Man's Best Friend Returns from the War in the First Trailer for 'Max'

"Animals can come down with post-traumatic stress the same as people can." If for some reason you thought American Sniper would be better with a dog than Bradley Cooper, we have some good news. Max is just that, as the film from Remember the Titans director Boaz Yakin follows a dog who has just returned from being a military canine in Afghanistan, but has trouble adjusting to life back in a family's home. It's literally the same kind of war drama we've seen before, but through the eyes of man's best friend. It has some flares of E.T. and Air Bud along with the typical PTSD drama, but it does look pretty cheesy. Watch?

Here's the first official trailer for Boaz Yakin's Max, originally from Yahoo:


Max is directed by Boaz Yakin (Safe, Remember the Titans) from a script he wrote with Sheldon Lettich (Double Impact, Bloodsport). The story follows a military dog named Max that is traumatized after his soldier handler’s death in Afghanistan and is sent home where it is adopted by the bereaved family. He bonds with the soldier's troubled 14-year-old brother (Josh Wiggins), and together, they begin to heal one another and discover a secret about the soldier's death. Thomas Haden Church, Lauren Graham, Robbie Amell, Jay Hernandez and more star in the film Warner Bros. will release Max on June 26th this summer.

Me too. I hate it when they use different songs in stuff. Like, what's even the point?

It's this decade's The Cranberries: "Dreams".

Not bad, I guess. But it sure would be nice if we could have a heart for our human soldiers the way we do for friggin' dogs...

and just like that, it turns political... you're thinking WAY outside the box.

There's no such thing as an apolitical war movie. Like it or not, this isn't just about a dog.

There's nothing political about the observation that a spoiled generation of Americans are more concerned with the next feel-good Hollywood film than the next-door neighbor who returns from war without a job.

Call me a cynic, but this looks awful.

First I tought I'll cry my eyes out because of watching this (Military honor + dogs!). Than I watched this about halfway and I was like ''What is this shit'' and stopped it.
