The Emoji Movie: Trailer manages to divide the internet within hours of releasing
The international trailer for The Emoji Movie has managed to divide the internet with reactions good, bad and ugly.Updated: May 17, 2017 17:06 IST
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.
Within just a few hours since release, the trailer got quite a lot of attention, but one cannot really say that it was a good thing. While some social media users did approve of it and thought that it could be a great movie, many bashed it for being boring and lacking imagination. What was the nail in the coffin? Many even noticed similarities between the movie and three of the most popular animated flicks of recent times — Inside Out, Wreck It Ralph and The Lego Movie. Have a look at the trailer below:
Well, now that you have watched the trailer, here is a look at some of the best (and worst) reactions the internet had for it.

I think it's weird that we're all shitting on the emoji movie. I mean, it's at least more orginal than another fucking Batman movie...— Good Ol' Joey G (@colonel2sheds) May 16, 2017

The Emoji Movie is such a blatant rip off of Inside Out, I can't believe how similar it is, it also has elements of The Lego Movie— Lewis (@DampSlug) May 16, 2017

How much did the emoji movie pay you to cancel Popeye? A long time cartoon that everybody was excited for. Way to go!

I suspected that The Emoji Movie would be a ripoff of The Lego Movie or Inside Out, but more and more it's looking closer to Sausage Party.— ToddInTheShadows (@ShadowTodd) January 18, 2017
