Angry Birds has been made into a spoof movie trailer by Rooster Teeth, directed by Michael Bay of Transformers fame, which sees the birds catapulted by action heroes in their first ever real-life role.
Anyone with a penchant for killing time on their phone is probably addicted to Angry Birds; arguably the most cult video game since Pac-man.
The premise of Angry Birds is simple – players fire multi-coloured birds to topple structures or hit green pigs. It’s strangely compelling and has gone on to become a cult hit with new content added regularly.
This bird is angry. Just look at his eyebrows.
Now Angry Birds has been turned into a movie trailer directed by Michael Bay, known for high-budget action films including The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and the Bad Boys and Transformers series.
In the trailer the hero is introduced to the angry birds – the army’s ultimate weapon. Using a slingshot and the angry birds he battles the evil pigs.
Don’t mess with this angry bird.
There are no serious moves to make Angry Birds into a film, but it is being turned into TV series and a board game is in the works.
On top of that, £26 million was recently invested in the game, so don’t expect to see the back of Angry Birds just yet…
