The preview was a sneak peek of Luc Besson's upcoming sci-fi film, Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets, based on the French comic series Valérian and Laureline, which stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne as interstellar special agents. And, yup, Rihanna's in it too, playing a dancer in an alien bar run by Ethan Hawke. 

The chart-topping singer's introduction came when DeHaan requests a "retro" girl at Hawke's club and is sat down for a private show as a bowler-wearing dancer appears on stage, straddling a chair, Vulture reports.
