Rihanna has a series of movies coming out soon, including a role in the upcoming female version of Ocean’s Eleven, titled Ocean’s Eight, and today (November 10th) fans can see her in the new trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
Rihanna’s character is supposed to be an alien stripper who works at a bar run by Ethan Hawke’s character. She appears in the trailer for just a moment at the 1:17 mark. In the brief snippet, she approaches Valerian (Dane DeHaan), who appears to be at her place of employment. Rihanna wears a sleeveless tuxedo costume, but when she removes her bowler hat she transitions from the more masculine ensemble into a Marilyn Monroe-type of seductress with a shimmering silver dress and blonde hair.
The film stars DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, who are sent to investigate a galactic empire and battle aliens along the way. Directed by Luc Besson, famous for The Fifth Element and other films, Valerian hits theaters in July 2017.
