In Peter Berg's upcoming action/adventure film Battleship, Rihanna will make her acting debut as naval officer Raikes, a weapons specialist. She will star opposite Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, and Brooklyn Decker.

The movie will revolve around a naval fleet that has to do battle with an intergalactic threat known as The Regents, but with eye-candy as stunning as Rihanna in the film, the plot really is an afterthought. And now, courtesy of Digital Spy, we have three brand-new images of Rihanna in her first-ever movie role. You can thank us later.

Battleship will be released in the US on May 18.
