The upcoming Fox CG movie Rio and the omnipresent iPhone game Angry Birds are a lot alike. They are both about birds. Some of the birds in Rio also appear to be angry. There’s no way these two properties could resist bird-sexing each other.

Above is a clip from 3D Rio, re-edited to contain the 2D birds that regularly give you new levels to distract you from your stupid job. The hammy, hyperactive acting of the bird villain Nigel makes me appreciate the unibrowed flatties. At least they don’t get all in your face about being pissed off birds – plus they’re good sports when you fling them across the room.

Rio flaps into theaters April 8th, but you can play the Angry Birds Rio game right now, until your thumbs bleed. (Trailer Addict)

First Two Minutes Of ‘Rio’ Makes Me Reconsider The Ethics Of Bird Hunting http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/first-two-minutes-of-rio-makes-me-reconsider-the-ethics-of-bird-hunting/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/first-two-minutes-of-rio-makes-me-reconsider-the-ethics-of-bird-hunting/#comments Sat, 29 Jan 2011 04:36:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=23340 Here's a preview of the animated movie 'Rio.' The upcoming 'Rio' version of Angry Birds for iPhone sounds more promising, because maybe I'll get to destroy these fowl pheasants.

Fox just released the first two minutes of their upcoming animated film Rio. The overly cheerful singing, the obnoxiously bright colors, the cute wittle baby bird who’s just wearning how to fwy… Now I wish I was a bird, so I’d have the claws to claw my god damn eyes out. If you’re really into The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland, and not in a let’s-get-high-and-laugh-at-how-retarded-this-is way, then this 3D movie is clearly for you.

Rio is directed by Carlos Saldanha, who did all the Ice Age movies and Robots. So after this clip, that’s really bad sign #2. However, a few promising elements are soaring above the mess of bird shit. The cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Neil Patrick Harris and Anne Hathaway. Also, the plot doesn’t sound too terrible:

“A nerdy macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro. He embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, learning to open himself up to all that life has to offer along the way.”

Actually, the coolest sounding news surrounding Rio is that Rovio is making a Rio-themed sequel to their Angry Birds iPhone game. I’m an Angry Birds addict, so the thought of using these cloying birds as living weapons to destroy pigs in towers has me excited. Sexually excited? Let’s not go there, but yes.

Wait, I just read a little further and apparently you use the original Angry Birds to rescue the characters from Rio. So… now I’m thinking it’s time to take my 28 gauge out of the tool shack, cause I’m declaring this bird season. (/Film and TheWrap)
