Just because Alexander Ludwig, 20, who shot to fame with the wildly popular adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Woody Harrelson, and Lenny Kravitz, can't return to his role as the diabolical Cato for reasons that are obvioius to anyone who read / watched, that doesn't mean there aren't big things in store for the young actor.
The premise of Battleship is a fairly straightforward one: six years after NASA sends a signal into deep space looking to contact intelligent life, aliens come to Earth hell bent on world destruction, using the ocean as a launching point to carry out their plan.
Taylor Kitsch, 31, has built up a reputation for fighting aliens in this year's John Carter and Battleship, but that all seems like a walk in the park next to shooting love scenes with Blake Lively, 24, his leading lady in the new Oliver Stone flick, Savages, also starring Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and Emile Hirsch.
To celebrate her big screen debut, Rihanna, 24, wore a backless, flowy white gown to the Los Angeles premiere of Battleship, set to hit theaters on May 18. Rihanna plays Petty Officer Cora ‘Weps’ Raikes in the boardgame-turned-sci-fi-action-film, which co-stars Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard and Brooklyn Decke.
