A story told through emoji. Could be a book, show, movie, or some other kind of story. Can you figure out what story is depicted below?

I made this on Android, so just in case it looks weird on a different platform, here's an image:

Hint:

The most iconic bit of the movie is this bit: enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ I think you better use picture, many computer can not show the emoji rightly (including mine) $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Sep 16 '16 at 4:25

    $\begingroup$ @MarioGarcia I saw it online somewhere and thought it would be fun to make one. I now know so many more emoji that are on my phone. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 16 '16 at 13:32

  • $\begingroup$ I was super close to giving a third hint which I imagine would have given it away relatively quickly. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 20 '16 at 18:28

I'm going with...

Matrix

Why?

The strange eyes first, meaning the drugs for Neo, a helicopter, Agent Smith... There is also the aliens attacking the spaceship, the cat...

Not sure 100%, but worth a try!

EDIT: After some investigation, rather than just guessing, I've found this might be the film:

Virus

I haven't seen the film, but after reading a bit about it I think it fits really good.

There are the robotic aliens, the fights, the boat having problems in electric storms. Also, someone having to runaway in a helicopter I believe.

  • $\begingroup$ Good guesses, but neither of these are correct. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 16 '16 at 13:29

  • $\begingroup$ I wouldn't call it cheating. I would note that the images are not all meant to represent what they literally are. For example, the pig nose is not representing anything pig-like or nose-related. Didn't even realize it was a pig nose, just looked like something from the movie. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 17 '16 at 1:40
  • $\begingroup$ Glad if this computerized translation doesn't hurt, @DavidStarkey, I sat on it for most of a day out of consideration but couldn't resist any longer. $\endgroup$ – humn Sep 17 '16 at 1:42
  • $\begingroup$ From your comment I guess the emoji is a depiction of the events in the movie and not a cipher. Therefore my most obvious guess is of course the Mel Brooks move, "History of the World: Part I" $\endgroup$ – abbaf33f Sep 17 '16 at 2:06
  • $\begingroup$ @jmb.mage You are correct (not about the movie title but about it not being a cipher) $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 17 '16 at 18:18
