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!
The Battleship wares dive into Macy's and specialty stores

If you were alive/coherent at the end of the second millenium, then you probably remember that little fuzzy, gremlin-looking toy they called a Furby.
Well, Hasbro has decided to bring these alien creatures back from the toy-beyond to creep out a whole NEW generation of children!!
Yes, they were cute, but not very cuddly (their inner robotics were pointy and painful!) and you couldn’t really turn them off…
We totally caught them watching us in the nighttime!
We won't know what new powers these Furbies hold until their release in the fall…right around the same time the Mayans predicted the end of the world, RIGHT???

That's right, the Ouija Board movie is back on Universal's production slate after being dropped last August due to budgetary concerns!
Michael Bay is still producing through his Platinum Dunes banner (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Amityville Horror), but in order to scale down the massive
explosions and giant robot ghosts budget, the studio enlisted the help of the guy behind low-cost hits like Paranormal Activity and Insidious.
Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions has taken the cost from a whopping $100 million to a measly $5 million! Does that mean we're in store for another "found footage" film? Possibly about a couple curious kids playing the game and recording what happens…?
