The Angry Birds Movie 2 is Officially in Development The Angry Birds Movie didn’t exactly sound like a solid bet going into this summer. It was a cartoon based on a mobile phone video game – one which peaked in popularity a couple of years ago. Not to mention, the gameplay of the original game – birds slingshotting themselves into pigs, over and over again – didn’t exactly seem conducive to a feature film story. Then The Angry Birds Movie opened to a surprisingly decent response – though not an over-enthused one (read Screen Rant’s review for case in point).

Weekend Box Office Wrap-up: May 22, 2016 The feathered friends of Bird Island didn’t have much to be angry about this weekend at the box office, pulling off a surprise upset of Earth’s Mightiest. Coming in the #1 spot is The Angry Birds Movie (read our review), which brought in $39 million during its first three days. Even though the family demographic was well accounted for, this colorful animated picture was able to draw in a decent crowd. The most likely reason is probably the critical reactions, as most pundits said it was more entertaining and watchable than one would think a movie based on an app would be.

Weekend Box Office Report: 'The Angry Birds Movie' Catapults Into First Place Someone had to dethrone Captain America: Civil War from its spot at the top of the box office top 10, so why not The Angry Birds Movie?

‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ Rushes to $1.67 Million at Thursday Box Office “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” laughed its way to $1.67 million at the Thursday previews. Tracking for $36 million, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron and Dave Franco. The original grossed $2.56 million during Thursday previews in 2014, and then went on to earn $49 million its opening weekend. Its budget was $18 million — the sequel cost $35 million. However, “Neighbors 2” had a good start given that it’s tracking for significantly less than the first, is a sequel, and an R-rated comedy.

Film Review: THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE “Synopsis: Find out why the birds are so angry. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to three unlikely outcasts - Red, Chuck and Bomb - to figure out what the pigs are up to.” Credit should be given to Sony Pictures, Rovio Entertainment, and Jon Vitti (Writer) for taking a game about flinging birds across our phones and making something worthwhile.
