The Angry Birds Movie characters appear in a new AMC Theaters spot
As of today, we’re exactly four months away from Rovio and Sony Pictures‘ The Angry Birds Movie. To help get people excited to check out the new movie on the big screen, the Angry Birds themselves today appear in an AMC Theatres spot that highlights the importance of seeing movies on the big screen. Check it out in the player below!
In the movie, the main trio of Angry Birds will be led by Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We’re the Millers) as Red, a bird with a temper, with Josh Gad (Frozen) as the speedy Chuck, and Danny McBride (This is the End, “Eastbound & Down”) voicing the volatile Bomb.
Supporting them are Bill Hader (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) as a pig, Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) as Matilda, and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) as the Mighty Eagle. Also lending their voices to the video game adaptation are Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”), Kate McKinnon (“SNL”), Tony Hale (“Arrested Development”), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (“Broad City”), Cristela Alonzo (“Cristela”), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (“Orange is the New Black”), singer Romeo Santos and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla).
“The question Rovio gets more than anything is ‘Why are these birds so angry?’” producer John Cohen (Despicable Me) said previously. “This is the origin story for how that conflict came to exist between birds and little green piggies.”
In its various formats, the “Angry Birds” game has been downloaded over two billion times as of this year, with an animated series “Angry Birds Toons” that has collectively tallied three-billion views on numerous platforms. Written by “The Simpsons” alum Jon Vitti and directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, The Angry Birds Movie is set to debut in the US on May 20, 2016.
