH great question. It was on a personal device. – BlackThorn Oct 23 '17 at 15:53

    Battleship maybe? – Sorcefyre Oct 23 '17 at 19:46
  • @Sorcefyre I looked into Battleship and it looks like that is it. Why don't you go ahead and post an answer so I can give you credit? – BlackThorn Nov 28 '17 at 23:39

Per my (very short) comment. Could this be Battleship?

  • I will say this isn't a great answer because neither the text nor the video clip show anything I described above (except there is a yellow beam shot upwards very briefly at 1:18). But Sorcefyre's comment did lead me to discovering that this was, indeed, the correct movie. – BlackThorn Dec 4 '17 at 21:49
