Preview: The Secret Lives of Pets
From the beginning of this blog, I have been quite preoccupied on covering reviews and pretty much neglected the second half of this category, which is previews. I will be making an effort in the next couple of months to cover animated films that will be coming out, what I take from their trailers and my opinion if it is one to watch or not. To start here is the trailer for The Secret life of Pets. I came across the teaser for it about a year ago I believe, and it is something I was really looking forward to. As I finish up a few projects, you will see trickles of posts here and there, and I will get a chance to settle back into my old schedule!
The Secret Life of Pets is a 3D animated feature length by Universal’s Illumination Pictures, starring Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart. The story centres in on a little terrier Max (Louis C.K) who absolutely loves his owner Katie, but one day he finds his life disturbed when Katie brings home a large new sloppy friend by the name of Duke, and that is when their adventure begins. From what I take from the trailer, its looks like we are up for a witty take on the life of a pet, and the humour so far seems promising plus I most mention the cute and vibrant illustrative style!
Although, my compliments for it are a-plenty, it does feel like a rehash of Toy Story except everyone is an animal.
The Secret Lives of Pets will be in cinemas on 8th July 2016 in the United States, but for us over here in the UK we get it a two weeks earlier with it being released on June 24th 2016.
