It feels like every Summer its the same now - disappointing box office

A Johnny Depp film was a flop, a Michael Bay film was utter wank, a film about emojis turned out to be really bad, something with Will Ferrell in it somehow managed to be shit... I mean what are the chances? #-o

I would just say most people are just savvy on what's going to be film gold or rancid shit these days. No mystery there.

By all accounts that Emoji film was the viewing equivalent of a F2P game, the most cynical, vile marketing buried in an excuse for a film.

I have no idea, I didn't watch it, just read some reviews.

Considering how little of my headspace the film has occupied, it's probably not surprising that I never even considered that it'd be designed to sell apps. Still, I'm impressed that they managed to make what I already assumed to be an utterly awful excuse for a film sound even worse.
