It’s interesting that Hasbro President and CEO Brian Goldner is in active discussions with Paramount Pictures over a fourth Transformers movie considering the company had lower earnings than expected for the third quarter.

Granted, Transformers: Dark of the Moon brought in $1.19 billion dollars world wide, which is pretty much like printing money for the company. Goldner didn’t speak on anything concrete, but hopes that he will have something to announce by the time the Q4 report arrives.

If you are worried that Hasbro will disappear from the movie marque, keep in mind that Clue, Monopoly, Micronauts, Candyland, and Stretch Armstron are still on the plate.

  1. I don’t see how any of those board games can become a big success like the very popular franchises like Transformers and GI Joe.Those two franchises based on action figures for young boys are on a whole other level then a film based on a board game.Does anyone seriously believe that any of them will become a box office success like the current trend of comic book films,Popular Novels,Action Figures based films,Sequels,Reboots or even prequels?

    I have not once seen nor heard of any movie based on a board game catching fire and becoming a billion dollar success in the movie theaters.The board game films are in the same shoes as game based films but they’re more on the bottom pile.They’re more likely to flop then rake in the huge millions thus by making their money back.

    I’ve seen the movie poster for the movie Battleship and I highly doubt it’s going to be beating the Avengers or Spider-man in the box office or the other popular known franchise that are hoping to lure the young teens.Who even plays board games now a days any more? Everyone is either playing games on their Iphones or X-Box360 if not PS3.

    • I know a lot of people that play boardgames. It’s very hipster now, especially some of the wierd German games. Incidentally, the 1985 Clue movie was brilliant, though I don’t know how it faired in the theaters.
