WARNER BROS. CONSUMER PRODUCTS TAPS PRESSMAN TOY TO INTRODUCE BOARD GAMES INSPIRED BY GREEN LANTERN MOVIE FOR SUMMER 2011

Available at Mass and Specialty Retailers Nationwide in May 2011

BURBANK, Calif., February 11, 2011 – Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, announced today a deal with Pressman Toy Corporation to develop games based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming 2011 film “Green Lantern.” The movie will make its theatrical debut on June 17, 2011. Pressman Toy’s games based on the movie will be available at mass and specialty retailers nationwide in May 2011.

“‘Green Lantern’ is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2011 and Pressman Toy is the perfect partner to develop games worthy of this fantastic property,” said Karen McTier, executive vice president, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Fans of the film and of all DC Super Heroes will be thrilled by the array of offerings provided as a result of this collaboration.”

“The members of the intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps, have served as super heroes for generations of children,” said Jim Pressman, president of Pressman Toy Corporation. “When we learned Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment would be bringing these action heroes to life on the big screen for the first time, we knew we wanted to join forces with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to make games that would continue the adventure at home.”

The “Green Lantern” film stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role as the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps. Each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers, but when a new enemy threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate, and the fate of Earth, lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan. The film also stars Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins, Temuera Morrison, Jay O. Sanders, Taika Waititi and Jon Tenney.
