Sony Pictures Ireland and Fighting Blindness are teaming up to host The Angry Birds Movie Charity Premiere in support of Fighting Blindness in Movies@Dundrum, on Sunday May 8th. Fun in the foyer starts at 1.30pm, and the film screens from 2.00pm

On the day there will be face-painting, an appearance by the Angry Birds themselves, and lots of prizes and surprises in store. Tickets are just €7 or for a family ticket for four for €25 and are available to buy here.

Angry Birds takes audiences to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage, as well as Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Irishman Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.

Fighting Blindness are an Irish, patient-led charity with a vision to cure blindness, support those experiencing sight loss and empower patients

Angry Birds is released in cinemas nationwide on May 13th.
