Sony Pictures Releases First Official Trailer for 'The Angry Birds Movie'

Sony Pictures and Rovio today revealed the first full-length trailer for next summer's film adaptation of the popular iOS game Angry Birds (via Coming Soon). First announced back in 2012, the movie stars Jason Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Chuck, Danny McBride as Bomb, and Bill Hader as the villainous pig Leonard. According to the film's producer John Cohen, the movie aims to answer the question posed most to Rovio by the game's fans, "Why are these birds so angry?"


The movie is set to debut in theaters on July 1, 2016. When it opens, The Angry Birds Movie will premiere about seven years after the release of the original game. Earlier in the year, developer Rovio reported its first major profit decline since the debut of the first Angry Birds, and even began laying off employees last month.

I was really hoping to see Fassbender in the lead role.

Not coming out until next summer? That's about 3-4 years too late.

So when you go see the movie, do they stop the movie every 5 minutes and make you pay for more gems to continue watching?

:) :P

I thought the birds were angry because the pigs stole their eggs, as alluded to in the cut scenes from the original game.

Doesn't look anything like the real Angry Bird! Angry Bird would be rolling over in his grave! You at least have to cast an actor that looks like Angry Bird!
