New trailer for The Angry Birds Movie smashes into theaters January 29

Incoming! A new, official trailer for The Angry Birds Movie, which opens in cinemas around the world in May, is now screening online and will be in movie theaters across the United States and Canada this weekend playing before Kung Fu Panda 3.

The new comedic trailer introduces us to Red, a bird with a temper problem, who must rally his fellow flightless birds to discover the true intentions of the pigs who have arrived on their island.

This latest release is hot on the heels of the initial teaser trailer unleashed last September and the Angry Birds Hatchlings holiday greeting released in December – which together have amassed more than 100 million views worldwide. The Hatchlings holiday video has the added distinction of being the best performing piece of Angry Birds content ever released on Facebook.

About The Angry Birds Movie

The Angry Birds Movie will be released in theaters by Columbia Pictures globally in May 2016.

In the 3D animated comedy, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This Is the End, Eastbound and Down) 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.

Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, this year's Ghostbusters), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (Broad City, Why? With Hannibal Buress), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black), Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis and produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder. The screenplay is by Jon Vitti, and the film is executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.
