Mobile Game Adaptation

Sony Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for its mobile game adaptation, The Angry Birds Movie, starring the voices of Jason Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Yellow, and Danny McBride as Black, along with Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, and Bill Hader as villainous pig.

Directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly, this CG-animated adventure slingshots into theaters May 20, 2016. Watch the first look at The Angry Birds Movie, which opens in 3D on May 20, 2016.

“We’re going to be working on managing our anger through movement!” Looks promising. A fun kids movie with enough “mature humor” that adults would enjoy.

The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis – We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride – This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
