Battleship & 7 Other Board Game Movies (PHOTOS)

When we heard that "Battleship" was being made into a movie, we immediately had two questions: 1) "Why?" and 2) "Will there be pegs?"

The answer to the first question was, "Shut up," and the answer to the second was, "You bet your sweet ass there will be pegs."

Of course, when pondering the film, which features the unlikely combination of Liam Neeson and Rihanna, one inevitably comes to a third, more important query: "What's next?"

After all, if "Battleship" can be made into a movie (Will Liam Neeson say, "You sunk my battleship!" to an alien... NO, stop, don't tell us!), who is to say you can't make a Hollywood blockbuster out of Trivial Pursuit or Sorry?

With that in mind, here are our fantasies suggestions for more Hasbro-based cinema classics.

  • Jenga, The Movie

    How would Nicolas Cage NOT be in that movie?

  • The Game Of Life, The Movie

    She's the pink peg, he's the blue one... will they work it out?

  • Scrabble, The Movie

    After all, Hollywood scripts are made up of words and letters anyway, so this is a natural fit.

  • Simon, The Movie

    This is one of those multi-genre movies: there's action, romance, drama, and even some light-hearted comedy. You might say it has all the colors represented.

  • Connect Four, The Movie

    Can these sisters get together? Let's hope so.

  • Operation, The Movie

    Even Hasbro has its dark side.

  • Twister, The Movie

    This one has already been made, but most people forget that it was based on the popular party game.
