MGM has revealed the official Dog trailer for the forthcoming buddy comedy film, starring Channing Tatum, who is also co-directing with Reid Carolin. The video, which you can check out below along with the poster, features a former Army Ranger as he goes on a road trip with a misbehaving former Army dog named Lulu in order to attend the funeral of Lulu’s former partner.
The film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on February 18, 2022. Its current theatrical release will pit the film against high-profile competition in the form of Sony Pictures’ Tom Holland-led Uncharted, Paramount Pictures’ long-delayed animated pic Rumble, and Universal Pictures’ action thriller Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
The film is co-directed by Reid Carolin and Channing Tatum from a screenplay written by Carolin, based on his story with Brett Rodriguez. It stars Channing Tatum, Jane Adams, Kevin Nash, Q’orianka Kilcher, Ethan Suplee, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Nicole LaLiberté, Luke Forbes, and Ronnie Gene Blevins.
“Dog is a buddy comedy that follows the misadventures of two former Army Rangers paired against their will on the road trip of a lifetime,” reads the synopsis. “Army Ranger Briggs and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois dog) buckle into a 1984 Ford Bronco and race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, they’ll drive each other completely crazy, break a small handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards in order to have a fighting chance of finding happiness.”
Dog is produced by Rodriguez, Gregory Jacobs, and Peter Kiernan. Betsy Danbury and Ken Meyer are executive producing. It is a production by MGM Pictures, and Free Association/Gregory Jacobs Production in association with FilmNation Entertainment.
