New Emoji character posters revealed :(

12.21.2016

You know, it's easy to shit (emoji) on something like this. While obviously a preposterously naked cash grab at any sort of recognizable IP, it doesn't necessarily mean THE EMOJI MOVIE will be terrible. I mean, I don't know about you, but I was pretty skeptical of THE LEGO MOVIE when it was first announced, and look how that turned out? Hell, what is ROGUE ONE, if not a naked cash grab at recognizable IP?

Anyway, here's some new character posters for the animated film:

Then again, ANGRY BIRDS is a thing. Let's not go overboard with the optimism.

Anyway, THE EMOJI MOVIE, starring T.J. Miller, Steven Wright, James Corden, and Ilana Glazer will be released in theaters August 4th, 2017 :/

Extra Tidbit: TJ Miller got his role in YOGI BEAR by auditioning for Ranger Smith next to a real life bear. He didn't get Ranger Smith, but got a part written for him based on the audition tape.

I don't get the parallels drawn to the Lego Movie, Lego has been a recognisable brand that actually had a relevent commentary around growing up and loss of imagination. I had no idea that Emojis were so culturally relevant that you could spin a movie out of them.....I can potentially see Sony Animation closing down in the next year or two after this. Ratchet and Clank whilst remaining true to the source could have been so much better and bombed as a result and I think Storks went the same way.

The movie put in that commentary. It isn't inherent in the product itself, and never was. For proof, look at the OTHER CG Lego adaptations before it, which were just predictably kiddy garbage.

It's not very often that I don't want to see a movie that much! This is clearly a sign of the creativity bankruptcy of Hollywood.

Why do we keep getting stupid ass movies like this?! This movie is obviously going to fail hard, even harder than Angry Birds and Ghostbusters did.

Might want to check your facts....

" Also there have been other dubious adaptations, like IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE being adapted from a popular Christmas card, of all things." Don't want to be the "Um actually" guy but the movie was adapted from the short story "The Greatest Gift" by Philip Van Doren Stern.

Yeah, the author got that totally wrong. It's not based on a Christmas card, but Philip Van Doren Stern sent his 21 page short story "The Greatest Gift" as a Christmas letter to a bunch of his friends since he couldn't seem to publish it through normal channels.
