'The Angry Birds Movie' takes flight

Your rating: None Average: 2.4 (5 votes)

The trailers for anthropomorphic animated movies are coming thick and fast. Here is the teaser trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, due out (unless the date is changed) May 20, 2016. The concept is by Finnish video game company Rovio Entertainment, of course, but the CGI movie is by Sony Pictures Imageworks’ new animation studio in Vancouver (where Sony Pictures Animation moved it from Hollywood for British Columbia’s tax breaks). It’s what Sony Imageworks will be working on now that Hotel Transylvania 2 is finished.

The feature is directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly, from a screenplay by Jon Vitti. Voices include Jason Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Chuck, Maya Rudolph as Matilda, Danny McBride as Bomb and Peter Dinklage as Mighty Eagle, with Bill Hader as Leonard, a Minion Pig.

Oh yeah!!!!!! I'm so hyped for this! And the designs are great! The wings, and how they're almost like paws, are just genius. X3

Seriously, are you trolling us?

Your rating: None

I'm not trolling, I'm a very real furry with a very real opinion on movies. And the cut and paste plot of Zootopia worries me, the fact it's a bland red fox worries me, and the gazelle named Gazelle worries me. At least Angry Birds has some uniqueness too it. Am I coming across as a troll or as someone with a different opinion?

My friend told me my comment looked sarcastic, which it wasn't so I apologize.
I just...don't see anything new coming from Zootopia at all. Sorry.

You know what, I had a disappointing, and I'm pissed off at the world; you were the first (mostly) consequence free can to kick, so I'm just being snotty.

I should be apologizing. Sorry about that.

Your rating: None

I'm sorry I came across that way to you. I didn't mean to, and as consequence free as I came across, I don't want any trouble. I like this site. ^^

I hate these stupid teasers. They look cool but there's no sense of plot or how the movie will actually work. The part of the movie that is actually important is the part that is left out. It's like advertising a new phone by spending all the time talking about how long the charging cable is.

There's two kinds of people in this world, my friend; those that complain that trailers give too much away about the plot, and those that complain that trailers don't give enough plot.

Your rating: None

Way back when (around the 1950s), movies would have one trailer, and that was it. Today a movie from a major studio has at least three trailers. They give away increasing amounts of the plot. "The Good Dinosaur" is a fine example; it wasn't until the third trailer that it was revealed that the dinosaurs will talk, and that the main dinosaur is a juvenile rather than an adult. Trailers used to feature excerpts from the movie; today they may be mini-stories that aren't in the movie at all, such as Pixar's first trailers for "The Incredibles" and "Monsters University".

Come to think of it, is that the difference between a teaser trailer and a regular trailer? A teaser contains only scenes that won't appear in the movie?

Sometimes. Other times, a teaser does show scenes from the film and is just very vague with what is happening.

Your rating: None

It takes a lot to make a good movie, especially one adapted from a video game, which tend to be disappointing affairs.

That said, the trailer looks visually impressive and well animated, and I think we can see some interesting character interactions.

In before the Flappy Bird's movie!

Ebert and Roper says: "It took all my perseverance to overcome the simplistic yet unwieldy plot."

Well, actually, that's a lot of perseverance for two dead guys.
