You don’t get a lot of animated features that sneak up on you these days, but the marketing promotion for Rock Dog seems to have been drowned out by award season buzz over the last few months. With no connection to something you already know, and an odd-sounding plot, the film hasn’t managed nearly enough attention recently, but some new clips will hopefully change that.
The film revolves around the Tibetan Mastiffs who protect Snow Mountain from wolves. Life is rather simple for the dogs, until one day Bodi (Luke Wilson) finds a radio and decides that he wants to be a rock-and-roll star. From there, the story wanders a familiar road that involves chasing dreams, defying fathers, and exploring beyond the world you know, but if these latest nuggets can be believed, it brings it all together rather well.
The film boasts an impressive cast – Jk Simmons, »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
This Past Weekend:
Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop. Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »
