'Angry Birds' movie to be released in theaters in 2016

UPI News Service, 05/15/2013 

Hollywood's Sony Pictures Entertainment says it will distribute worldwide a 3-D animated movie based on the popular "Angry Birds" video game.

The film is being developed, produced and financed by Rovio Entertainment and will be released worldwide by Sony Pictures July 1, 2016.

"Sony impressed us with their great attitude, determination and professionalism. They convinced us that we have found the right partners and team to help us market and distribute our first motion picture," Mikael Hed, chief executive officer of Rovio Entertainment, said in a statement Wednesday.

Michael Lynton, chairman and chief executive officer of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, said: "Every studio in town would love to add 'Angry Birds' to their slate. There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table. We're thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together."
