‘Dog’ Trailer: Channing Tatum Heads on a Road Trip with a Former Canine Soldier

MGM

Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for Dog, a Channing Tatum-starrer that looks to be a heart-warming one for the canine lovers out there.

Tatum plays former Army Ranger Briggs, who, having gone some way on finding a little recovery, is keen to get back to work in some capacity. He gets an opportunity to do so – on one condition: take a Belgian Malinois named Lulu on a road trip to the funeral of her late owner, a fallen soldier.

Tatum co-directed the picture (his first credit at the helm) with longtime collaborator Reid Carolin, who penned Magic Mike and produced various Tatum pictures (Magic Mike, 22 Jump Street, White House Down).

It looks like a charming little film – although, I nearly always approach these types of films with trepidation. Like many out there, an emotional dog film can absolutely wreck me.

Dog, also starring Jane Adams, Kevin Nash, Bill Burr, Q’orianka Kilcher, Ethan Suplee, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Nicole LaLiberté, Luke Forbes, and Ronnie Gene Blevins, will be in Australian cinemas on February 17th and U.S. cinemas on February 18th.

Official synopsis for Dog:

The film is a road-trip comedy that tracks two hard-charging former Army Rangers paired against their will — Briggs (Tatum), and a Belgian Malinois named Lulu — as they race down the Pacific. Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, they’ll drive each other completely crazy, confront the possibility that pet psychics are real, and begin to reckon with the one thing they were trained never to do: surrender.
