Angry Birds is the most popular game on the planet right now and I have no freakin’ clue why. Yes, it’s simple, addicting, incredibly accessible but don’t you eventually tire of launching birds at pigs? I must be in the minority ’cause someone thought the premise of Angry Birds (remember, shoot birds at pigs) would be fantastic for a movie. I can only imagine what a giant pile of stinky bird shit that flick will be.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone took the concept of Angry Birds, flushed out a story, developed characters and really tried to adapt what people love about the game (Which is what, again?) into a smart, funny, entertaining film? Of course it would, and leave it to the interwebz to deliver. Below is a trailer for an Angry Birds movie as seen through the eyes of Guy Ritchie. Sure, it blatantly steals the director’s style but a snazzy heist flick with sexy ladies as the Birds squaring off against a gang of Pigs sounds awesome.
Jason and Tommy are tasked with delivering the Queen Mum’s famed Fabergé egg collection to a museum in Philadelphia. Only when they get to America, they find the eggs are gone. A team of highly-trained femme fatale art thieves have stolen the case the eggs were transported in, only to discover another team of swine-masked bandits has made off with the actual prize.
These so-called “American birds” aren’t just going to sit back, and let someone else get all the glory and gold. They’re smart. They’re sexy. And now, these birds are angry.
From the creators of God of War (Indie Movie), The Legend of Zelda (1987), and Inglourious Plummers comes the next epic of blockbuster proportions: Angry Birds.

Try and tell me you wouldn’t shell out some dough to see this movie. Just try.
