Check out behind-the-scenes footage of Coldplay and Rihanna’s ‘Princess Of China’ video.
We could say “Watch footage of Rihanna and Coldplay tying their shoes,” and we’d still have you in the palm of our hands. We don’t blame your (and our) obsessive excitement about this killer collabo, though, and judging by the recent behind-the-scenes footage from their forthcoming “Princess Of China” video, this ish is going to be effing epic!
Watch behind-the-scenes footage of Coldplay and Rihanna’s “Princess Of China” video after the jump.
Right off the bat we get a firsthand peek at what goes into making this masterpiece — lots of green screen. But then Rihanna offers a quick synopsis of what “Princess Of China” is really all about: “[It's] like a movie trailer for an old kung fu film.” Clips capture the crew, extras and background dancers all hard at work, but soon we get a sneak peek of Ri and Coldplay’s Chris Martin strapped into flying harnesses for fancy samurai fighting choreography. We also see Chris preparing for a sword fighting scene! (Like we said, EPIC!)
While we’re excited for the full video, we’re mostly obsessed with Rihanna’s portrayal of a gorg, multiarmed goddess decked out with clawlike nails. (Remember when she tweeted that intimidating pic of herself in character?) #Halloween2012
