Second Trailer for Samurai Comedy 'Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank'
"We need a new samurai!" Paramount has debuted the second official trailer for the animated movie Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, made by HB Wink Animation and GFM Animation. This for-the-whole-family comedy is being released in theaters nationwide in July in the middle of the summer - no streaming for this one. In Paws of Fury, Hank, a loveable dog with a head full of dreams about becoming a samurai, sets off in search of his destiny. With help from a reluctant teacher to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai in a place full of cats and team up with the villagers to save the day. Michael Cera plays Hank, with an ensemble cast including Mel Brooks, Ricky Gervais, Samuel L. Jackson, George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh, Kylie Kuioka, & Cathy Shim. This is a fun trailer that riffs on both Jurassic Park and Star Wars while focusing on the action and humor, clearly hoping to get some folks interested in this original idea. Looks like a good time! Check it out.
