    And according to the movie's Facebook, the poop emoji's name is Poop Daddy. No, really. Yeah, I don't see this working out.

    This movie looks like a giant poop emoji.

    This is one of those things that is just going to become a joke among the industry. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear this was some kind of parody.

    Angry Birds, Sausage Party and now this. Sony Pictures Animation has jumped the shark.

    Yeah sure. Make an emoji movie with a character made of Poop and I'm sure your movie will make ALL THE MONEY

    Looks and sounds terrible. I'm willing to bet it's gonna have internet slang such as swag and yolo in it.

    “Over six billion emojis are texted every day, and emojis have become a universal language that transcends age and culture. The power of emojis is that they allow you to express yourself in a fast and very fun way, and that is what our movie is about: self expression.

    I can't understand emojis half the time. Call me old fashioned but I find the Roman alphabet easier to understand. And the characters are self-expressive. They look like your stereotypical kids movie characters. The lead. The dumb guy. And the edgy girl. Doubt it's gonna be good.

    If there's anything positive I can give kudos for, it's that at least this trailer properly capture's the audience's reaction.

    There's being dead on arrival, and then there's going out of your way to make sure you will be the bane of mainstream animation. The character animation is pretty good, but they can only do so much with these designs.

    Looks like I'm going to be skipping this (unless the reviews turn out to be spectacularly good).

    I must be a total sucker for self-referential humor (it really is that self-aware) as I'm not at all getting the apprehension especially after watching that exact teaser.

    Looks like it might be a decent-good movie.

    I'm surprised the teaser has more likes than dislikes. Granted, it's not by a whole lot, and the number for both isn't that big, but I thought this would be something people would be quick to hit the dislike button on.

    If it does good in the box office, I may see it.
