Hollywood has literally NOTHING left to offer audiences. It started with the remakes, then comic adaptations began to oversaturate the market, then 3D took over, followed by several ridiculous board game movies, and now…now they’re tackling game applications — iPhone game applications. According to Variety, a big screen version of Angry Birds is headed our way.
The Angry Birds game features a player using a slingshot to hit different types of pigs (the bad guys) by hurling birds at them. Sounds interesting enough, right (rolls eyes). The only good news to come out of this is that the adaptation may play as a series of shorts as opposed to a feature length film.
The application was created by Finnish company Rovio, and made specifically for iPhone and iPad devices. It’s sold more than 6.5 million downloads and has quickly become a major best seller for the company. The game debuted last December and immediately became a hit in its small Finnish market, and soon expanded to the U.S. and the U.K.
In case you have no idea what Angry Birds is, here’s a trailer for it:
At this point, we have nothing to say. NOTHING.
Do you think Angry Birds is suitable material for a feature film? Do you think Hollywood has lost it?
