The lights are on
Angry Birds? That's right. The iPhone and iPad smash hit may be coming to the silver screen. Rovio Mobile, the Finnish developer behind Angry Birds, says that it has had talks with Hollywood studios in regards to expanding its bird simulator beyond games. Rovio is banking on Angry Birds becoming an entertainment brand.
The game's cinematic trailer (see below) has been viewed on YouTube over five million times. I can't understand why. What attraction do people have to these characters? They remind me of Mad Balls...feathered Mad Balls. Maybe all five million of these people clicked the video in hopes of it being a walkthrough video that could help them solve a level they've been stuck on for hours. Or maybe people like feathered Mad Balls that don't talk, don't have legs or wings, and battle green pig heads.

...I was really hoping for like a Gears movie or Uncharted. Even a Ratchet & Clank...Looks like my dreams have to wait.
that suspense music sounded like it was from the pre-made garageband suspense music....
and the round black birds dont make that big of an explosion.....
why am i commenting on this.....
The bit on the end that was on the Iphone and the nokia phone looks a bit like crush the castle. Don't believe me? Here's the link: armorgames.com/.../crush-the-castle
i hope this is a joke.
At least they're not making a movie about Pee Monkey Toilet Trainer.
You guys are funny.
This can't possibly be good.
How can they possibly think of a plot that lasts over an hour in which none of the characters actually talk!?
Epic rage faces.
I've never played the game, but this doesn't sound like it could be good.
I didn't know anything about this game before seeing this post, but I must admit am I glad to have been educated *continues research on title*
As long as Uwe Boll is directing it, I'll be there on opening day.
You're joking... right?
this looks absolutely terrifying
are u bloody kidding me!
I just smoked and this is not funny...
Okay, so these are wingless, legless, nuclear, angry birds who are fighting green pig heads with legs who stole the birds's eggs.
this is a joke....right?.....RIGHT!!!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?
Who in the hell would make a movie based on this game? Looks like video games are going into the crappy animated movie world, anyway.
