Back in September we saw a teaser trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, a 3D animated feature from Sony Pictures Entertainment based on the hit mobile game series Angry Birds.
Now the official theatrical trailer for the movie—which is set on an island paradise inhabited by the birds when some mysterious green pigs show up—has been released. You can read a can watch the new trailer below.
This week, we’re joined by Greg Davies, host of Blendover and Heavy Metal Historian podcasts (and of course the TARDISBlend podcast hosted here at Geeks of Doom) as we discuss a victory for fair use, are cars next for Apple?; Volkswagen‘s shady emissions code, the future of science in the classroom, 4Chan changes hands, and when is tinkering a crime? All this and much, much more!
Remember Angry Birds? Me neither! But while the game isn’t talked about as much as it used to be, the animated movie we first heard about back in December of 2012 is still on the way whether you’re ready for it or not.
Officially titled The Angry Birds Movie, it features quite the cast including Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, and others. As an added bonus, the movie doesn’t look as awful as you may have imagined it was going to look. Whether the final product ends up ultimately being a pleasant surprise, however, is a question to be answered on another day.
You can read a synopsis and check out the first trailer for The Angry Birds Movie below.
The full voice cast for Angry Birds, the movie adaptation of the hit mobile game from Rovio, has been announced, and it’s an impressive lineup. The first image of the animated movie has also been released online.
The cast includes Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Keegan-Michael Key, Cristela Alonzo, Jillian Bell, and Danielle Brooks, and the movie will land in theaters on July 1, 2016.

Angry Birds #1 is 100% less frustrating than the game is. BUT is it as much fun? Let’s find out…
Writer Jeff Parker is the PERFECT fit for this comic! He gives us three shorter stories in the issue that remind me a lot of some old Looney Tunes or Tom & Jerry cartoons. He gives each and every bird a unique and different personality, and every single one of them is pretty funny. The pigs, obviously, play the villains of each story. The best part about the book is that it’s FUNNY. I’m not sure that I’d want to read a serious, superhero-like Angry Birds comic — in fact, I know I wouldn’t. This comic keeps the tone of the game, which is light-hearted, joke filled, and FUN!!
