If you didn't facepalm yourself into a concussion after seeing Peter Berg's Battleship trailer, consider yourself lucky. The film, which is billed as an action-packed thriller, boasted aliens, a "game board" shot, and weaponry that looked like pieces from the classic Hasbro board game.  

While you may or may not have seen pop princess Rihanna delivering a catchy one-liner in the clip we posted a few weeks ago, here's a new image released of the Barbados ambassador wielding (read: standing near) a boat-mounted mini-gun. It's nice to see the "Umbrella" star spreading her wings to make her film debut as Petty Officer Raikes, but the fact that she's in this movie doesn't move this to box office blockbuster status — even if badass Liam Neeson's in it.

Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Josh PenceAlexander Skarsgard, and the aforementioned Liam Neeson star in what is sure to be a belly flop of a film, due out May 18, 2012.
