midweek mouth off
With the mammoth critical and commercial success of The Lego Movie – hell, it’s Kervyn’s favourite film of 2014 to date – as well as recent (and upcoming) films inspired by the Transformers and GI Joe action figures, today we want to know what other toys you think would successfully make the leap to the big screen?

We’ve had movies based on theme park rides. We’ve had movies based on board games. Now we want to know what toys could actually form the basis of a highly entertaining high concept film franchise? Let your imagination run wild – and then present us with your pitch. Personally, my money’s on Hot Wheels, with its combination of crazy, colourful vehicles and crazier stunt work.
