Happy National Dog Day! In celebration, I wanted to pass around this NEW trailer and images for Universal’s A Dog’s Purpose which will be in theaters on January 27, 2017. If you’re a dog lover like me, you’re going to want to go see this movie! We have 2 black labs, Mack and Keira, who may get on our nerves at times but we love them dearly. Both Mack and Keira are rescue dogs and we do not ever regret rescuing either of them. We love the companionship that they offer and how good they are with our toddler.
Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog’s Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), shares the soulful and surprising story of one devoted dog (voiced by Josh Gad) who finds the meaning of his own existence through the lives of the humans he teaches to laugh and love. The family film told from the dog’s perspective also stars Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, John Ortiz, Juilet Rylance, Luke Kirby, Peggy Lipton and Pooch Hall.
A Dog’s Purpose is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland, TV’s Gilmore Girls). The film from Amblin Entertainment and Walden Media is executive produced by Alan Blomquist and Mark Sourian, and it will be distributed by Universal Pictures. www.adogspurposemovie.com.
