At this point, it seems beyond our mental capacity to imagine how this will play out. But finally, we've got our first look at Rihanna on set, dressed in Navy duds and ready to kick some alien ass.
ScreenCrave has shared three pictures of the singer-turned-actress on set, including the gem above. Lord only knows how she has time to style that hair into curling tufts descending from her hat. Though maybe she's on to something. If her battleship doesn't get sunk, maybe the aliens will be intrigued by her sexy ways, and as they take over the world, she'll be saved!
This flick almost falls into the so-ridiculous-sounding-it-must-be-awesome category, but we'll continue to wonder -- does Universal really believe they'll make their cash back on this? Do they know something we don't? If so, they better release something intriguing soon, or Battleship will have to battle 2 years worth of derision alongside those pesky sea aliens.
The film will hit theaters on May 18, 2012.
