Well’p.  Who hasn’t played Angry Birds?  So it figures that somebody’d get an idea to make a movie out of the game.  Hey, it worked so well for Super Mario Brothers, Street Fighter and Alone in the Dark.  At least this time the film will be animated, and it’s got the whole “geared to kids but adults will dig the double entendres too” thing going on.  Synopsis?

In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry.

The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely.  In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) 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 trailer and see if you’d line up to catch the full film.  Gotta admit the voice actors here are top-notch.  Fingers crossed this won’t bomb like, well, Bomb.

Angry Birds piledrives into theaters May 20th, 2016.
