The Emoji Movie was always a bad idea according to the Internet. People mostly saw the announcement as Hollywood running out of new and original ideas and were anyway not expecting much from Sony Pictures Entertainment’s animation flick. The production house went ahead with the movie anyway, and dropped its first international trailer on May 16.
