Hot Shots: Rihanna Goes ‘Black’ For ‘Battleship’

Published: Tuesday 10th Apr 2012 by David

Australia welcomed its doors to Rihanna last night, in town for the premiere of her new movie ‘Battleship‘.

Still sporting Cassie‘s trademark look (after borrowing Rita Ora‘s) the Grammy winner was remarkably understated at the event which also saw co-star Alexander Skarsgard take to the Red Carpet.

  4. MC&TB4LIFE April 10, 2012

THANK GOD FOR RIHANNA COMING TO AMERICA AND PUSH THE ENVELOPE TO SHOW THESE B****** HOW ITS DONE, EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHES IS GOLD AND THATS WHY GRAPE JUICE DOESNT LIKE HER BECAUSE SHE COMES FROM THE CARIBBEAN AND COME MAKE IT BIG, UR GIRL BEY IS ON A DECLINE, SHE’S THE QUEEN OF SWAGGER-JACKING, RIHANNA IS A BAD BISH AND I WILL CONTINUE TO LOVE AND SUPPORT MY CARIBBEAN GIRL #JAMAICAINDAHOUSE

  5. DCSFINEST April 10, 2012

    I’m a Rihanna fan as well, but this is why the BEEHIVES go in. Nowhere in the comments did anyone mention anything bad about Rihanna, but someone throws Bee’s name out and all hell brakes loose. Oh well, you’re on your own with this one MC&TB4LIFE.

  6. RichnBlack11(Beyonce keep em MAD) April 10, 2012

    Not using this look at all, riri what’s going on boo….and the c*** jack Rita and Cassie no shade and y’all know it.

  7. Ugh April 10, 2012

    I still don’t see this movie doing that well.

  8. andy April 10, 2012

    I like Rihanna but if she sees how stupid she looks with all that motherfuckin hair covering one eye. I wonder what she would do if she really had one eye could she deal. If she thinks that the one eye as on the back of a dollar bill will bring her luck with this movie then she is a fool. There are plenty of people all over the world who do not like science fiction movies.

  9. Jessica April 10, 2012

    She still looks like a crackhead hot mess!!! YUCK!!! CRACKANNA movie looks like crap, this girl can’t act for s***, her Music is a FAIL, Movie is a FAIL, all around joke!!! SMH!!!

  10. ♛ POP Royalty ♛ (Rude Boy) April 10, 2012

    @Richandblack :

    some stuffs the hive should not talk about in rihanna’s posts, one of them is someone swagga jackin’ someone else , cuz beyonce’s hands aren’t clean either, ask J.Lo , Shakira , etc ….. , K b**** ?! 😉

    Peace.

    @ANDY & The Fish Heads Who tries to Ride Her Back
    We know that the Movies isn’t going to be S*** in Yo Books
    That is why this Movie is Based Entirely on the “CLASSIC”
    Board Game “Battleship” Love it or hate it Because it too
    Will serve as a Reminder that all who keep abusing their
    Claws & Paws Aganist “The Caribbean” or in for the Thrill
    of a life time when it hits all over the place.

    Hmmmmm if any one and i mean any person was in this
    Flick other than Rih these Fish heads would be jumping
    with joy. Funnnnn and a blessing all at the same time to
    see that they gave Rih a chance to get her Acting Chops
    on.

  12. Lax April 10, 2012

    And if this Movie serves as nothing else it has been a great Promo
    for all who or in it thus far, and the proof will be in the final count for
    that first week sales when it hits the States.

  13. andy April 10, 2012

    @DEDE,,,Yep we know we or not fighting because of what you say in a way
    we love what you say. I am reminded of a Fight that Rihanna had with “SR’
    Where “SR” made the comment about her forgiving Chris and Rih told her that
    she acted like she was the one who got her ass beat…

    To further her agenda “SR’ Commented back to Rihanna Saying, this,,,,All it took for a Black Blogger to finally get some Attention from Rihanna to which Rih said:
    “SR” Some how i think u wanted to be on that Leash in S&M . Rihanna further
    Stated: I got a Feeling, Black Blogs White Blogs, “YALL ALL TURN ME ON” Now that my friends is the Quote that “BROKE THE CAMELS BACK” Spoken by a real lie
    ‘HBIC”, And you Broke, Busted, Lying ass heffers will D-E-A-L!!!!

  23. Lax April 10, 2012

    Spoken by a real life “HBIC” And if what she is doing with her career is making you
    act up then we already know why, bytches!!!!

