A film about the aftermath and investigation following the sinking of the Titanic will hit select movie theaters on April 12, two days before the anniversary of the disaster. The story of the Titanic still grips people to this day.

The story has been brought to life on screen multiple times, most notably in the Oscar-sweeping 1997 movie starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet. Now, there is another movie set to explore a more untold aspect of the Titanic story.

Unsinkable: Titanic Untold will be released in select theaters across the US. Screenings will be taking place in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Denver, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and more cities and towns across the country.

The synopsis for the film reads: "UNSINKABLE tells the riveting journey of Senator William Alden Smith and undercover journalist Alaine Ricard as they investigate the aftermath of the most impactful maritime disaster in history... the Titanic."

The movie charts the pursuit of truth following the sinking of the Titanic, the rushed investigation, and political interference with flashbacks to the heroic actions of those onboard the doomed ship.

Unsinkable debuted last year at the Three Rivers Film Festival in Pittsburgh. Local director Cody Hartman adapted the film from writer Eileen Enwright Hodgetts’ play Titanic to All Ships which explores the Senate inquiries into the disaster.

"We wanted to tell the story of the survivors, their heroism and sacrifice," said Hartman. "It's quite challenging, everything from the sets to the costume design.

"The most rewarding part is going to be seeing if we can transport audiences back to what it felt like in 1912."
