With a cast which includes ‘True Blood’ star Alexander Skarsgard and Pop sensation Rihanna, you’d be forgiven for assuming ‘Battleship’ had no choice but to do well commercially.

However, in what will only make landing major roles for the singer even harder, the movie has tanked in the US– bringing a shameful $9 million at the Box Office.

This, despite the momentum it garnered when it debuted internationally in April and its budget of $209 million. Coming at #2 behind ‘The Avengers‘, the flick’s failure follows a series of mixed reviews- receiving a score of 36% from Rotten Tomatoes.

It also marks the latest project by the ‘We Found Lovesinger to miss out on the #1 spot.

In 2011, her latest studio album ‘Talk That Talk’ became the sixth LP to miss out on the top spot, making her the first female artist to have 11 #1 singles without a US #1 album to her name, despite enjoying successes in the UK and Europe respectively.