  29. RichnBlack11(Beyonce keep em MAD) April 10, 2012

    @pop to somewhat of a degree I would say Beyonce had similar looks to the ones you mention but unlike your girl Rihanna she str8 jacked Rita and Cassie due to her insecurities, and by the way I’m a RICH b**** ….HAVE A BLESSED DAY 🙂

  30. Lax April 10, 2012

    @The all the little di*K people who or bitter with Rihanna and her Navy Because they don’t have much to work with,,,NEWS BULLITIN!!!!!!!!!!

    @Lax

    What the hell are you saying? There is no one here talking bad at the other Navy members just you because you won’t let people have their opinions.

    Also I have a mouth and I can say what ever I want. So don’t tell people to watch what they say about an entertainer.

    You make no sense I’m so done with you

    Bye or maybe I’ll be back

  35. RulerOfZamundaa April 10, 2012

    Are you serious? Rihanna taking from Rita Ora? Rita Ora has no sense of individuality. Watching her RIP video it SCREAMS Rihanna. Every look Rita Ora is doing has already been done by Rihanna. Rih Rih is in her own lane and I wish you would stop comparing her to no talent having Cassie and no individuality Rita Ora. Give props where props are due! If you’re going to be a blogger don’t be bias in your opinions leave that up to the people who come here to enjoy the site. Im tired of every post is bashing Rihanna shes doing More than CASSIE has EVER Done…. and lets see if Rita Ora progresses in the USA

    Rita has had that look for the past 8 to 10 months Rihanna stole it and did it right before Rita song came out to make it seems like Rita was trying to be like her due to her insecurities and Jay spending more time on Rita. Get over it ….it is what it is

    negative b/s that is sprewed by her haters. This is saying to yo ass to

    @rich and black :

    hi b****.

    having similar looks = copying.

    beyonce is a copycat too , k ?

    you should not be that brave when you talk about originality or someone is swagga jackin’ someone while having a beyonce gravatar cuz we all know beyonce and originality ” if we talk in general , not only looks” can not go together. and this is me putting it in the nicest way 🙂

    sweet dreams 😉

    @Lax

    You dumb f*** got this s*** twisted. Did in my comments say I hated Rihanna? Show me where I said I hate or dislike Rihanna. I spoke about her hair covering her eye and about people not liking science fiction movies and that is my opinion. You have your opinions about Rihanna and so can others.

    The $450-Million face of failure!

    “Camp-Fenty” will try their very best to dance around, dig-under, distract attention away from, and totally avoid the truth, but I’ll refuse to let them..

    “Battleship” will have a final “get-to-theater” cost of $450-Million. “Battleship” is projected to do $45-Million first week U.S. and $125-Million, in-total, U.S.

    In order for it to NOT be a “failure”, “Battleship” will have to return 1.45 X KNOWN COSTS = 1.45 X $450-Million = $652.5-Million. And since $125-Million is said projected from U.S. screens, then $527-Million has to be returned from overseas/foreign screens.

    ..In order for “Battleship” to be a “success” it’ll have to return 1.75 X KNOWN COSTS =$787-Million. And using the projected numbers for U.S. totals, $662.5-Million will have to be returned from foreign screens.

    Just some perspective: “Battleship” will have to return OVER 1/2 $BILLION to NOT then be considered a “failure”..!!

    (again..) $500-Million = 1/2 $Billion…

    (yet again..) Rihanna will be the “$450-Million face” FAILURE..!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

    “Dag you mean to tell me that this movie have to bring in that much money from the overseas.”

    YUP..!! ..That’s EXACTLY what I’m saying..!!! Here are the pertinent links:

    1.) “Battleship” cost $200-Million to make: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1440129/business
    2.) “Battleship” JUST had an additional $50-Million in promotional costs added: deadline(dotcom)/2012/03/toldja-universal-rounds-up-promotional-partners-for-battleship
    3.) “Battleship” is projected to do $45-Million first week U.S. and $125 in-total U.S. : boxoffice(dotcom)/statistics/movies/battleship-2011?q=Battleship
    4.) “How much” does a movie really cost: investopedia(dotcom)/financial-edge/0611/Why-Movies-Cost-So-Much-To-Make.aspx#axzz1r782xjdB
    5.) “Metric” used as a “general rule of thumb” to gauge a movie’s profitability: deadline(dotcom)/2011/09/kagan-the-help-is-the-most-profitable-film-from-a-month-with-few-successes/) – For a movie NOT to fail, it’ll have to do more-than 1.45 X “known costs”. For a movie to succeed, it has to do more-than 1.75 X “known costs”!

