Just when you think Hollywood has run out of ideas….
Rewind to 1997, when the film Toy Story hit the screens. It was a marvellous wonder in 3D animated films and set the benchmark with animation.
Fast forward to 2007, and 3D animated films are a dime-a-dozen.
Proving case-point: The Emoji Movie.
Starring T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, James Gorden and Maya Rudolph, we follow the life of a smart phone text icon, Meh.
No… that’s his name.
Actually, it’s Gene, who is a multi-expressional emoji, who sets out on a journey to become a normal emoji. But it doesn’t really matter anymore, as the movie is about short message services and an imaginary world therein.
I’m giving up explaining – just watch the two minute sneak peek as it’s self explanatory.
Now, stop texting and make phone calls.
The Emoji Movie is out in cinemas 14th September, 2017.
