Battleship behind the scenes video lands online

A behind the scenes video for next summer's blockbuster hopeful Battleship has pitched up over at Entertainment Weekly (thanks to Slashfilm for the heads-up).

All the major players speak, including Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker and director Peter Berg.

We also get our first proper look at Rihanna in action in her first movie role: she wields all sizes of gun with conviction, but this footage still doesn't show us whether she can actually act or not.

On top of that, there are explosions galore: will this be one of 2012's guilty pleasures?

Check out the video for yourself below:

Battleship opens on 18 May 2012.
