Somewhere in between cavorting with Leonardo DiCaprio and coordinating jean outfits with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, Rihanna found time to voice a protagonist in a family movie. In Home, based on the the children’s book The True Meaning Of Smekday, Rihanna voices a teen named Tip who encounters the misfit alien Oh (Jim Parsons) and helps him hide from the people of his home planet Boov. The voice cast also includes Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez, because one pop star is never enough. Home opens in theaters everywhere on March 27, but The A.V. Club and Dreamworks Animation have an opportunity for you to catch the movie for free on March 24.
