Paul Feig to direct Play-Doh film

Movies based on toy brands and board games isn’t anything new. Hasbro’s Transformers, Battleship, Clue, and Ouija have all been adapted for the big screen. Last year, we saw Warner Bros launch their LEGO film franchise with The LEGO Movie, which now has a sequel and three spinoffs in the works. Now we are about to head back to the toy box as it has been announced that there will be a Play-Doh movie from 20th Century Fox film. And it will be directed by none other than Paul Feig (Bridesmaids).

Deadline reports that Fox has just sealed a deal with Hasbro for the live-action film based on the molding toy. Hasbro will produce with Chernin Entertainment and Feig’s Feigco banner.

Indominus Rex Tease Promo

Last month, we saw the tiniest sneak peek at the Indominus Rex, the terrifying new genetically engineered hybrid dinosaur making its big-screen debut in this summer’s Jurassic World. The film’s recent Super Bowl Spot also gave a glimpse at the new big baddie, which was created in the film by Hammond Creation Lab for the Jurassic Word theme park to be the most frightening dinosaur ever displayed.

On Saturday at the NY Toy Fair, Hasbro revealed their Jurassic World toy line, which included the first look at their new battery-operated Indominus Rex figure. Check out the photos here below, provided by Hasbro, of the new Indominus Rex, as well as all their Jurassic World toys, including figures, battle sets, and more for raptors like tyrannosaurus rex, stegasaurus, dilophosaurus, ceratosaurus, and others to be seen in the film.

OUI! OUI! Monopoly 80th Anniversary Sets In France To Have Real Money In Them

Monopoly 80th Anniversary  US Edition

Looks like some lucky folks in France who purchase a brand new Monopoly set might get a lot more than they bargained for. During celebrating of the legendary board game’s 80th anniversary this year, 80 sets that have been produced in France will have real Euro currency inside, according to The Washington Post. The cool total comes to 20,580 Euros, or about $23,000. Not bad for a $15 dollar investment (the general retail price of the game).

All throughout the year, there will be celebrations at hand for the real estate made easy game, which was originally released by Parker Brothers in 1935 and which quickly became a national phenomenon, and eventually, a global phenomenon, which it currently is. Through the decades since its introduction to the gaming market, there have been countless versions which span almost every language known to man, and also countless versions which have highlighted a particular product or brand, as in The Beatles, Spongebob, Family Guy, Star Wars, The Walking Dead and even focusing custom versions on a particular city like New York or Los Angeles. All told, the phenomenology of Monopoly continues to baffle pundits and delights audiences and new generations with each passing year.

Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset

As a child, I played with my share of Play-Doh, the wildly popular, colorful modeling clay used for both fun and education. As an adult, I’ve gifted a ton of the stuff to my hordes of godchildren, nieces, and nephews. These days, there’s all kinds of variations of the modeling compound with many accessories, playsets, and other tools to accompany it.

But, let’s talk about one of those tools – one that appeared to be more dildo than Play-Doh. Yes, that’s right, I said dildo, as an “extruder tool” that comes with the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset is, in fact, shaped like a penis. And when you squeeze the Play-Doh out of it to make the “icing,” well, you can imagine what that looks like, right?

Dungeons & Dragons Gets A New Logo (Gallery)

Dungeons and Dragons

As I mentioned last week, there’s a lot going on in the world of Dungeons & Dragons this summer. Not the least of which is their new logo! And though I only briefly mentioned it in my article, more information has been made available that you might find interesting.

The new logo is cool; I like the way each letter has a spike (or two) coming off of it. Makes it seem more diabolical, I suppose. But the big news rests on the little symbol between the words, the ampersand. It is this small piece of the logo that has the largest impact. Polarizing fans the world over, this logogram was designed by Glitschka Studios at the behest of Hasbro. But what they created was just the start; Hasbro altered the ampersand by giving it more depth through a more artistic rendering. The final addition is the change of coloration, turning a flat single colored item into a chromed multidimensional version.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hasbro toys banner

The great thing about a Hasbro/Marvel movie action figure line is that in addition to some great figures based on the heroes and villains in the film, there’ll also be a bunch of comics-based figures to boot. And this is the case with the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie line. Hasbro debuted their tie-ins for the upcoming film at last weekend’s Toy Fair in New York City, and we have a bunch of photos of the products here below.

Of course, as with any movie-based toy line, released in advance of the film, there’s also a slight risk of some spoilers, such as the Dead Gwen Stacy figure*, but alas, that’s the nature of the internet, and in most cases, these spoilers often serve to heighten anticipation in the coming flick.

So in addition to the various figures straight out of the movie, we’ll be treated to comic book versions of Beetle, Black Cat, Carnage, Superior Spider-Man, and the Ultimate Green Goblin.

Magic: The Gathering

Over twenty years after being introduced as the first Trading Card Game, Magic: The Gathering is being optioned for the silver screen. 20th Century Fox recently closed the deal that gives them access to the franchise for the purpose of creating a feature film, though it has been rumored they might seek to rival other huge fantasy movie franchises in the future.

At the helm is Simon Kinberg, a writer and producer who already works closely with Fox. Word has it that he’ll be working closely with Hasbro’s Daniel Persitz to bring this to fruition. Assisting him in this are Kira Goldberg and Ryan Jones who were directly involved in the acquisition of the rights to M:TG. There’s not a lot of details right now but we’ll be bringing you updates as we get them.

Titled My Little Pony: Friendship Is Rare, expectations are high for this one, as Geeks Of Doom has learned exclusively that the beloved Ponies and loveable Bears will be played by Fran Drescher, Gilbert Gottfried, Wanda Sykes, Rosie Perez, and Jack Black in LARPer costumes. Black will play what he says is his dream role as a minotaur in the film, while his musical outfit Tenacious D will provide the soundtrack, including their #1 hit “Friendship”.

Hasbro Says ‘Transformers 4’ Will Feature New Robots In An Effort To Boost Toy Sales

Untitled Transformers 4 Header

With every new sequel comes new characters, and when you have a multi-billion dollar franchise like Transformers, you will add as many characters as you can to boost toy sales. So it’s not surprising at all to hear that we will be seeing new characters introduced in the untitled Transformers 4 movie.

It’s been known that the core cast of the Transformers films won’t return to reprise their characters. As to whether or not the voice cast will return to voice their respective Autobot personas is unknown. But according to HASBRO CEO Brian Goldner, we will be seeing more Autobots recruited to fight the war against the Decepticons in the next film.
