The new sci-fi screen version of the popular board game Battleship may be awash in negative reviews, but its leading lady – a well-preserved Navy veteran – is making the most of her Hollywood turn.

The mothballed World War II battleship USS Missouri, now berthed in Honolulu’s Pearl Harbor, is the star of the new movie.
