Angry Birds gameAfter selling almost seven million downloads and currently standing as the number one iPhone app game in over 60 countries, Angry Birds is set to get the respect it deserves and become a movie.

The game itself couldn't be simpler as players use a slingshot to help a flock of animated birds destroy a group of evil pigs who stole their eggs. To be honest, it sounds rubbish but anyone who has the game will admit to hours of their lives being wasted playing it.

Rovio, the Finnish creator of the hit iPhone and iPad game, have already been meeting with studios and talent agencies to turn their property into a big screen animated movie or TV show. Apparently, the goal is to create a look that resembles the claymation features for which Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animation have become known.

If you want a taste of what the film might be like, Rovio have already released an animated trailer that introduces the squawking characters (you can watch it below). As of today, that trailer has been viewed 5,704,794 times on YouTube.

And as for those of you outside of the Apple empire and wondering what on earth this story is about... be warned. Rovio are trying to launch the game on Google's Android software, as well as smart phones like the Blackberry and Palm, with plans to get it on to video game systems like Nintendo DS, Sony's PSP GO and consoles like PlayStation 3. Basically, in the very near future, everyone on the planet will be playing Angry Birds...
