If you are one of the tens of millions of fans of The Angry Birds video game series, I bet I know what you are doing this weekend. Heading to your local theater to see the first ever film from the popular franchise — The Angry Birds Movie. A film that is likely to be a huge hit in the US for Sony Pictures Imageworks.
Why? Because The Angry Birds Movie has grossed $43 million in the last week in Europe, the Middle East and other territories it has just released in.
The Angry Birds Movie stars Jason Sudeikis, Peter Dinnklage, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader and Sean Penn.
It is expected to gross at least $40 million in the United States alone when it releases on Friday May 20, 2016. Not surprised really as, from the trailer alone, it does look hilarious.
