Sony is releasing The Emoji Movie later this year (28 July in the US and 4 August in the UK), and the first full trailer for it can be seen after the break. Fair warning: the jokes are predictable and not at a high standard, and it all seems like an attempt at remaking Wreck-It Ralph, The LEGO Movie and Inside Out, but without the heart that those three films had. Then again, it's just a trailer.
The Emoji Movie Trailer is directed by Tony Leondis, and this is the synopsis:
The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
