It's hard to put the sentiments enveloping the upcoming Battleship feature film into words. Stemming from one of the simplest boardgames out there, one might wonder how a movie can both retain the spirit of the source material and still provide a full, satisfying story. To the wonderers, some might say: ships battling for the conquest of sea is not a theme lacking in value. The idea of opposing naval forces engaging in a deadly war has, and shall continue to, be a gripping industry for the cinema.

But Battleship is amping up the intensity by instilling another theme into the story: the unknown. It's not simply two opposing forces fighting one another. One of the forces stems from the unknown. A superior race with mysterious origins, and superior technology. So the question is: are they unsinkable?

Check out the new poster and image below to determine the sinkability of these dastardly (or perhaps misunderstood?) foes. 

Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna and Liam Neeson, and opens May 18.
