As a result, POOF, "The Thing," their big April pre-summer release, is gone from the schedule.

We bow to anyone who can come up with a worse idea for a Hollywood tentpole blockbuster like "Ouija Board: The Movie." Hasbro must be looking for an excuse to get us to kiss their Converse, however, as they are prepared to throw Yankees money at adapting the game into a full length feature, with $80-100 million being the magic number to get this thing on movie screens nationwide.
