The Emoji Movie

Who the hell paid for The Emoji Movie?

8:00 AM on 07.31.2017 // Matthew Razak

This is why we can't have nice things

Guys, The Emoji Movie made $25.6 million this weekend. That puts it on track to easily eclipse its $50 million budget, and turn Sony a profit. That more than likely means there will be a sequel. There is a high chance that there will be a second Emoji Movie

What is wrong with us? Why do we do this? What are we teaching our children when we pay massive amounts of money to see a movie this bad? Who do I yell at? I know it's not cool to judge people for going to see a movie, but I'm judging. A lot of people went to see this movie. I mean, yes, there isn't a lot of kid friendly stuff in theaters right now, but, you can watch a ton of Disney stuff on Netflix and at least buy into a corporate overlord who puts some effort into their movies. 

So by law of averages someone here has to have bought ticket to this movie. Why? Please, just tell me why.

Thank god Dunkirk took number one or I'd probably be dead on the floor right now from a brain aneurysm.
