The Next Video Game Movie Is...

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.
