Rihanna Takes Us Behind The Scenes Of Her Movie ‘Battleship’

To prepare us for her debut film role, Rihanna explores her character in this behind-the-scenes look of board game-inspired movie Battleship. As Naval weapons officer Raikes, the pop star (in a short-cropped hairdo that severely dates the footage off the bat) discusses her hands-on training with an actual weapons officer. We have to say, as cheesy and Transformers-ish as this movie looks, it’s encouraging to see Rihanna play a fully-clothed badass instead of the main hero’s love interest in a miniskirt. And that may be the one compliment we ever pay this movie. Watch RiRi talk that talk on set of her new blockbuster below.

Battleship also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch, and will be in theaters this May.
