And the collaborations continue!
Jay-Z's Rocawear label is teaming up with Hasbro to launch a Battleship capsule collection.
The line of men’s and women’s tee shirts, polos and denim, fuses Battleship imagery with well known Jay-Z lyrics such as Show Me What You Got, 99 Problems and Bring ‘Em Out just to name a few.
We're LOLing so hard at the "99 problems but my ship ain't one". So punny!

What would the action-packed Battleship look like if Wes Anderson directed it??
NOTHING like the explosive summer blockbuster we've seen promos of!! LOL!
A couple of hipsters decided it's be funny to dream up Anderson's version of the film and slap it on YouTube. The result is this well-crafted video (above).
Sure, it's good for some LOLs at the action movie's inspiration. HOWEVES, their Anderson mocking is only meh.
The REAL Battleship comes out this Friday.
Anderson's next film, Moonrise Kingdom, hits screens on May 25.

Peter Berg may have been paranoid…but Rihanna is safe and sound because of it!
The Battleship director took extra precaution to protect the singer from shark attacks.

If Alexander Skarsgard isn't deemed Sexiest Man Alive this year, WE might protest!! LOL!!!
His divine supremacy was in full form at the Battleship premiere Thursday night. We can't even begin to imagine the number of almost heart attacks that took place.
Just look at him (more pics below)! Mmph!! We would just loooove a bite on our neck right about now, ha!
What a way to christen the newly named Nokia Theatre!!

Finally some competition!!
