10 Toy-Based Movies Ideas

The soon-to-be-in-theaters movie Battleship proves that no idea is too dumb for Hollywood to make a blockbuster out of it. Could other toy-based movies be far behind? How about a film based on Connect Four?
Milton Bradley's abstract strategy game transforms into an apocalyptic race against time in this sci-fi blockbuster, starring Ryan Gosling and Rihanna as technocratic dictators (and ex-lovers) locked in a perpetual war of mutually assured destruction and reconstruction on the planet Ouroboros. After erecting, then annihilating, exquisite tech-noir skyscrapers and impossibly high vertical farms using strategically placed death discs, it is left to a brilliant but raunchy elderly mathematician (Betty White) to unite the ex-lovers with a perfect-play strategy inspired by James D. Allen and Victor Allis, who solved the game on Earth in the late '80s. Catchphrases from the game's TV commercial -- "Here, diagonally" and "Pretty sneaky, sis" -- are incorporated into the film's final moments, when the formerly self-centered Gosling asks the formerly obstinate Rihanna how she would like to be kissed.
