Associated Press- According to the associated press, HASBRO's profits have fallen 47% in the first quarter of the year. In comparison, the nation's #1 toy retailer, Mattel only reported a 15% loss.

"We expected revenues to decline in the first quarter due to economic challenges, the impact of foreign exchange and retailers reducing inventory levels," said Chief Executive Brian Goldner in a statement.
In the U.S., Star Wars, Playskool, Nerf and board game sales were strong, but sales of Littlest Pet Shop, Transformers and Marvel brands declined. Internationally, Star Wars and Nerf sales were strong while Transformers and My Little Pony sales fell."


"Hasbro of Pawtucket, R.I., expects results to improve as the year goes on, since they have products tied to several movies this year, including "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" and "X-men Origins: Wolverine."
"Based on the strength of our product line, we believe the two most recent quarters will prove to have been the most challenging for Hasbro in this economic cycle," CFO David Hargreaves said in a statement."

Michael Bay has posted on his forums that the new "Revenge of the Fallen" trailer will be released with X-men Origins: Wolverine. Michael & Steven Spielberg sat down for a screening of a rough cut of the new Transformer movie and Spielberg said, "It's Awesome" and felt it was better than the 1st movie. The new Wolverine movie is scheduled to hit theaters May 1st. Check out what Michael had to say below or click the link to see his original post at MichaelBay.com

http://www.shootfortheedit.com/forum/sh ... #post75561

Steven Spielberg sat next to me in a big 100 person theater at Sony today. There were 98 empty seats. The lights came up after we just watched my cut of Revenge of the Fallen. He turned to me and said
"It's awesome". He felt this movie was better then the first - and probably my best, who knows - at this point in a movie you start to lose your objectivity. I just hope the fans like it. I'm going to start putting it in front of audiences in a few weeks - no you are not invited, yet.

We have 60 days left. Let me tell you it will be a race to finish. It's 12 at night and we are still working here in the edit room. Everyone at ILM and DD are killing themselves right now, they are doing a stellar job on the effects. We also just finished our trailer which is coming out with Wolverine. Talk to you soon.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IDW Named Third-Largest Publisher

10-year-old publishing company reaches #3 in March based on Diamond sales figures


San Diego, CA (April 13, 2009) – Good things come in threes at IDW! Capping off a week of milestones, IDW is proud to enter the ranks of Diamond’s top three publishers for the first time in March. In addition to reaching third, IDW is also celebrating its tenth anniversary, and boasts five Eisner nominations, another new company record.

“This is a huge milestone for us, and the culmination of a decade of hard work by the many different people to have contributed to IDW over the years,” said Ted Adams, CEO of IDW. “We have a lot to be proud of as a company, and this is clearly a great beginning to our second decade.”

Throughout its history, IDW has strived to offer a wide array of comic books, graphic novels and classic books in every major entertainment genre. This broad appeal paid off in March, as several diverse titles helped IDW achieve huge unit sales.

Star Trek: Countdown, the official prequel to the much-anticipated motion picture, has consistently sold very well. As the movie release approaches, the Star Trek: Countdown trade paperback will be a much-read for Star Trek fans who want to fully understand the film. All four issues of Star Trek: Countdown are also available for download from iTunes.

IDW’s G.I. JOE books were also major sellers in March, with several different series bringing fans on new missions with their favorite JOEs. The continuing adventures of Joss Whedon’s fan-favorite vampire, Angel, was another lead seller for IDW in March, with multiple Angel storylines expanding on the universe left behind by the television show.

March was a great month of IDW’s many independent books, including the Eisner-nominated Locke & Key, The New York Times Best Selling Wormwood, and Groom Lake, a four-part tale of alien abductions and probings, conspiracies and secrets.

“IDW has always focused on producing quality comics and books, and it’s gratifying to see fans enjoying our books so much,” said IDW Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Chris Ryall. “There is definitely a lot more great things to come for the company and our readers.”
