Behind the Scenes: ‘Battleship’ with Rihanna

Though best known for her career-long war waged against eardrums, ‘Man Down’ diva Rihanna has exchanged that battle skill set for another set of weapons as evidenced by her forthcoming film venture ‘Battleship’.  Despite ‘Talk That Talk’ barely staying afloat in Billboard’s upper half, ‘Ship’ sees the island beauty fill out a cast featuring  famed actors Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch.  Boasting a reported budget of $200 million, the Peter Berg-directed film will certainly have high expectations when it sails into theaters on May 18th.

Until then, get into this trailer uploaded to the starlet’s official Youtube page today.  Getting a sneak peek, behind the scenes view of the action, Riri lets fans in on a tour of the ship and her duties onboard.  Much to the delight of many-a-viewer, the ‘Only Girl’ singer was only asked to speak during the session.

A clip behind the ‘Battleship’ awaits:

  12. riri January 9, 2012

    this movie look like another transformers. But riri look nice here, from the small clip i saw she is good at acting!

  13. TruthTeller January 9, 2012

    TTT barely stayin afloat on billboard 200?
    Is that what u call an album that is still top10 with 0 promo while ur dear MJB is sinking like a rock despite being on every show that would have her?

    Where is Kelly Flopland?

  14. Demi January 9, 2012

    @ Truthteller

    I know right!!! it’s like sam is acting so delusional. Like he can dismiss the fact that talk that talk is ACTUALLY doing really good. I mean over 1.8 mil worldwide in about 2 months with barely any promo for any artist today that is amazing. I mean like BARELY NO PROMO!!!! That says enough in itself.

  15. LAX January 9, 2012

    @TruthTeller

    STFU and TAKE A SEAT TALK THAT FLOP AND SINKING HARDER THEN Mary J. Blige album

    KERI Hilson Album Sold More Than Talk that FLop Check The Records

  16. James227 January 9, 2012

    200 mil humm Then the movie have to bring in 300-400 millions or 200 mil to break even. With today economy I hope they can pull this off.

  17. LAX January 9, 2012

    I hate to Agree with The Great Lacfronce.

  18. RichnBlack11(LIKE BEY) January 9, 2012

    She looks so cute

  19. TruthTeller January 9, 2012

    @Demi
    Samantha doesn’t have a choice.
    She has to talk about Rihanna if she wants her blogs to not be a flop.

    Look at her most commented posts. #1 Rihanna, #2 Rihanna, #3 Rihanna.

    Even despite the fact that she tried to force Ivy Blue dowsn people’s throat yesterday by keeping the post at the top of his page all day long yesterday, it still couldn’t keep up with Rihanna’s posts.

    Rihanna= So much power in her name.

  20. gaaglooo!!! January 9, 2012

    Je me demande tout simplement si ce film va finir par voir le jour un de ces 4 lolll!!!

  21. Demi January 9, 2012

    @ Truthteller

    I know, It seems kind of ironic that her so called “hate” of Rihanna is actually doing wonders of keeping her Relevant. It’s like if he doesn’t put a rihanna post her blog will be like DEAD *sounds of Crickets*

  22. WHUT January 9, 2012

    @Christina’s coming who gon check me boo!!

    The Queen is giving us raw authentic passion-filled BAWSE acting GOD in these clips!!! Stay FURIOUS!!

  23. WHUT January 9, 2012

    KIIIII @ Truth I noticed that too every time I had a chance to peep in here yesterday the b**** had Blue Ivy at the TOP of the page! Today she even added a few must sees and Methuselah still cant #WIN on her own blog!! LOLOLOL!!!!!!

    ^^^^^^Well the HBIC of course.

  24. ChristinasCOMING January 9, 2012

    @ WHUT

    You just proved how delusional you are baby! She is nothing near raw or authentic. I feel so sorry for you delusional brainwashed teens thinking that being a s**, singles selling artist turned overactor makes you some kind of Goddesss. By no means is she a queen on any degree. Come back down to earth sweetheart…it’s a clear day just land!

    The only reason why she was cast in this movie is because they’re going to use her name alone to capitalize off it.

  25. Kerry Johnson January 9, 2012

  36. Lax January 10, 2012

    @YELLOW,,,,,Yesssssssssss It is hard to wrap your mind
    around all that she has done this pass year. I mean to
    Tour, Feature Movie And then all of the Other Things
    she Accxomplished, Dam i would be Pissy & Bitter as
    Hell too if i wasn’t Riding Rihanna’s Cruiseliner too.
    Especiall when you Read the Things People or saying
    about Bey and her Baby on TMZ, SR And other Outlets
    Daaaaaaaam! People just do not believe she gave
    Birth like she claim, i mean it has so many Elements
    that just do not add up, but i want get THEM LOONEYS
    Worked up AFTER ALL It don’t take nothing but a Spark
    To set their TIMID ASSES OFF You know! And with RIHANNA
    AND TAKES Off her new FEATURE MOVIE Getting ready to
    hit the full promotion mode all around the GLOBE This will
    be something that will keep the “LOONEY’S F*%*%* ALL THE
    WAY UP FOR THE REST OF 2012, SMILING AND ENJOYING
    THE FEEL TO THE FACT THAT RIHANNA Is getting ready
    to hit the BIG SCREENS In class and style with her ACTING CHOPS
    FRONT AND CENTER STILL YET ANOTHER TERRITORY WHERE MANY
    HAS DARED TO GO AT THIS STAGE IN THEIR CAREERS. Action Packed
    and Big Budget this is enough to let the air out of the “LOONEY ‘S”
    FROM Now on. I hope this will make them go some place and set waaaaay in the back of the stadium where they rightfully belong. And the nerves of a “LOONEY” Telling me that i don’t know the Definition of a FLOP, OH BUT I DO!
    FLOP= LOONEY’S WHO CRIES AND SCREAM LIKE A DOG
    IN HEAT EACH AND EVERY TIME RIHANNA REACHES A NEW MILESTONE IN HER CAREER. AND EACH AND EVERY TIME RIHANNA DOES GREAT
    IN ANYTHING!

  37. Just Me January 10, 2012

    $200 Million Dollar budget with Rhianna, what a waste of money..I hope a big name is in this film.

  38. Lax January 10, 2012

    @JUST ME,,,,,There is a Big Name In the Movie and it’s
    Rihanna Bad Ass Fenty! Hide and watch Rihanna do
    her part to make “Battleship” Come alive on the big
    Screens all around the Globe, this will be nothing short
    of Epic Just like his other money Making Flicks, Hancock
    and Transformer Flicks Read about them and become
    Smarter & Wiser.
