Meet the 'Superpower Dogs' in First Trailer for IMAX's Adventure Film
"Not all heroes walk on two legs." IMAX has launched the first teaser trailer for a special "IMAX Original Film" from Cosmic Pictures titled Superpower Dogs, playing on the big (big!) screen in March of 2019. This teaser is playing in front of showings of Pandas, the other IMAX nature documentary now in theaters. This looks wonderful!! I love dogs so much. They're the best. Superpower Dogs is a 55-minute IMAX film that "takes audiences on a journey around the world to meet incredible dogs and showcase the extraordinary real-life 'superpowers' they use to protect endangered species, save lives in avalanches and earthquakes and make the world a better place." We'll meet: Halo, a puppy training with a fire captain; Henry, an avalanche rescue expert; Reef, an Italian lifeguard dog; Ricochet, a surf legend in California; Tipper and Tony, the Bloodhound brothers leading the fight to save endangered species in Africa. I'm so watching this in theaters.
Here's the first official trailer for Daniel Ferguson's doc Superpower Dogs, direct from IMAX's YouTube:
Description from IMAX: Join an immersive IMAX adventure to experience the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world's most amazing dogs. In this inspiring true story, our best friends are also real-life superheroes. Journey around the globe to meet remarkable dogs who save lives and discover the powerful bond they share with their human partners. Follow "Halo", a rookie puppy training to join one of the most elite disaster response teams in America. Meet "Henry", an avalanche rescue expert in the Canadian Rockies, "Reef", a Newfoundland lifeguard with the Italian coastguard, "Ricochet", a Californian surf legend helping people with special needs, and the Bloodhound brothers, "Tipper and Tony", who are leading the fight to save endangered species in Africa. As we discover the incredible abilities of dogs and the astonishing science behind their superpowers, we'll never look at our best friends the same way again. Superpower Dogs is directed by filmmaker Daniel Ferguson, of the docs Jerusalem and Last of the Elephant Men previously. IMAX will release Superpower Dogs showing in IMAX theaters exclusively starting on March 15th, 2019 early next year. Who wants to see this already?

They need to stop making films about dogs or I'll get one. And I'm not a dog lover ...

I don't hate them Bo and I think it has nothing to do with them either. I'm more referring to the people that overemphasize love for the animals. In fact, I was never inclined to like some dog lovers since some of them annoyed me with constant pointing out that love for animals is something special. I don't think it is but I respect those who feel that way, but I'm not interested in anything they are. However, that won't change the fact that I had a dog and a cat as a kid and I was good to them. I even brought one cat home and had to fight with my parents to keep it (of course, it all ended well), but I was never fascinated by common life with the animals as I grew older. Nothing noble or good or lovable or anything there for me. Just not my thing. I'm better with people than with animals. Always was ...

Sometimes a special dog will touch your heart when you least expect it and a bond develops you never thought possible. It is as if they can read your thoughts and you know they would lay their life down for you. They never betray you or lie and you are their whole world. There is a reason people become fanatical. My dogs saved my life when I lost my husband and then when his family turned on me. They are my world and I would not have it any other way.

And I wouldn't argue against that. It's just, I wouldn't venture into it either. I have other kind of life and it's good. But of course, there are people around me with loving animals and I'm cool about it (why wouldn't I be?), but I learned to live without a pet (whether it becomes a friend or not) and am doing nice with people. But, do enjoy your life, it sounds warm and good. Thanks for your reply. Cheers ...
