Stretch gets release

6 years agoby:

Stretch Hulk Earlier this year, we told you about Universal optioning the rights to Hasbro's Stretch Armstrong toy line in order to make a big budget live action feature. If you thought perhaps this particularly insane move was a mere ploy to snatch up the rights before anyone else did and somehow started profiting from a feature adaptation, sorry to say, that's not the case. They seem pretty serious about bringing ole Stretch to the big screen as they've given the feature an April 15th, 2011 release date. This, of course, means that this thing is actually happening. In just about a year and a half, there'll be a live action STRETCH ARMSTRONG hitting theaters. There'll be clips, trailers, posters, (God forbid), virals and an entire new line of Stretch toys. And what if it's a hit? There'll be sequels! Oy vey!

Extra Tidbit: Stretch Hulk might not be too far off.

I used to have one of those Stretch Armstrongs: the damn thing dried up, cracked and leaked syrupy innards all over the place. Made a hellacious mess.

The Incredibles already did this, and did it well. I want an Incredibles sequel. Dammit.

All this will be is a superhero movie. It will be the Fantastic Four with just Mr. Fantastic. Think about that and how bad that will be.

Okay, a Stretch Armstrong movie is completely unnecessary, we all know that. But honestly, I think it makes a lot more sense then some of the other properties they have optioned (i.e. Monopoly, Battleship). I mean with the success of superhero films, they can easily make him a kid-friendly version of Mr. Fantastic or Plastic Man, and then voila, they've got their very own sueprhero that they can use to star in video games, comic books, etc. and rake in mountains of cash. Heck, I'm pretty sure

Heck, I'm pretty sure they're going to (try to) do exactly that. Again, it's unneccessary, but I at least understand the stuido's thinking on this one.

This is really a bizarre idea-we had a stretch Monster back in the late 70's when it was 1st released-very neat character toy like Stretch Armstrong was-but a movie???
