Angry Birds to conquer Silver Screen in 2016

Angry Birds is getting a movie adaption. Not really surprising that. What is surprising, is that it may actually be a quality film, thanks to the top class producers attached. What do you think? Milking the franchise or not? (Casual games, Culture, Industry)

I can't stand the games or the merchandise. Now we're getting a film??

I don't dislike the games or the merchandise. The game is somewhat entertaining and I think the T-shirts and the plush toys look quite cool. The thing that about the franchise that bothers me is I don't understand why it is so huge!

It has a marketable image for sure, but the game isn't that good even for a mindless 5 minute session on the bus etc. I really fail to understand its polularity. I don't know how the series has made it this far, but hats off to whoever made it happen. They are clearly much smarter than me lol

at first i thought this was a real stretch, but with a pedigree like Captain America, The First Avenger, Thor, The Incredible Hulk and the Iron Man films.... colour me intrigued

Yes, I know...When will the madness stop and HOW CAN THEY POSSIBLY MAKE A MOVIE OF THIS?
Maybe:
Angry Birds 1: New Hope for the Eggs
Angry Birds 2: The Birds Strike Back
Angry Birds 3: Return of the Piggies

if its based on the Star Wars variant)

I'm always excited to see if there is such a thing as a quality film based on a game. Count me in :D

Yup, there have been some epic fails at this. This might be "The One"

I know the Angry Birds have been popular for a while, but 2016? 3 years from now? What if Angry Birds dies out by then? Unless they keep getting cool franchise crossovers, I'm not sure how much longer that ship can stay afloat.

Kudos if it does, but we're talking three years from now the game still being insanely popular. How much innovation can Angry Birds use to keep fresh?

Tbh, the angry birds star wars trailer http://www.youtube.com/watc... is really funny. I would rather watch a full film of this rather than episode 1,2,3 again...

in 2016 something else will be hot......not Angry birds.

I mean it will still be around, but it's 15 minutes of fame will be up/ over by then and most will have moved onto something else.

I never bought into it because of all the similar games I had played for free prior to them stealing this idea for a game.
