WATCH: The Beautiful POPEYE Movie That Was Scrapped For The EMOJI MOVIE
The Emoji Movie is currently batting a perfect zero at Rotten Tomatoes.
Sony scrapped Genndy Tartakovsky of Samurai Jack fame’s POPEYE origin story (below) for that steaming pile.
Actor T.J. Miller who starred in The Emoji Movie had this to say recently:
The lead voice actor for The Emoji Movie insisted in an interview Thursday that the movie is a very, very important way of fighting President Donald Trump’s administration, rather than just a film about talking faces.
Sitting down with HuffPost, comedic actor T.J. Miller trashed his former co-workers on HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” saying they did not do enough to stop Trump.
“Right before the election … I asked, ‘How much money did you donate, you Hollywood elites? How much did you donate to Hillary Clinton’s campaign?'” he recounted. “And everybody in the cast said nothing. They hadn’t given a dollar.”
