Rihanna Wields Multiple Massive Guns In New Battleship Images
The Battleship marketing materials – particularly the film’s Super Bowl spot -- have played up Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch and the Transformers-like aliens that will attack our armed forces and communities from the sea. Blink, though, and you might have missed pop-music starlet Rihanna, making her feature-film debut as Raikes in Peter Berg’s film. Well, Rihanna is the focal point of six new Battleship images that have reached the Internet, courtesy of Universal Pictures (and Digital Spy):
Given the fact that Rihanna is brandishing a different weapon in almost every picture, it’s safe to guess that she’ll be heavily involved in Berg’s action once the alien technology begins to hit he fan. And while Battleship claims to be based on the classic Hasbro board game, this summer blockbuster absolutely has more in common with Michael Bay’s robot franchise than it does with the red and white pegs of the old-school game.
Battleship opens in theaters on May 18. It’s going to be a big day for beautiful Brooklyn Decker, who appears in Berg’s thriller and also co-stars in the pregnancy comedy What To Expect When You’re Expecting, also opening on that day. Given the choice, which would you pay to see on opening day: The bombastic robot thriller, or the ensemble comedy aimed at couples? Let us know your preferences in the comments section below.
