New Angry Birds Movie TV Trailer Trades Pee Jokes for Poop Jokes

Sony's Angry Birds movie opens in May.


A new TV spot for Sony's upcoming Angry Birds movie will air tonight during the Grammys. You don't have to wait to watch it, however, as Sony has released the video ahead of time. Last month's trailer had a few pee jokes, but this one starts off with a poop joke. Check it out below.

"You've spent countless hours playing the game, but if you think you know the angry birds, you don't know [cue bird poop]," the narrator says at the start of the 30-second spot.

The trailer then proceeds to set up the story (the pigs stole the birds' eggs and they need to get them back), going on to call the battle between birds and pigs the "greatest rivalry of all time."

The 58th Grammy Awards air on CBS tonight at 8 PM EST.

Angry Birds follows a bird named Red (voiced by SNL vetern Jason Sudeikis), who has a temper problem. Along with other birds Chuck (Frozen's Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride from East Bound and Down), the three have been considered outsiders for their entire lives. But one day, their island paradise is invaded by green pigs, and of course, it's up to the three of them to save the world.

The Angry Birds movie is being written by veteran scribe Jon Vitti, who is perhaps best known for his work on The Simpsons. He wrote the famous "Mr. Plow" episode, among others.

The film is produced by visual effects and animation studio Sony Pictures Imageworks, and will be distributed around the world by Sony Pictures. Animated movie veterans Fergal Reilly (Spider-Man 2, The Iron Giant) and Clay Kaytis (Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled) are directing the film, which is due out May 2016.

Disclosure: GameSpot and CBS are both owned by CBS Corp.
