Witness Rihanna’s Big Hollywood Debut
Rihanna looks tough in the international poster for her big screen movie debut. The 24-year-old changed her trashy, unclassy graments for a machine gun and army fatigues, and I like her image I must admit. Though there’s a common thing between Rihanna and her Battleship character US Navy officer Raikes – love of tattoos. Rihanna who was once pretty good went all bad in the poster donning US Navy uniform and…a skull and crossbones tattoos.
On her role in Battleship Rihanna said:
I just want to pick films that are wise for me and roles that I can pull off, nothing that is too big for me.”
Talking about her plans to make a name for herself in the movie business, Rihanna said in a recent interview:
I love doing movies now. It’s something I want to do more of.”
Battleship is an upcoming science fiction naval war film based on the game by Hasbro, the company that made Transformers.
The film is being directed by Peter Berg and will be released by Universal Pictures. Except Rihanna, the movie stars Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, and Brooklyn Decker.
Rihanna seems to have impressed Battleship director Peter Berg as he said:
She was great. She has a very strong part. I was surprised no one had ever thought to hire Rihanna. I was a huge fan of her videos. Obviously she’s sexy, but she had this real intensity. I’m like, “Someone’s going to get her.”
I’ve always believed in musicians as actors. I had great success with Tim McGraw in Friday Night Lights and The Kingdom. Musicians have been acting since Frank Sinatra won an Oscar for From Here to Eternity. Barbra Streisand, Kris Kristofferson, the late Whitney Houston, I thought, was tremendous in The Bodyguard. As recently as Mariah Carey in Precious, she was great.”
Battleship is due for release in the US on May 18.
Meanwhile the movie has already got some reviews. One of them, the tough one, was said by James Cameron. The billionaire blockbuster filmmaker spoke about the upcoming Battleship movie in a pretty harsh way while an interview with the German website Spiegel Online:
We have a story crisis. Now they want to make the Battleship game into a film. This is pure desperation. Everyone in Hollywood knows how important it is that a film is a brand before it hit theaters. If a brand has been around, Harry Potter for example, or Spider-Man, you are light years ahead. And there lies the problem. Because unfortunately these franchises are become more ridiculous. Battleship. This degrades the cinema.”
That would be pretty interesting to watch RiRi in this movie. Though I know that she won’t surprise me. You’d better work on your love triangle with that messy Chris Brown and your trashy style. And your too sexed up image.
