Rihanna has smacked Cera in a new red band trailer for film "This is the End." The smacking comes when actor Michael Cera plays a character in the video who gets a little too hands on with the pop star, and she hits him to teach him a lesson.

The video shows numerous celebrities such as Seth Rogen, Michael Cera, as well as James Franco and Rihanna - all whom appear to on-screen to play cartoon versions of themselves.

The movie's storyline is that a party is being held at James Franco's house, and it gets wild and out of control. Although everyone is having a good time things soon escalate and things take a turn for the worse when it's revealed to the partygoers that the apocalypse is coming.

The trailer has gone down well, but by far the most attention has gone towards the smacking that Rihanna gives to Cera in the video.

In the trailer video Cera approaches Rihanna at the party, and then reaches out and touches Rihanna from behind in an inappropriate way.

Cera, who played the title character's would-be boyfriend in ''Juno,'' is in final negotiations to star in the adventure romance ''Scott Pilgrim's Little Life.''

The inappropriate move results in a strong reaction from the "Umbrella" singer, who cocks her arm back and smacks Cera hard in the face.

"Don't ******* touch my bumper, *****," shouts Rihanna, as she hits Cera.

The news comes as news has emerged that Chris Brown may be preparing a duet album with girlfriend Rihanna.

The 23 year old singer, Brown, recently spoke about the possibility of him and Rihanna, 25, collaborating on an entire album together after numerous collaborations between the pair: "[That] might be crazy," Brown told MTV News recently. "You gotta wait though. X and then you get the Rihanna and Chris Brown album!"

Brown is releasing his sixth studio album "X" and has revealed that the pair would release a single together called "Put It Up."

"So we did 'Nobody's Business' for her album, and then I wrote a song, it's called 'Put It Up.' It's more of an R&B record," Brown told MTV.

"I wanted to do an R&B record with Rihanna because I didn't want it to be the same four-on-the-floor, pop. At the end of the day, that's what they expect from us, so I wanted to do more of a record that nobody really heard her sing on as far as that genre."

He also said, "It's different. Me, I'm in the studio like [a] ball of energy; I don't really write … I never write, it's all off of what's up here. Whether it be rapping or me singing, I'll go sing a melody, come up with a concept and write it that fast and we'll knock out the song in like an hour. … With her work ethic, it's the same- she's just as liberal and vibrant. She goes in the studio and it's easy for her, like it's nothing."
