Monday is world Emoji Day!
The film, about an emoji that simply can’t stick to just one expression, is due for release in cinemas on 11 August, 2017 in India.
This is a serious initiative, since Booking has conducted a poll to find out which emojis vacationers would most like to use. Check out some of Apple’s emoji movie banners below and see if you can figure out which movies they are!
This new data was released by Facebook as an infographic to celebrate World Emoji Day and the upcoming release of The Emoji Movie (which we’re still not sure how we feel about). This should come as no surprise to those versed in emoji; after all, this same symbol was even the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year in 2015.
The new emoji are technically a set of emoji that are launching as part of Unicode 10.0, the standard set for emoticons. Shigetaka Kurita created emoji – the word is a combination of the Japanese words for pictures and letters – for the Japanese telecom NTT DOCOMO.
They’re also wildly popular on Twitter, which regularly makes custom emoji for events and hashtags, and Instagram, where users can hashtag with emoji.
Although the movies aren’t for sale or changed in any way other than emoji banners, it’s still a fun way to try to guess the movie based exclusively on emojis.
The “calendar” emoji – a minimized version of Apple’s iCal icon for both its desktop and mobile app – shows the default date of July 17.
