Rovio Unleashes New ‘Angry Birds Movie’ Trailer

CG-animated comedy directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis is due in theaters on May 20, 2016.

Rovio Entertainment has unveiled a brand-new trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, that movie based on the addicting mobile video game franchise that has been taking over the minds of adults and kids alike since 2009.

In the 3D animated comedy, due in theaters on May 20, 2016, audiences will finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes Angry Birds fans 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.

The new trailer doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot, but we do get to see one anger-inducing incident after another backed by pop hits by Michael Jackson and The Carpenters:

Featuring an all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, next year's Ghostbusters), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (Broad City, Why? With Hannibal Buress), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black), Latin recording artist Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.
