First official Battleship poster launched

Ship-sinking board game movie captured in poster form

 
The first official poster for upcoming war flick Battleship has been revealed. 
 
Those unfamiliar with the board game from toy manufacturer Hasbro can be forgiven for thinking it looks like a promo for Titanic 2
 
Perhaps more intriguing is the countdown clock which has begun on the film's official website at battleshipmovie.com - by our calculations it runs out at 9am on Wednesday morning in the UK. 
 
Will it eventually reveal a trailer? Further images besides the poster? The ability to challenge your friends at an actual online game of Battleships? Only time will tell... 
 
Battleship is due in UK cinemas on 18 May 2012. 
 

Can this movie live up to the white-knuckle, edge-of-your-seat experience of actually playing the Battleships board game? Feel free to tell us if we're being sarcastic below!
