TRAILER: Rovio's "The Angry Birds Movie"

Here it is, out first look at The Angry Birds Movie, opening May 2016 via Sony/Columbia Pictures. Directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly, it stars Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon with Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage and Keegan-Michael Key. 

The movie takes place on an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
