Captain Underpants might be cutting loose on the big screens this weekend — but best-selling author Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man series has been wooing (and woofing up) underage book buyers for almost a year now…
“While dogs think people are God, cats don’t…They know better.”
If you’re into foreign films and cat flicks, then Kedi, a new flick about stray kitties roaming the streets of Istanbul, Turkey might be right up your alley….
War is hell…even for dogs, as we see in this upcoming Warner Bros. family flick, Max.
Yes, just in time for the holidays, Grumpy’s Worst Christmas Ever — a Lifetime movie — will soon be here to scrooge us all!
Get ready, blockheads, because Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the Peanuts gang are skedded to hit the big screen! (But don’t rush out to buy tickets yet since the film won’t be in cineplexes until sometime around November 2015.)
Let’s hope the new fancy-schmancy animation can stand up to the simple charms of Charles Schulz’s beloved cartoon classic. (THR)
No writer has consistently written better stuff on dogs in the past decade than Jon Katz, whose bestseller, A Dog Year, was adapted into an HBO movie starring Jeff Bridges — but he may have saved the best for his latest, Going Home: Finding Peace When Pets Die, a touching, no nonsense non-fiction guide to grieving and getting over the loss of your lovely pet.
There’s not many things that get me more excited than cool covers for dog books (okay, maybe a couple other non-dog book related things, too!). That said, Julie Klam has two covers that will make any dog book fan drool — and a handsome animated book trailer to boot!
Diane Keaton (Annie Hall) has a new dog movie out this spring with Kevin Kline called Darling Companion, which is rumored to be about a wife who loves her dog more than her husband…Ah, the joys of marriage!
Based on the book by J.R. Ackerley, My Dog Tulip, is a good, not great dog movie — mainly because I felt the storyline spent a little too much time focusing on Tulip’s desire to procreate. Not that I’m a prude by any means, but I digress…
Still, I couldn’t help but admire the film’s elegant, eye-popping animation and use of voice-over by Christopher Plummer — so it’s definitely worth a watch on Netflix.
