The Angry Birds Movie to hit US cinemas on May 20th, 2016.
The main problem of making a movie about a fad is that by the time it hits the screen, the subject might not be as popular as it once was. Well the trailer for the Angry Birds Movie was released today. But the movie will be released next summer. The premiere dates are May 13th in the UK and May 20th in the US.
It seems so long ago that the game was so popular that it led to the opening of a theme park in China. The characters were seen everywhere. They were licensed for clothing, cereal, band-aids, lunch boxes and many other items. Rovio had even thought of becoming the new Disney.
But now the company is experiencing some big problems as the popularity fades away. The company had to cut 40 percent of its work force last month. In March 2015 the company also revealed that its profits had fallen by 73 percent in 2014.
Even the merchandising sales had dropped by 41 percent. Currently competitors such as Candy Crush Saga and King dominate the mobile gaming space.
In the Angry Birds Movie there are some big names. Josh Gad voices Chuck, Peter Dinklage plays the Mighty Eagle and Jason Sudeikis is Red. There is a possibility that the movie is successful. Even though many of the kids who played the Angry Birds back in 2011 are now teens.
