This week sees the entrance into our collective consciousness of the Angry Birds movie. It’s the latest attempt to mould a cinematic treat out of an outrageously popular, if narratively limited, game.

All this week we’ll be running interviews with the cast of Angry Birds the Movie, with Josh Gad and Maya Rudolph coming up. Today it’s the turn of Jason Sudeikis, who lends his voice to lead bird in the Angry bunch – Red.

Synopsis hit? Game on!

In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, 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 rolesince 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.
