The EMOJI Movie comes out this weekend and presents the one question that was on nobody's mind: What would it be like to make Wreck It Ralph, but with emojis instead? We take a look at other properties we just didn't ask to be made into films.
The Mattel icon currently has 34 animated films (straight-to-DVD or television films) and a live-action film on the way. Anne Hathaway is currently in talks to play Barbie. The script is said to be turning Barbie more into a film about female empowerment and identity. We hope the film to be good, but Mattel doesn't have the best luck transforming their properties into film.

The hit phone application sought to take its success to film with The Angry Birds Movie. The film was a minor success, raking in $349 million off a $73 million budget. Unfortunately, kids can't type their own reviews or this film would have probably been a bit higher in the ratings. The film holds a 44% Rotten Tomatoes score and a 43% Metacritic score, with the reviews being mixed at best. The box office haul and mixed reviews have been enough for Sony to order a sequel, blandly called The Angry Birds Movie 2. Noticing a trend with Sony naming sequels.
