Rihanna Prepares to Fight in New ‘Battleship’ Trailer
Rihanna is looking super-intense in a brand-new trailer for ‘Battleship,’ which shows even more epic action scenes from the forthcoming film.
The singer plays Petty Officer Raikes, appearing in several shots during the 2-minute long clip. The trailer offers more context for the movie, which was directed by Peter Berg of ‘Friday Night Lights’ fame.
The flick follows a fleet of naval ships that are tasked with trying to stop an alien force from destroying the world. Fans get a glimpse of these robotic creatures, which can traverse land and sea. They are shown taking over Hong Kong and beyond, and at one point we hear a voice that says, “We’re looking at a global extinction event.”
From the looks of Rihanna’s game face, Raikes has this covered. The movie, which is based on the popular Milton Bradley game, also stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgaard, Liam Neeson and Brooklyn Decker. Fans of ‘Friday Night Lights’ will be pleased to see Jesse Plemons (Landry Clarke) on the big screen, as well.
The blockbuster will be Rihanna’s second film, following the straight-to-DVD cheerleading movie ‘Bring It On: All or Nothing.’ ‘Battleship’ opens in theaters on May 18.
