Time will tell if "Battleship" sinks or floats with viewers, but a new clip for the big-budget game adaptation suggests that it might not be all wet — despite the fact that it takes place on the open seas.

The new clip, exclusive to XFinity TV, depicts Rihanna, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch making their first contact with what appears to be a battalion of massive alien ships with not-particularly-friendly intentions.

Despite the serious weaponry that Rihanna sports in the snippet, something tells us that she's gonna need a bigger gun. And maybe even a bigger boat.

The Peter Berg-directed "Battleship" docks in theaters May 18. Until then, check out the clip in the video.
