These days, it seems emojis are everywhere — you just can’t get away from them. If you live in a big city, you can’t go more than five minutes without seeing one grinning at you from the side of a bus or through a shop window.
If you can’t stand emojis, it’s about to get a whole lot worse. But if you love them? You’re about to enter heaven. Why? Because The Emoji Movie is hitting cinemas across the United States on July 28.
No, that wasn’t a typo. There really is a movie about emojis. Later this week, the 3D computer-animated comedy film will be released by Columbia Pictures.
And it’s not (theoretically) a B-side junk movie. Voicing the characters are well-known stars such as James Corden, Patrick Stewart, Sofia Vergara, and Christina Aguilera.
Without giving too much away, the basic storyline follows a “multi-expressional emoji” who wants to become a “meh” emoji like his parents. Don’t ask.
If this sounds like torture to you, you should probably stop reading now. If not, you’re in for a treat.
