Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker will hit MTV’s airwaves Monday, April 30, at 7:56 p.m. ET to premiere the exclusive clip, after which they will stick around for a meaty 30 minutes of Q&A on MTV.com hosted by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz.

  • Fans can get in on the action immediately by submitting video or text questions via MTV.com or via Twitter (using @MTVNews, hashtag #MTVFirst or #AskBattleship). During “MTV First,” the four stars will also answer your Twitter questions and dish on the very latest news.

“Battleship” promises to be a true summer blockbuster in every way. It is an action-packed event movie with an A-list and very attractive cast.

“The movie is really the story of a younger brother (Kitsch) trying to grow up and be a man like [his older brother (Skarsgård)],” director Peter Berg told MTV News. “There just happens to be an alien invasion in the middle of it.”

The “Friday Night Lights” director also promised that despite the “Transformers” comparisons, his film is “completely different.”

“I think ‘Transformers’ is awesome,” Berg said. “I think [director Michael] Bay did an incredible job with that film and I think when you sit through 4 minutes of ‘Battleship,’ you’ll realize that they are two completely different experiences.

“Obviously, our big bosses who are concerned with making their money back have a vested interested in attaching themselves to other successful films. We don’t think about that; we think about making our own movie, and I’m pretty confident that whether you love ‘Battleship’ or not, the issue of comparison to other films is pretty irrelevant.”

The film hits theaters across the country May 18.

  • Rihanna and Jay-Z will be the two headline acts in the popular music lineup for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The pair will star in the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 2012 (June 23-24) a month before the Games, said organizers of the Olympics cultural festival, releasing the program at a news conference today. Comedians Stephen Fry and Tim Minchin will be among other entertainers cropping up in venues across Britain.

“There will be absolutely something for everyone: from Beethoven to Jay-Z, from Shakespeare to Mike Leigh,” Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said at the news conference in the Tower of London. Leigh is a film director.

The festival organizers conveyed the size and scope of the event.

“The London 2012 Festival will be the biggest cultural celebration in our lifetime,” said Royal Opera House Chief Executive Tony Hall, who chairs the Cultural Olympiad board.

Hall said more than 18 million people had already taken part in 9,000 performances and almost as many workshops.

The U.K. is rolling out dozens of arts events around the Games, which run from July 27 to Aug. 12. Some have been long planned and some commissioned as part of a four-year, 97 million pound ($157 million) cultural program.

Other headliners of Hackney Weekend — set to draw an estimated 100,000 fans — are Florence + the Machine, Jack White, David Guetta and Tinie Tempah.
