Watch Rihanna As Marion Crane In Chilling ‘Bates Motel’ Trailer

Somewhere in between blocking Drakes kiss at the VMAs and eyeing Sandra Bullocks fries while shooting Oceans Eight,Rihannasomehow found the time to check into Bates Motel for a short and likely murderous stay.

The first trailer featuring the singer for the A&E series upcoming fifth season debuted online Tuesday and, unsurprisingly,Rihannasteals the damn show with just seconds of screen time.

Rihanna joins the final season of the contemporary prequel to Alfred Hitchcocks Psycho as Marion Crane, the iconic role originated by Janet Leigh. Marion might not be around for a long time(shower, scream, drain, remember?), but that doesnt mean it wont be a good time.

Released exclusively on Entertainment Weekly, the trailer shows Rihannas character arriving amid a rainstorm just like in the original movie and meeting neighborhood psycho, Norman Bates, at the check-in desk of the infamous motel.

Its this collision of Bates Motel storytelling and then Marion Crane showing up into that, executive producer Kerry Ehrin told EW. [Normans]in a very fragile and lonely place, and Marion Crane is a charismatic woman, shes super present when shes with him and shes very attractive all those things are exactly what he needs right at this moment.

And the rest is history.
