Oscar Watch: Rihanna's 'Battleship' Dialogue, All In One Post

Universal Pictures

Think you have what it takes to be the star of a major summer blockbuster? Repeat after me. "I don’t know." "Weird, man." "What?" "Yo, hey!" Now you too can be on your way to blockbuster stardom!

These are just a few of the lines pop superstar Rihanna had to recite for her role in ‘Battleship,’ Universal’s board-game-to-big-screen blockbuster that, well...let’s just say underperformed at the box office in its opening weekend.

Don’t blame Rihanna, though, she did her best with the strong-but-nearly-silent role of Petty Officer Cora 'Weps' Raikes, who comes to the aide of Lieutenant Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) when aliens invade off Hawaii’s coast. But she wasn't given a whole lot to work for.

Vulture captured every line of dialogue the pop singer spoke in 'Battleship' and suffice it to say, you could do this, too. Take this excerpt of eight consecutive lines she says in the film: "Boom." "Yeah!" "Get up!" "Let’s go!" "Go, go, go!" "Yes, sir." "Oh yes sir." "Awesome."

Awesome.

Here is the full list of Rihanna’s ‘Battleship’ soundbites. The Best Supporting Actress Oscar race starts.....now.
