New 'The Emoji Movie' Trailer Reveals The World Inside Your Phone

There's a chance that The Emoji Movie won't be terrible. Look, a lot of us thought a Lego movie would suck, and that turned out great. So there's reason to stay open-minded, okay?  That said, this new trailer leaves me feeling "meh".

If you ever wanted to see the emoji world bustling inside your phone, then this is your lucky day. TJ Miller voices Gene, an emoji that *gasp* can have multiple expressions whereas others only got the one they were "born" with. Anna Faris, James Corden, Patrick Stewart (as the poop emoji), Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Coolidge, and more voice the annoying emojis you keep sending to your friends. Just stop it already.

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite 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 (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.

The Emoji Movie opens August 4th, directed by Tony Leondis.
