Disc 01 All Access with Director Peter Berg (HD, 140 minutes): Berg hosts this excellent Maximum Movie Mode-esque Picture-in-Picture video commentary, complete with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes, production tidbits and breakaway sessions with Berg. On a side note, it's nice to see Universal moving away from U-Control tracks, which never seem to live up to their potential. Hopefully this is a hint at the sort of PiP experiences we can expect from the studio in the future. Second Screen Experience: A second, more interactive experience is available via your tablet or PC after downloading the pocket BLU app and syncing it with your playback of the film. Alternate Ending Previsualization (HD, 8 minutes) USS Missouri VIP Tour (HD, 20 minutes): Berg, Michael Carr (President of the USS Missouri Memorial Association), and Reginald H. Johnson (USS Missouri Senior Tour Guide) take viewers on a tour of the Missouri, provide an overview of its history, and explore places on the ship most visitors aren't able to see. Preparing for Battle (HD, 11 minutes): A look at the Battleship board game with the filmmakers, the use of the game mechanics and pieces in the film, and the challenges of adapting a board game as a feature film. All Hands on Deck: The Cast (HD, 12 minutes) Engage in Battle (HD, 7 minutes): "Shooting at Sea" and "All Aboard the Fleet." Commander Pete (HD, 6 minutes): Watch as director Peter Berg energizes the cast and crew. The Visual Effects (HD, 12 minutes): See how the team and Industrial Light & Magic pushes the boundaries of visual effects to bring the aliens to life.
