Pony Show’s Peter Berg Directs Rihanna’s Much Anticipated First Film, Summer 2012 Blockbuster ‘Battleship’

In this behind the scenes glimpse of Rihanna’s first film performance, she recounts the real female Navy officer who helped her create her character, Raikes, in the film. “My character…is a weapons officer who is not afraid of anything. She loves weapons, she knows them.” Her true life Navy collaborator advised the actress on everything from military lingo to weapons handling to military postures like standing at ease, attention and saluting.
“She’s fearless, she’s one of the boys,” Rihanna notes. “It was really fun just to explore that mind set.”
