Top 10 Reasons Why the Emoji Movie Will FailChaoslordG1 The Emoji movie is a animated movie set for release in 2017. It is yet another excuse to be hip and cool and nothing absolutely nothing about this bucket of 💩 sounds like a good idea. So here are reasons why this can not be a good movie.
The Top Ten
I first heard they were making an emoji movie last year. I thought it was gonna be some stupidly long YouTube video that had poorly animated stock emojis. Lol nope. Its an actual movie, or should I say pandering, lazy, cash-grab. - Cartoonfan202
Really? An emoji movie? That is probably going to suck. - AnimeDrawer
Seriously did any one ask for this? - ChaoslordG1
Who would think of an idea about emojis? What story could you possibly make out of that? - Pinkarray
Clearly it's a 'bums on seats' move, probably rush released seeing as emojis are very popular now, yet the best they could do for a trailer so far is a boring sad emoji scene and a cringeworthy attempt at humour (yes, featuring a poo emoji). How else could they get any more desperate for money than this? - Entranced98
No wonder the other Sony Pictures Animation movies (except for the original two ones and Aardman movies) are severely overrated! >:(
Just check out the first trailer, it has little to nothing about the plot. - ChaoslordG1
Based on what we know so far it seems like another, don't change who you are and you are great just the way you are story. - ChaoslordG1
True, using emojis on comments is decent, but making a movie about it? - AnimeDrawer
Lego did it, but that's different. Legos can do ANYTHING.
Emojis? They're just emotions... that are images... that... that's it. - mattstat716
Really? Popeye was one of my favorite cartoons and is way better than some face symbols. They should have never scrapped it. It looks way better than this movie. - AnimeDrawer
Sony could have brought back a timeless classic with the animation test being very well done despite it being by Sony but they just had to make a movie about emojis! The smurfs movie looks way better compared to this! - Gabriola
I can't believe that sony scrapped the most iconic cartoon character from emoj is. w hat is ne xt? m eme mov ie? p op culture movie? I want a movie based on classic franchines like NiGHTS, felix the cat, and pacman. I want a Pacman movie.
The Jailbreak emoji rips off Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie. - Cartoonfan202
The animation may be decent, but let's be honest here. All the characters are just emojis with limbs. That's it. Also, like Cartoonfan202 said, the Jailbreak emoji is basically a rip-off of Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie. From appearance all the way down to personality! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I bet they're going to release toys, apps, clothes, books, snacks, soundtracks, and just about everything you can think of for this lame movie. - Cartoonfan202
So far they have manipulated the guys at Spotify and Candy crush. - ChaoslordG1
Marketing has mainly bugged and bored me at the same time. I am so not looking forward to Emomovie: Express Yo Ass!
Just immediately after the second trailer for The Emoji Movie was released, people all over the Internet were already saying that The Emoji Movie was ripping off Wreck-It Ralph and Inside Out. I wasn't surprised considering I already knew that The Emoji Movie was going to try to make an immersive world of emojis in a smartphone owned by a human character. The Emojis getting covered in cotton candy instantly reminded me of the Sugar Rush kart game from Wreck-It Ralph and the boy student getting caught playing with his smartphone in class also reminded me of Riley's first day at her new school. Come on, Sony. We've all seen this before. Don't be surprised if this ends up being a massive financial and/or critical failure. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I want to see smurfs the lost village. They cancelled smurfs 3 for this reboot. Emoji movie looks awkward.-trollsfan536
I like Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Hotel Transylvania, and Open Season, but this Emoji Movie makes me want to slam myself into a tree... - ZootopiaFan
Good for you, I will not beat you up for having different opinions from me. :) - The Ultimate Daredevil to ZootopiaFan
Cloudy With A Chance O' Meatballs: 1 = Good. 2 = Bad.
Hotel Transylvania: 1= Meh. 2=Meh.
Open Season: 1 = Decent. 2 = Decent. Anything past: Why...?
Emoji Movie doesn't look like it has great predecessors... :/ - mattstat716
They didn't do well since the late 2000s.
Don't watch this movie
May the 4th never arrive. - mattstat716
I wouldn't be surprised if it earned a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes just right after its release. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Not that I'm defending the movie but...could you try elaborating on why that is? - alphadan12
Prepare for a painful dosage of cringe:
"No, go ahead. Finish that sentence." - Poop Emoji, The Emoji Movie (2017)
Really? Is that the best they could come up with for the teaser trailer? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Just go on youtube and search "The Emoji Movie but every time it's cringey spongebob gets shot".
He gets shot about 9-12 times. - mattstat716
