Angry Birds: From mobile screen to big screen 12:44 AM ET Wed, 18 May 2016 | 04:30

Rovio Entertainment’s transformation from a Finnish mobile game maker to a Hollywood producer isn’t unusual, according to the creator of the company’s most iconic game “Angry Birds”.

The plot of the 3D “The Angry Birds Movie”, which will be released in the U.S. on Friday, is similar to the games: Green pigs have stolen the birds’ eggs, making them very angry and setting them on a quest to recover the eggs.

Rovio bankrolled the production of the movie, four years in the making, for a reported sum of $73 million and hired Disney and Sony Pictures veterans to direct it.

Peter Vesterbacka, who’s known within Rovio ranks as The Mighty Eagle, told CNBC ultimately he wants Angry Birds to become as iconic as the likes of Mickey Mouse, Mario and Hello Kitty.

“For us, it’s all about the brand and the fans,” he said. “We have been very busy working on [creating] Angry Birds experiences in all forms and shapes for our fans.”

Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger: The Omaha ties that bind

In 1959, Warren Buffett met Charlie Munger, the beginning of a partnership that has spanned decades and created billions in corporate and personal wealth. Since their fateful meeting, they’ve built Berkshire Hathaway into one of the world’s most successful companies. Warren Buffett is chairman and CEO of Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway, where Munger serves as vice chairman, and is six years Buffett’s senior. We find the same things quite humorous (and) the things we deplore we agree on.” Buffett

Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger: The Omaha ties that bind

In 1959, Warren Buffett met Charlie Munger, the beginning of a partnership that has spanned decades and created billions in corporate and personal wealth. Since their fateful meeting, they’ve built Berkshire Hathaway into one of the world’s most successful companies.

“We’ve had so much fun in our partnership over the years,” Buffett told CNBC in a joint interview with Munger, who called the partnership “almost hilarious, it’s been so much fun.”

Warren Buffett is chairman and CEO of Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway, where Munger serves as vice chairman, and is six years Buffett’s senior.

Few relationships last as long or are as lucrative as their partnership. So what’s their secret?

“Obviously, we like each other a lot,” Buffett said. “We have minds that work the same way to a great degree. We find the same things quite humorous (and) the things we deplore we agree on.”

Munger added they “don’t agree totally on everything, and yet we’re quite respectful of one another.” Buffett told “On The Money” that whenever they do disagree, “Charlie says, “Well, you’ll end up agreeing with me because you’re smart and I’m right.”

Buffett adds he’s still looking for a comeback to that line. “I haven’t quite figured out the answer to that yet with 56 years of practice.”
