The Angry Birds Movie is getting a sequel to coincide with the game's 10-year anniversary.
Launching on 20th September, 2019, this sequel will be another joint collaboration between developer Rovio and Sony Pictures.
The film's existence shouldn't come as a surprise given that the first Angry Birds movie earned $350m worldwide since its launch last May.
The Angry Birds movie now has a debut trailer teasing its May 2016 release.
The Angry Birds movie has been cast and will star Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage.
The Angry Birds movie will be written by Jon Vetti, veteran scribe of several episodes of The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Da Ali G Show, Rovio has announced.
The long discussed Angry Birds movie has officially fallen into the hands of Sony Pictures Entertainment, where the game's developer Rovio announced it's set to come out 1st July 2016. That's a Friday, so clear your calenders now.
Angry Birds Trilogy has sold over one million units worldwide, publisher Ubisoft has announced.
Given the series' ridiculous popularity, that may not sound like a lot, but remember, this isn't the 69p Angry Birds that we all know and love, but rather the outlandishly priced £30 / $40 retail version on Xbox 360, PS3 and 3DS (note: the 3DS version is a little cheaper at £24 / $30).
To celebrate this landmark achievement and capitalise on the series' popularity, Ubisoft is bringing Housemarque's enhanced console version of the epic story of fowl versus pigs to Wii U and Wii later this year.
Angry Birds developer Rovio Entertainment has officially announced that it's making a feature film based on the popular mobile game.
Due in summer of 2016, the CG-animated movie is being produced by John Cohen, who recently produced Despicable Me. Former chairman of Marvel Studios and executive producer of Iron Man, David Maisel, will act as executive producer of the film.
Rovio will retain full creative control over the project by producing and financing the movie "outside the studio system," whatever that means.
"Better with Kinect". As a slogan, it's perfect. So pro-active! So on message! As an actual promise? Microsoft has yet to demonstrate how the addition of its hugely successful yet much maligned motion controller has improved any of the games that have incorporated it. Compatible with Kinect? Sure. Playable with Kinect? Sometimes. But better with Kinect? That's a really short list.
Despite wearing the purple stripe on the front cover, Angry Birds Trilogy won't be joining that list. It's considerably worse with Kinect, its use here apparently stemming from the common misconception that touch-screen controls and motion controls are the same thing. They're not, and Rovio's pocket-sized juggernaut offers ample proof.
Simply keeping your catapult steady is a hassle in itself; zooming in and out to view the whole screen is an infuriating chore; and the prospect of an accidental waggle launching your bird too early hangs like the sword of Damocles over every stage. Angry Birds Trilogy is emphatically not better with Kinect.
Annual football fiesta FIFA 13 has sold a million copies during its first week on sale in the UK.
It becomes the fourth game in history to do this, following Call of Duty titles Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2 and 3.
Video game sales jumped by 196 per cent in the past seven days. FIFA 13 accounted for 71 per cent of all games sold and 80 per cent of all revenue from game sales - both of these figures are higher than last year.
Angry Birds Trilogy will have an achievement that developer Rovio expects will take players 300 hours to complete.
We knew Angry Birds Trilogy would be a retail release with a steep price tag of $40 on Xbox 360 and PS3 and $30 on 3DS, but now Activision has revealed it plans to add DLC as well.