    (again..) The final ‘get-to-theater’ costs are usually EQUAL TO the production cost. In the cast of “Battleship”, it has a $200-Million production cost. AND $50-Million was JUST added to the promotion budget! Based on that initial $200-Million, the final/get-to-theater cost will be $450-Million..!!!!

    !!Rihanna IS, without doubt, T-H-E best known name and face in “Battleship” – ergo: Rihanna will be the $450-Million face of failure..!!!!!

    You can’t/won’t be mistaken for a hater if you now say to yourselves: “This can’t possibly bode well for her ‘brand’, come time to tour, endorsement deals, or, if and when she’s offered another film role.”

    Peculiar thing the subconsciousness of the ‘discretionary-spending consumer’: Rihanna’s name and face will be associated with a $450-Million FFFFFFFAILURE..!!

    RIHANNA REEKS OF DISCONTENT AND FAILURE:

    1.) Almost wrecked Chris Brown’s career.
    2.) Almost wrecked Matt Kemp’s career.
    3.) Forced to resort to theft (of intellectual property) because Def Jam cut her budget: sued by Dave Lachapelle (had to pay out millions) and Philip Paulus.
    4.) The very-public face of the $450-Million “Battleship” “wreck-at-sea”..!!

Sorry honey singing to a track days are over and she is already being dethroned as she walks the red carpet it’s called talent something she knows nothing about….She’s boring!!!

    The Navy list the same damn 10 accomplishments rihanna has like b**** shut up already every knows but no one cares. Rita ora has more f****** individuality than RIRI OK BOO RIHANNA JACKS THE EUROPEAN STYLES OK . They is nothing original or fresh about rihanna who constantly makes the same type of music album after album every thing is just the same. Same type of s*** music , new hair, new level of classlessness.. Rihanna is very predictable she never seems to amuse people except her navy..

  81. Lax April 10, 2012

    @ass wipes, its clear that if Rihanna wasn’t the shits your scum bag
    asses would not be making comments. Shes the shits and have
    showed Beyonce ass all the way up, and it’s KILLING YO ASSES!!
    @the Other LAX, With the fukkkkkked up face and moose head
    You go and Bump Yourself, you Scum Bag.

    Beyonce isn’t even runing circles around Rita, i don’t know what you
    talking bout, you had better ask some body,,,,lol

    Rihanna is a Navy/army “Of One” and you scum bags will deal! Always trying
    to s*** talk Rihanna and she’s steady making hash out of your asses , Effortless!

    Ps The only thing “The Kannnnnnng” is running CIRCLES OUT OF is the
    Number of Hits she get on “That Grape Juice, Net”, thats the only thing shes running along with Diaper Duty for AUNTY RINANNA……With Blue”!!!
    The Kaaaaaang is trying so hard to get some traction, that is why shes releasing pictures all over the place with nothing but body shots to try and capture some of that MAGIC THAT IS FLOATING AROUND RIHANNA’S HEAD WITH HER MOIE PROMOTIONS AND ALL OF THIS JET SETTING RIHANNA IS DOING AND IT’S GETTING NEXT TO HER ASS, WORK KAAAAAANG AND TRY TO GET SOME OF THE “SPOTLIGHT” BACK ON YOUR WANT IT ALL ASS.

  82. Lax April 10, 2012

    Movie*
    Rihanna do not need any well wishes from Scum Bags, Because she already
    know what she’s about. And even with all of the bashing that is levied toward
    her she still seem to be able to find her footing and keep this party Jumping.
    And that is what make the haters so beside themselves because they can not
    stand it when Others get Shine and it’s not the Kaaaaang’s Ass.

    Rihanna is the reason tham many Scum Bags go from post to post trying their
    best to prove to the world that Beyonc ce is the best that the world has to offer and beyonce’s ass is far from being the best at anything, any more. Asele made Hash out of her ass and mopped the floor with it and she and the hive will deal.. The kaaaang is going to have to Double, triple down to out do RITA ORA, E VEN NOT TO MENTION THE “hbic” Rihanna!!!!!!

