Rihanna will make her big acting debut when the new sci-fi action flick “Battleship” hits theaters next year … and yesterday, the second official trailer for the movie featuring the Pop star hit the web.

Unlike the first trailer released over the summer, which only featured a quick glimpse of Rihanna (Seriously, if you blinked, you would have missed it!) … this new trailer shows the singer getting in on the action, gun in hand, as a strong, capable Marine helping protect the world from invading aliens.

According to IMDB, “Battleship,” which also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch and Brooklyn Decker, is “an epic action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.”

Check out the new trailer below:

“Battleship” hits theaters May 18th 2012!
