A DOG'S PURPOSE tells the story of many dogs
"What is the meaning of life … and why does food taste so much better in the trash?"
After National Dog's Day comes to a soapy feature film about dogs and their many lives, the first trailer for A Dog's Purpose has arrived, and it contains a variety of canine breeds, plus a few life lessons.
"If I can get you licking and loving, I have my purpose."
Released by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, A Dog's Purpose stars Josh Gad (The Comedians, Beauty and the Beast) as the voice of the dog who keeps getting reincarnated and, over the course of his many lives, finds meaning in his relationships with various humans played by Dennis Quaid, K.J. Apa, John Ortiz, and others. Does this sound like something you'd be interested in watching? Check out the trailer below to figure that out!
The official synopsis reads:
Based on the beloved bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, A Dog's Purpose, from director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Dear John, The 100-Foot Journey), 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. The family film told from the dog's perspective also stars Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton, Britt Robertson, K.J. Apa, Juilet Rylance, Luke Kirby, John Ortiz and Pooch Hall.
"Released in 2010, Cameron's novel received plaudits from book reviewers who labelled it an emotional read, while it also proved to be a hit with readers, too, as it remained a New York Times bestseller for forty-nine weeks. Obviously, this soon brought it to the attention of Hollywood, and Universal Pictures will be the studio to bring it to the big screen. Audrey Wells, who previously scribed George Of The Jungle, Shall We Dance? And Under The Tuscan Sun, has adapted the novel, while Academy Award-nominated director Lasse Hallstrom has overseen the film. Hallstrom previously directed The Cider House Rules, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Chocolat and The Shipping News, which suggests that there's some potential in A Dog's Purpose after all."
