The monkey with the eyes closed, the woman dancing, the pile of poo… All make their appearance in the first advance of ‘The Emoji Movie‘, the film of Sony Pictures and Columbia that explores the universe of our smartphones and gives life to the most popular emoticons that appear in all conversations.
According to the official synopsis; Textópolis is a bustling city where all your favorite emoticons live, waiting to be selected by the user of the phone. In this planet, each emoji has a unique facial expression, except in the case of Gene, an emoji enthusiast who was born without a filter and has different expressions. Willing to be “normal” like everyone else, Gene asks for help from his best friend “Hi-5” and the code-breaker of bad fame, “Jailbreak.” Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” wandering through all the apps on the phone, each in its crazy and funny context, to find the code that will repair Gene. But when an unexpected threat arises that will endanger the phone, the fate of all emoji will depend on these three friends who will do everything possible to save the world before it is eliminated forever.
The film was directed by Anthony Leondis (‘The Road to El Dorado’, ‘Home on the Range), from a script co-written with actor and screenwriter Eric Siegel (‘Men at Work’). In the original version, Sofia Vergara will give voice to the emoticon of the woman dancer, whereas T.J. Miller, Patrick Stewart, Anna Faris and Jennifer Coolidge, among others, also have their respective assigned figures.
The Emoji Movie premieres next July 28. Below you can see the trailer of the film.
