Rihanna is set to appear in the summer blockbuster “Battleship” and in the above clip, fans can catch the singer-turned-actress manning the guns on her ship. Although some critics were originally skeptic of Rihanna’s role in the film, director Peter Berg, told MTV News that, “she was great” and that “she has a very strong part.”
“Battleship” is the latest adaptation from Hasbro, and boasts one of the hottest young casts of any movie this summer. Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker all star in the upcoming sci-fi action flick and will participate in the extended chat on MTV.com immediately after the clip airs.
Kitsch spoke with MTV News last fall about his latest collaboration with director Peter Berg, who gave the Canadian actor his big break on the television adaptation of “Friday Night Lights.” “You don’t know what to expect with ’Battleship,’ especially when we team up, Pete and I. You’re going to get a lot of laughs, guaranteed,” Kitsch said. “And, of course, the action is going to speak for itself. It’s huge.”
Don’t forget to join Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Alexander Skarsgard and Brooklyn Decker for “MTV First: Battleship” on Monday, April 30 at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV!
