Angry Birds was incredibly hot, like, three years ago. T-shirts, toys and probably too many games... you couldn’t escape the upset avians of publisher Rovio’s hit series. And now that the public obsession has cooled to lukewarm, we get our first look at the Angry Birds movie.
The deal to make a movie out of Rovio’s now-faded Angry Birds franchise was struck three years ago. That’s probably why they were able to line superstar talent like Jason Sudekis, Josh Gad, Maya Rudolph and others. The trailer makes it seem like the movie’s going to try and make real characters out the birds who just been a set of abilities. Angry Birds’ glory days are behind us but the movie might be a surprise. Who knows?
