A Dog's Purpose Trailer

"If I can get you licking and loving, I have my purpose." Aw, this looks adorable. Universal has debuted a trailer for the movie called A Dog's Purpose, directed by Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallström (who also made the movie Hachi: A Dog's Tale ). Told from a dog's perspective, which is provided a voice by Josh Gad, the film does indeed attempt to show what a dog's purpose is - especially in connection with humans. The family film also stars Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, Juilet Rylance, Luke Kirby, John Ortiz and Pooch Hall. There's more than one dog and they all look so friendly. As a huge dog lover, I have to say, this plays right to my emotions. Bring on the doggie love, can't wait to see this.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Lasse Hallström's A Dog's Purpose, direct from YouTube:

Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog's Purpose 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. A Dog's Purpose is directed by Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallström, of the films What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules, Chocolat, The Hoax, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Safe Haven, The Hundred-Foot Journey and Hachi: A Dog's Tale previously. The screenplay is by Cathryn Michon, adapted from W. Bruce Cameron's novel. Universal will release Hallström's A Dog's Purpose in theaters starting January 27th, 2017 next year. Who's in for this?

    No. And not because it looks cheesy. Because I don't cry.

    It's a no for me. BECAUSE it looks cheesy. And I'm a dog owner. I'll just watch Homeward Bound again, or Milo&Otis.
    • Max was pretty decent.

        I gotta be honest, I can't watch a lot of movies about animals, because I've been tainted by Old Yeller, Where the Red Fern Grows and Turner and Hooch. Marley and Me - NOPE. Max - NOPE. Animal centric movies are hard for me to watch. Especially if they die! That and rape scenes. They REALLY bother me.
