The Angry Birds Movie will have a unique after-credits scene, one that requires viewers to do some extra work in order to watch but also gives out a special addition to the popular game on which the movie is based.
The movie spun off from the popular Rovio video game is hitting theaters this week, and many people are taking to the internet to find out if it's worth staying all 97 minutes of running time to see a post-credits scene. It turns out there is a scene -- one that actually unlocks a new area in the video game -- but it will require moviegoers to break a cardinal rule of the movie theater and break out their cell phones.
In order to see the after-credits scene for The Angry Birds Movie, those in the audience will need to open up the game on their phone and run it during the final credits. The credits contain an inaudible digital watermark that activates the bonus content, VideoGamer noted.
"By going to see The Angry Birds Movie in the cinema during the opening weekend and sticking around for the credits, audience members with the game open on their device get treated to more Movie Magic --- a whole new area of the game to explore and an additional exclusive movie clip that can't be seen anywhere else but inside Angry Birds Action!" game maker Rovio noted. "Movie Magic works in the game by detecting an inaudible digital watermark that plays only behind the end credits."
