Emojimovie: Express Yourself REALLY IS a Real Film About Emoji

By Gary Cutlack on at

T.J. Miller, who people who spend their time watching US TV will know as a man from HBO tech comedy Silicon Valley, has landed a new job. He would appear to be proud about and happy to be openly associated with the forthcoming production Emojimovie: Express Yourself -- an actual real film based on the seemingly uncomplicated behind the scenes life of emojis.

The obviously-going-to-be-CG production has a plot, too, although it could easily just be 120 minutes of funny faces. According to Variety, the plot of the film follows an emoji named Gene who was born to "meh" parents but, due to a glitch, somehow has access to other kinds of emotions.

And look, Sony's even released a sort of pretend audition of facial expressions that Miller recorded:

It'll make the Tetris film look as thematically complex as Inception. Apparently, if it really isn't just an elaborate joke, Emojimovie will release some time in the summer of 2017. [Variety via Shortlist]
