Rihanna In 'Battleship' Costume Set Pics Arrive Online

"Battleship." You can be forgiven if you didn't take plans for a movie version of the classic board game seriously when it was first announced. It's real though. Peter Berg is directing it. Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard are starring. Pop star Rihanna was also recently confirmed to be joining them in a lead role. That's the kind of casting that sells movie tickets, my friends.

We've got a special treat for you today, in the form of a first look at Rihanna on the set of the film. As you can see in the tease up above and in the full pic after the jump, she's outfitted for combat. In the movie she'll presumably get to unleash her inner badass and fire a gun at some of those invading space alien bastards.
