Where Is Rihanna In The New ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ Trailer?
Blink & you’ll miss her! Rihanna is only in the new Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets for a split second, but the stunning entertainer clearly steals the show.
Based on the highly popular French comic book series, the science fiction film is set in the 28th century and follows special operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) who are trying to maintain the order of the universe. Under orders from their commander (Clive Owen), the duo embarks on a mission to Alpha, an intergalactic city where diverse species share their technology and resources for the betterment of all. The ever-expanding metropolis is also home to sinister forces that jeopardize the future of mankind. Rounding out the cast includes Kris Wu, John Goodman, and Ethan Hawke.
In the $180 million dollar film, Rihanna stars as Bubble, a shapeshifting nightclub entertainer. We don’t know much else about her role, but we did get a glimpse of the sultry megastar transforming into a sexy nurse costume. At CinemaCon earlier this week, the Anti singer’s co-star Dane DaHaan said of her role, “Rihanna’s part is so crazy, it’s so awesome. I worked with her the first two weeks of the shoot, and whenever I told anybody what I was going to be doing, their jaws were on the floor and they were so jealous. And that’s all I can say.” We also know that she does some sort of routine in a chair that made DaHann raise his eyebrows.
Rihanna is on a role with her various appearances in films and on television. She just stared as Marion Crane in Bates Motel and she will appear in the forthcoming all-female Ocean’s Eleven reboot, Ocean’s 8.
Luc Besson’s vision will be coming to the big screen on July 21, 2017.
