During the Hasbro Q1 Earnings Call, some small details came out about upcoming releases. Our good buddy NIBMRatchet from sister site TFW2005.com shared those details with us.
The Boys category will benefit from the launch of four major motion pictures in the coming months to global audiences. In partnership with Universal, BATTLESHIP is off to a great early start. The film recently launched in more than 50 international territories and while we are still awaiting final numbers, we are very pleased that in just 12 days, the film has grossed more than $100M in international box office revenue.
MARVEL has two tremendous films this year – THE AVENGERS, from Marvel, opens May 4, and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN from Marvel and Sony, opens July 3. Both brands are being supported with television animation and we have strong lines for both properties.
Finally, in partnership with Paramount, we are excited for the return of G.I. JOE to the big screen in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, coming to theatres on June 29th.
