The new sci-fi movie is based on a French graphic novel and will feature a star-studded cast, including the likes of Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen and Dane DeHaan.
Earlier this year, Rihanna's Home co-star Jim Parsons heaped praise on the Bajan star, describing her as "an excessively warm person".

The duo appeared alongside each other in the computer-animated movie, in which she plays a pre-teen girl named Tip.

Recalling the experience of working with Rihanna, Jim shared: "It was wonderful. She's an excessively warm person, a very funny and quick-witted person.

"We had never met before, and I was taken aback at what a wonderful sparring partner she was, both in conversation and to work with, immediately.
