Having only played the Rovio game on which The Angry Birds Movieis based a handful of times, I really didn’t know the back story of why the birds are actually angry. The movie makes it quite clear that the green pigs have plenty to do with it. I’m guessing that the whole thing of having wings but not being able to fly probably adds to the rage just a little.
I enjoyed The Angry Birds Movie more than I expected to. The cuteness of the birds, the comedy, the story and especially Chuck, the yellow bird voiced by Josh Gad. He stands out thanks to the funny dialogue and Gad’s comic timing and entertaining voice work.
During the movie, Idid get the urge to download the game and play, just so I could hurt those green piggies.
Watch to see precisely why the piggies deserve to be punished. There’s also the cuteness and well executed comic moments to enjoy and of course, that ending!
You’ve played the hit game created by mobile gaming application creator Rovio, you know the rage, now check out the movie trailer…
The Actors lending their voices to the characters include Josh Gad as Chuck, Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Danny McBride and Peter Dinklage.
I’ve only played the game once or twice, so perhaps serious fans have a different opinion. But this teaser trailer didn’t do a lot for me. Michael Jackson’s Bad also doesn’t quite feel like a good musical fit. The good news is, this is only the teaser so hope remains.
Currently though, The Secret Life Of Pets, another animatedmovie also out in summer 2016 is the one I want to see more.
I’m hoping that Kristen Stewart and Jessie Eisenberg’s new film, American Ultra ends up delivering all the thrills suggested in it’s fun looking mad and chaotic trailer.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X (2012), the film appears to be one of those stoner comedy / adventure movie types; kind of like one of my favourites, Pineapple Express (2008) – how great that would be.
I’m looking forward to seeing both Stewart and Eisenberg in different types of roles than I’m used to. However I might just be more excited about the characters played by John Leguizamo, Topher Grace and Connie Britton.
