The update, whatever comes after "Jungle Escape," will unlock some sweet new features including "marmoset mauling action" and it'll have many "juicy secrets" to discover. The update is being released a little later than expected, much to the chagrin of gamers who have been chomping at the bit and complaining about it's slipped release date. But they can rejoice that it will be followed by three more chapters of the Angry Birds Rio game to be released on or about July, October, and November of 2011.

As you know, one of the biggest updates to Angry Birds basically just dropped upon the earth like one of those fat versions of the original hero.

If you're a fan of the hysterically funny Red vs. Blue, and you can't get enough of playing Angry Birds (isn't it the law now?), you're gonna love this trailer for Angry Birds ... The Movie. Okay, before you get too excited, the trailer is a fake. But it's a pretty good one. It's a parody of the action genre. But to be honest, it's pretty well conceived and the production values give it heft.
The story follows a covert operative who is charged with infiltrating the Pigs territory and liberate the eggs they've taken. And he's given the military's latest top secret weapon ... of course, it's the Angry Birds and a slingshot. And the puppets of the birds look pretty awesome. The story details the operative's struggle as he uses and kills the birds in attacking the pigs fortresses. His disillusionment over his mission, and eventually his triumph.
But even though it's meant to be rather comical, I think it would be far funnier if it had more of the Angry Birds in it. The ending has the operative saying "you wouldn't like me Angry ... Birds." Huh? What's the game about again guys? Don't get me wrong, I love Rooster Teeth's work. Red vs. Blue is some of the funniest machinima on screen. But if the name of the parody is Angry Birds, it helps to make them more of the focus. Like these guys did.
