Jason Sudeikis shows his temper in the trailer for The Angry Birds Movie

Last Updated on August 2, 2021


If you're ready for the Angry Birds to take flight in cinemas, that's exactly what's going to happen next summer! The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) 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. Check out the first trailer below!

I can't claim to see a lot of the "family entertainment" out there of the animated variety, but this doesn't really look much different than any other kids' animated flick to me. On the bright side, I'd say the cast was a pretty inspired choice. It's just too bad they don't sound inspired in this trailer. Still, with the flick hitting in 9 months from now, perhaps there's a lot better material left to animate. At least, I hope for parents' sake there is.

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE will hit theaters on July 1, 2016.
