Rihanna is making her first big screen debut in the action packed film “Battleship.” In the film Rih plays a Weapons Officer named “Raikes” with a tough, kick ass attitude who gives orders to the rest of the guys. We aren’t surprised one bit that she took on a tough role for her first film.
During her training she had to learn appropriate military lingo, weapon handling, and how to stand at attention and salute. Watch Rihanna as she goes behind the scenes of the film below complete with a short, red cropped cut, camoflauge gear, and military boots.
The Battleship film hits theaters May 2012.
What do you think about Rihanna’s Battleship character? Do you like that she chose a dominating role or would you have rather seen her play a role that was a little more submissive?
