Angry Birds – The Movie

You know you’ve played it on the iPhone – it’s addicting – even I, who don’t play too many games, have found myself submerged in a trance hurling Angry Birds through the sky. Well now there is talk of taking the hit game to the cinematic screen.

Angry Birds - The Movie 1

A report in Variety quotes the game’s makers, a Finnish company called Rovio, as saying they’ve been in discussions with Hollywood execs about creating a film around the game.

The game, which has been downloaded some 6.5 million times, features a cadre of colorful birds, flinging themselves into battle against a group of fat green pigs. In an effort to fuel the fire of speculation, Rovio has put together a few internet short films, the one below has seen more than 5 million views.

Angry Birds is the hot thing now, but will it still be relevant when/if a movie comes out? That is the question that Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio answered during an Variety interview with, “…The challenge is to make sure the brand is relevant when the movie comes out…”

If you want the game – head over to the Apple App Store and download the 99 cent game here. For you iPad owners, check out the $4.99 Angry Birds HD version here.
