Dog Movie: Trailer, Release Date, Cast & Everything We Know So Far

Channing Tatum has given us some powerful performances from his roles in comedies such as undercover cop Greg Jenko in 21/22 Jump Street to playing the role of a male stripper in the Magic Mike movies.

After taking a break of a couple of years, Tatum is seen in full force with multiple forthcoming projects on the way, along with his (co) directorial debut: Dog.

Here’s what we know so far about the “Dog Movie”.

When Will Dog Be Released?

Previously, Dog was scheduled to hit theatres last year on February 12, 2021, before the film was postponed to release in summer, July 16, 2021, which would have had it a competition against Warner Bros live-action/animated basketball blockbuster Space Jam: A New Legacy and Sony’s horror sequel Escape Room: Tournament of Champions.

After getting pushed back twice, Dog will now finally be released in theatres on February 18, 2022.

The comedy-drama will be facing some strong competition as Sony’s much-awaited Uncharted film starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg and Michael Bay’s action flick Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Eiza Gonzalez both releasing the very same weekend also.

MGM will probably move it up one weekend for Valentine’s Day since this looks like it could be a proper date movie.

Earlier, the filming for the movie was scheduled to start from the middle of 2020 however due to the coronavirus pandemic, the team had to bring changes in their plans.

Dog Movie Plot

When we hear the title, we believe that the movie must be about dogs. In reality, the film tells the story of US Army Ranger Riggs (played by Tatum) who is called to send military Belgian Malinois Lulu to the funeral of her dead handler, Nuke.

While Lulu and Riggs originally kick off on the incorrect foot, their cross-country journey makes them close to each other and they begin to feel a true bond with each other and start trusting one another also.

The project is indeed a personal one to Tatum, getting inspiration from his own departed canine companion.

The comedy-drama seems to attract dog lovers, but the key question that is on everyone’s mind is, “Does the dog live?” We will have to wait and see when the film rolls out in cinemas, but as this appears to be more of a feel-good crowd-pleaser, the safe answer is probably no. Though that certainly won’t stop us from tearing up anyway.

Tatum’s longtime creative partner Carolin will also be joining as co-director and this didn’t come as a surprise for those who have been keeping a check on Tatum’s career.

Since the first Magic Mike in 2012, Carolin has been working together with Tatum, having written the film as well as its sequel in 2015. Carolin also served as an executive producer on several other films starring Tatum along with 22 Jump Street and White House Down.

Dog Movie Cast

Besides Tatum and Lulu, Jane Adams will join the cast to play the character of Tamara.

Though you may not know Adams’ name, she has turned up in a lot of high-profile projects that also include Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, the recent Emmy-winning HBO Max series Hacks, and the 2017 Twin Peaks revival.
