LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Some people can't seem to leave their cellphones alone -- even while at the movies. Now, there's word that some moviegoers will be urged to press their smartphones into service while watching a movie. The "caw" comes from the creators of the upcoming "The Angry Birds Movie" movie -- which says it will ask audiences to whip out their phones during the end credits and point them at the screen. Rovio Entertainment will drop in a code that will generate an exclusive level for a new Angry Birds-themed game. So far, Rovio says it hasn't gotten any blowback from theaters for asking moviegoers to be ready with their cellphones.
