    I'm sure a big chunk of it goes to Paramount/Dreamworks, but does anyone know where it breaks down percentage wise?

    Not enough goes to me. ie, nada.
    I imagine Hasbro get a shiny penny. At a guess somewhere between 15-20%

    Actually, contrary to popular belief, Hasbro doesnt get so much as a dime, just great advertisement to sell more toys. First, they certainly will pay taxes and other costs of business. The Board of Directors will choose what to do with it after that, they can pay down debt, pay dividends, buy back stocks, invest it in other projects or TF2 or low risk investments.

    I'm sure Hasbro got something, probably upfront, for the movie rights. As for the profits, that I doubt they got much if anything from.

    Mostly studio and director/producers/writers I think, unless any of the actors have a percentage of box office in their contracts but we'd never find out about that.
