James Corden set to star in unlikeliest movie ever about emojis

16/12/2016
Just when you think they've made a movie about everything - someone comes up with this idea.
 
Coming out mid-2017, The Emoji Movie is set to be a film solely based around those tiny little faces you put at the end of your text messages.
 
In the first teaser trailer, we're introduced to 'Meh', a character who is, well, "meh".  And the dislikes on YouTube seem to echo the same feelings.
 
If you wanted to know what exactly an Emoji movie could be about - check out the description below:
 
Emoji unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favourite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions.
 
Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). 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.
