J. Miller parasails into Cannes for 'The Emoji Movie'


The cast also includes Anna Faris as Jailbreak, Maya Rudolph as Smiler, Jennifer Coolidge as Mary Meh, Jake T. Austin as Alex. I wouldn't know, and neither would you...presumably this is meant to generate money from that portion of the U.S. viewing audience we don't understand; the kind that drove Fuller House to three seasons.

The trailer opens with Miller's character accidentally expressing the wrong face when called on for a text message - something unprecedented in the secret emoji world.

Parasailing onto a speedboat off the beach, actor T.J. Miller made a safe landing, only then to fall into the sea and perform the rest of the media event soaked.

His flight was to hype the animated film "The Emoji Movie", in which the "Silicon Valley" star voices a yellow emoji. Looking - and more importantly - feeling one way his entire life doesn't quite sit too well with him. but he assures his folks that when the day comes for him to be the Meh emoji, he'll do them proud. There's nothing daring or clever about this film, but there are vomit jokes and poop jokes, so I guess that's supposed to appeal to little kids who like smartphone emojis. The Emoji Movie is set inside the world of one boy's phone where the messaging app Textopolis is home to all the emojis.

The Emoji Movie is released in cinemas on August 4. 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. The film is directed by Tony Leondis, produced by Michelle Raimo, and scripted by Mike White and Eric Siegel.
