Rihanna will be making her first acting debut in the upcoming movie Battleship. She plays Petty Officer Second Class Cora Raikes in the film. Some of her co-stars include True Blood actor Alexander Skarsgård and Friday Night Lights’ Taylor Kitsch. After receiving tremendous ratings in the United Kingdom and Japan, the film has generated quite a buzz in the U.S.
Inspired by the Hasbro board game, Battleship depicts the lives of officers aboard a fleet naval of ships as they are forced to thwart an aggressive alien invasion. Directed by actor and writer Peter Berg, Battleship is filled with complex visual and digital effects. Consequently, part of the film was shot in front of a green screen.
In an interview with Rajeev Masand in Tokyo, Kitsch described his excitement for the film’s release and the challenges he faced during production. “It’s just more time, more patience really, you have to expect the unexpected,” he said. Exceeding all expectations, Battleship is expected to make an impressive splash in the box office on May 18.battleship, Rihanna
