A brand new trailer and nine new character posters have been released for The Secret Life of Pets, the upcoming animated feature feauturing the voice talents of Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet and many more.
Talking animals have often been a factor for cinematic success. Most recently, for example, Disney knocked another one out of the park with Zootopia, which has topped $US853 million worldwide. Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, the Despicable Me and Minions studios teaming up for the fifth time, are no doubt hoping for that kind of success with this one – and it could very well ace it.
The new trailer below provides a great look at the upcoming picture, which tells of Max, whose life as a favourite pet is turned upside down when his owner brings home a new dog named Duke. Before long, the two must team up to stop Snowball, a bunny determined to take revenge on pets and their owners.
It looks like a charming film, one that ticks of the right boxes to offer families a good night out. Louis C.K., Hart and Stonestreet make their animated feature debuts here, and, so far, they’re more than right for the job. Yep, this one’s on the list.
Be sure to check out nine newly released character posters beneath the new trailer.
The Secret Life of Pets, also featuring the voice talents of Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks, will open in the U.S. on July 8 and in Australia on September 8.
