Dwayne Johnson Tweets Early Look (Sort Of, Not Really) At His Role In 'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation'So, the first trailer for the $200 million "Battleship" arrived last week and yes, it was awful. For a movie that is supposed to be about an alien invasion or something, it starts off with a shot of Brooklyn Decker's boobs and gets into some kind of bad boy/good girl romance tale before getting to Captain Liam Neeson telling his crew to fire all their weapons at the incoming creatures. But missing in all this was any real face time with Rihanna, the pop star who is making her movie debut in the blockbuster film.

Dwayne Johnson Tweets Early Look (Sort Of, Not Really) At His Role In 'G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation'



So, the first trailer for the $200 million "Battleship" arrived last week and yes, it was awful. For a movie that is supposed to be about an alien invasion or something, it starts off with a shot of Brooklyn Decker's boobs and gets into some kind of bad boy/good girl romance tale before getting to Captain Liam Neeson telling his crew to fire all their weapons at the incoming creatures. But missing in all this was any real face time with Rihanna, the pop star who is making her movie debut in the blockbuster film.

Well, the folks over at Rihanna Daily have nabbed a frame and it looks like the "Pon De Replay" singer is going to turn into a remorseless killing machine and/or the sexiest Navy member ever. Either way, we're still not sold on Rihanna here but in a movie based on a board game, the performance of the singer will be the least of our worries in terms of suspension of belief. "Battleship" opens on May 12, 2012.


Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson is getting into the swing of things on "G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation." The actor hit Twitter to send out a photo as he trains up with the tease: "Found my gun today! M249 SAW. Guess who/what I envision in my crosshairs?" Probably the villain Firefly, played by Ray Stevenson, we're guessing. Frankly, Johnson and Stevenson are the only two reasons we marginally care about this sequel and kind of wish the movie just starred those two. But alas, Channing Tatum, Lee Byung-hun, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, RZA and D.J. Cotrona will be along for the ride in the Jon Chu-directed film which lands on June 29, 2012.
