Angry Birds

It was a tough year for Rovio, the gaming company known for creating the smash-hit Angry Birds (and not much else). 

The Finnish company cut nearly 300 jobs in August  and reported that its operating profit fell 73% last year  because of a drop off in its licensing business, which includes Angry Birds-themed toys and apparel.

But that brand might be about to get another big boost, thanks to a new Angry Birds movie, set to hit theaters in May 2016. The trailer, which boasts a star-studded cast including Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage, and Danny McBride, just came out today.  

Finally, we will apparently learn what made the birds so angry in the first place.