  83. Lax April 10, 2012

    Adele* made hash
    For Rihanna to be a “Caribbean” and raising sand like she is, that have
    made the world take notice of each and everything Rihanna touches and Do
    in her Career. She is not worried about who’s level shes on because she have
    REWROTE THE PLAY BOOK, AND SHE IS ON HER OWN LEVEL, NEWLY
    REFRESHED AND REVAMPED AND YOU SCUM BAGS WILL DEAL…JUST WAITING
    FOR THE NEXT POWER MOVE SHE WILL MAKE AFTER PROMOS FOR HER MOVIE SETTLES IN,,,,,PROMOS OR ON LOCK AND ON POINT….

    I DON’T Care about if others love or supports her, that’s neither here not there
    just as long as she’s working and getting her Groove on. And everybody with
    a working brain know this and see this. Why you all who dislike her is a very
    PERSONAL PROBLEM, OF YOURS NOT HER NAVY AND ME. And when i am
    singled out by the one who i see who’s writing negative bull s*** , why that is
    a telling story of the degree of hate that you have for her and it shines through like a sore thumb, you narrowed minded scum bags.

    You b**** about she didn’t get a number one album yet it’s clear that many who got #1 albums and made it through the mofo gate and fell dead on impact. What in the hell have you got to say about that you dirty bum bythes? What about the many artist who’s not on Rihanna’s level, the new gage to what should be the NORM, NOW,,,Yep just what i though you don’t have jack s*** to say to defend your bull s***, you dam Test Tube Babies, gutter rats ahd hood rats, and old ass fagggggggots….

    @LAX re: April 10, 2012 at 10:02 pm —

    “IT IS DRIVING ONE SCUM BAG SO NUTTY THAT THEY HAVE MADE THE MOVIE BE 450 MILLION AND IF THEY DON;T RECOUP THAT AMOUNT THEN THE MOVIE IS A TOTALLY LOSS, DUMB ASS SCUM BAG.”

    *raises “scum-bag hands ME! ME! ME! OVER HERE..!!*

    LAX, you could, at the very least, call me by my “official” “scum bag” name: X,Y,”and Z”.. Also, if you read any of the links I provided, you’d see for yourself that the “P/A” costs for a movie are AT LEAST EQUAL to the actual promotion budget for the film!!

    If a film cost, say, $50-Million to make, it’ll then cost, at the very least, that much to finally bring-it-to-theaters.. So if a film has a production budget of $50-Million, it’ll have a final “get-to-theater” cost of $100-Million..!!

    Here are some examples and definitions of the costs for a movie: http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2001/aug/31/artsfeatures Now, mind you, this article is OVER 10-years old. Needless to say: “EVERYTHING HAS GONE UP SINCE THEN”!!

    “Battleship” is close to “John Carter” in production costs, I found this article that’ll I think offers some perspective:

    “With an estimated production budget of $250 million, “John Carter” needs to generate at least $400 million in box office receipts to generate enough theater, home video and television revenue to cover the film’s production and promotion costs, Davenport & Co analyst Michael Morris estimated.”
    Here’s the link, read: reuters(dotcom)/article/2012/03/13/us-disney-film-idUSBRE82819920120313

    And I’ll close with material I’ve already referenced:

    “SNL Kagan, the financial analysis firm makes its projections based on a ratio that compares a film’s estimated revenue from all sources to the costs that Kagan can calculate — which DON’T INCLUDE distribution fees, overhead, interest, profit participation, and residuals. A movie with expected revenue 1.75 times higher than the known costs is projected to be a winner, while those with a ratio of at least 1.4 are on the bubble. Here, read: deadline(dotcom)/2011/09/kagan-the-help-is-the-most-profitable-film-from-a-month-with-few-successes/

    $200-Million = “Battleship” production cost. $50-Million = Just added to promotion costs – totaling $250-Million! THIS IS NOT INCLUDING THE FINAL PRINTS AND ADVERTISING (P/A) COSTS..!!!

    Let’s say that by some act of…”divine generosity”, this film’s distributors got it for free, or on consignment. Let’s also say “Battleship” needs no “advertising”, this means that $250-Million X 1.45 = $362.5-Million NOT TO BE CONSIDERED A FAILURE..!!
    And since $125-Million is projected to be returned from U.S. screens, it’ll then mean, for “Battleship” not to fail, it’ll have to do $237.5-Million from overseas/foreign screens!!
    ..And $250-Million X 1.75 = $437.5-Million for “Battleship” to be considered a “success/profitable”..!!

    And, as I’ve said, this $250-Million is NOT the “final” costs..!! The “final costs” are FAR MORE..!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!
