When it was first announced, The Emoji Movie sounded like a joke — the inevitable apex of big budget studio movies based on products least likely to inspire a feature-length narrative. But Sony Pictures Animation has followed through on its threat to unleash an animated adventure featuring a walking and talking poop emoji, and we have the first teaser trailer to prove it.
Honestly, I like emojis (emoji?) just fine, but I only have about 15 or 20 I rotate through regularly. But, times they are a-changin', and most people would rather send icons than engage in actual conversation with another person. As a result, 51 new, somewhat socially-conscious emojis (seriously, does it have an "s" or not?) will be available next summer.
