This may be hard to believe, but there is actually a movie coming out based on emojis.
Sony Pictures announced it yesterday with this tweet:

The legendary actor, Patrick Stewart, will be playing the character “Poop,” which is based off the poo emoji. Stewart is best known for being in the Star Trek and the X-Men movies.
The plot will follow an emoji who goes on an adventure in a teenager’s phone.
From IMDB, the storyline will be:
“The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. 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. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.”
Where the thinking emoji ponders about the redundancy of an emoji movie? https://t.co/6YtXzdAdtD

The Emoji Movie is definitely a sign of end times, but I'm not gonna pretend I don't want to see a poop emoji voiced by Patrick Stewart.
