Battleship Australian Premiere in Sydney with Rihanna

Battleship Australian Premiere in Sydney


Global superstar Rihanna was in Sydney today for the Australian premiere of Battleship.

The Barbadian singer is taking a step back with her music and wants to focus more on her film career following the filming of Battleship. The promotion started with a world premiere in Japan and has now finally arrived in Sydney.

It wasn’t just Rihanna that walked the red carpet tonight. Battleship co-stars Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Brooklyn Decker (Just Go With It) also made the long trip to Sydney, as well as the film’s producer Peter Berg.

As I was leaving  I walked into Spice Girl Mel B and her husband Stephen Belafonte at the entrance who were rushing to make it into the venue on time.

The guests:

Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker and producer Peter Berg. Other celebrities walking the red carpet tonight included Spice Girl Mel B, Wendell Sailor, Erin McNaught and Charli Delany.

The film:

Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane.
Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander) and Jeffrey Silver (300). The film is written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (Red).
The battle for Earth begins at sea.

The cast:

Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgård, Tadanobu Asano and more.
