Emojis have forever changed the way we communicate and express ourselves. I often select emojis based on my mood or state of mind. The Emoji Movie hit theaters today, and we are feeling all kinds of emoticons about the new film. Sony’s computer- animated film will take moviegoers on a fun “app-venture!”
Earlier this week, we also hit The Emoji Movie premiere in Los Angeles California. We were elated to see the amount enthusiasm for the new film.
The Emoji Movie created by Sony Pictures, unlocks a secret world that lives inside your phone. Gene (T.J. Miller), is a exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Gene is determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, in Textopolis, (city where emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user). In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression. 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.
TJ Miller looked dapper in his yellow emoji suit, and his lovely wife Kate was all smiles at the premiere. Tj stars as Gene, a multi-expressional emoji.
Gene is uncertain of his future, but his malfunction saves the day. My favorite part of the film is when Gene gets stuck in the Candy Crush game. It is just hilarious!
Maya Rudolph looked adorable in this unique floral knit dress.
Maya plays the voice of Smiler, an evil emoticon who wears a big grin. She is deceptive and also controlling.
What’s your favorite emoji? I often send kisses to the favorite people in my life…
This movie is super cute and has a great message!
Mario Lopez appeared to be a little “pooped out” at the celebration.
Glozell looked bright and bubbly in yellow at the premiere. Love her!
The Emoji Movie is hilarious and great for the entire family. Go meet Hi-5, Gene, Jailbreak, and the rest of Textopolis NOW in theaters everywhere!
