Movies starring dogs tend to be entertaining family movies. That probably also applies to the upcoming “Dog” with Channing Tatum.
In the past few years, Channing Tatum has made himself a bit rare on the big screen. Many of his engagements consisted only of voice recordings and small supporting roles or cameo appearances. Fans who have already missed him can be happy: In 2022 the 41-year-old will be seen in two films – alongside Sandra Bullock in the adventure comedy “The Lost City” and in the buddy comedy “Dog”. And now there is a trailer to marvel at:
“Dog” is about the former Army Ranger Briggs, who gets the opportunity to clear his name and to rehabilitate himself. To do this, he has to pick up Lulu, the dog of a deceased colleague, and bring it to the funeral in good time. But what initially sounded like child’s play for Briggs turns out to be pure chaos. The Belgian Shepherd Dog or Malinois does not even think of sitting down nicely and enduring the drive in the 1984 Ford Bronco. The bitch is absolutely transverse. Only when Briggs slowly begins to understand her does the trip to hell turn into a road trip in which the hearts of the two open to each other.
“Dog” is Channing Tatum’s directorial debut
Incidentally, Tatum will not only appear in front of the camera in “Dog”, he also made his directorial debut here alongside co-director Reid Carolin, who wrote the script together with Brett Rodriguez. The fact that Tatum chooses a film with a dog as the focus for his first job as a director probably has to do with a personal stroke of fate. At the end of 2018, his pit bull bitch Lulu – yes, the dog in “Dog” also goes by this name – died of cancer. He dedicated “Dog” to her:
“A little over a year ago I came back from a road trip where I said goodbye to my best friend. Now I’m making a film that was inspired by her. “
An absolute classic among dog films is “A Dog Named Beethoven”, which Prime subscribers can stream via Amazon at no additional cost
In addition to Tatum and his animal co-star, Jane Adams, Q’orianka Kilcher, Bill Burr, Kevin Nash, Skyler Joy as well as Ronnie Gene Blevins and Nicole LaLiberte also star in the comedy “Dog”. “Dog” starts in this country on 7. April 2022 in theaters. Perhaps it will also become an animal film classic?[display-posts orderby="rand"]
