Trust American actor TJ Miller to come up with the quirkiest ways to promote a film! The Deadpool actor literally sailed to Cannes in the French Riviera for his upcoming film, The Emoji Movie. Parasailing onto a speedboat off the beach, the 35-year-old actor made a safe landing, only then to fall into the sea and was completely drenched as he performed for the rest of the media present at the event.
The stunt preceded his unveiling of the first official trailer for the film, in which Miller stars as Gene, an emoji that teams up with the notorious code-breaker Jailbreak (Anna Faris) on an adventure through a teenager’s phone.
The trailer started after Miller pressed a big button, which also launched confetti into the air. “Confetti canons?” screamed Miller. “I mean Sony’s gone all out. Hashtag Emoji Movie.”
The Emoji Movie co-stars James Corden, Steven Wright and Rob Riggle, along with Patrick Stewart who plays the Poop emoji. Directed by Tony Leondis and produced by Michelle Raimo, the film was scripted by Mike White and Eric Siegel.
