I couldn’t believe it then but now I do have to. After the hit that was The Lego Movie (2014) studios immediately started looking at similar franchises which had the potential to become box office gold. It is why we are getting a Minecraft movie and it is also why we are getting The Emoji Movie.
Sony Animation, the studio behind the film, has released the first teaser. At the start of the trailer we are greeted by the “meh” emoji whose job is basically letting us know that the film is coming out next year. The gag runs along for a better part of the minute as the character is seemingly uninterested with everything (why would you do that when you have the whole collection of emojis at your disposal?).
Anyway, the first look at the film is not really that promising personally. Maybe when we get to see more of it next year, there’ll be some excitement for it. Until then the first impression of the film will be, just like the character “meh”.
