Rihanna in Universal Pictures' 'Battleship'

*As we’ve reported, superstar singer Rihanna has part in the upcoming Summer tentpole film “Battleship.”

As Shadow and Act has pointed out, in the trailer, RiRi is just barely seen. If you blink you’ll miss her. This lead to speculation that perhaps her role was miniscule at best.

Well, not so fast.

If you’re wondering, the live action adaptation of Hasbro’s naval combat board game, “Battleship,” opens May 18th.
