Movie trailers: “The Angry Birds Movie”

Videogame adaptations aren’t new, and they’re usually not that true to the original. But Clay Kaytis’ and Fergal Reilly’s The Angry Birds Movie might just work.

There have been some questionable movies in the past which mostly dispensed with the source material and became franchises of their own, like the Resident Evil series, or which were too faithful, like Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, although the latter one doesn’t really count, because it was a fan-made mini series turned into IMHO a rather boring 2 1/2 hours full-length feature.

However, it’s weird that more fun-oriented franchises haven’t really found their place in cinema, which I really don’t get. Wreck-It Ralph was the closest in animated movies which was suitable for all audiences. Thankfully, The Angry Birds Movie looks as if it has the right ingredients to be fun for everyone who likes their animated movies light on story and characters, but strong on the one-liners and awkward situations.

What’s especially great about this is that one finally gets the background story of why the rather happy and careless birds get so angry with the pigs, and with a character like Red who can’t seem to find peace in the beautiful island society, this will appeal to an older audience as well. With 3D thrown in, fun pop-outs are guaranteed.

The movie will be released by Sony Pictures Animation in May 2016.
