The First Angry Birds Trailer Drops…And Lays An Egg

It’s been a few years since I deleted Angry Birds off of my mobile device as one of the 12 Steps in Angry Birds Anonymous.  Now, as the world has mostly stopped with the Angry Birds craze, much like the Godfather, Hollywood is pulling us back in.

The Angry Birds movie includes Josh Gad, Danny McBride, and SNL alum Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph.  The movie seemingly follows the life of Red, a bird who’s just trying to find happiness but instead just continuously finds anger.  When the Pigs arrive, we can assume that all Hell will break loose.

I know it’s just an initial trailer but this movie looks unnecessary and bad.  I’m sure we’ll get more context soon but it just doesn’t look original.  Sure, you can argue that the originality comes from it being Angry Birds. However, haven’t we seen this movie before?  Outcasts trying to navigate their way to happiness ultimately become the unlikeliest of heroes and get the girls at the end.  I’ll need to see more of this movie before I really give it a chance but until then it looks quite fowl.
