The Secret Life of Pets Debuts New Trailer and Poster

2 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

For their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. The studios released the film’s new poster (see below) and trailer (see above) recently.

Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, and Kevin Hart make their animated feature-film debuts in The Secret Life of Pets, which co-stars Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, and Albert Brooks. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy produce the film directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2), co-directed by Yarrow Cheney, and written by Brian Lynch and Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio.

Personally, I’m ready to get behind any animated film that features a dog as a central character. Wasn’t Dug one of the greatest things about Up (2009)? I have to say, »

Chris Renaud on animation, getting trailers right, Gru in Despicable Me and The Secret Life Of Pets...

Heading into cinemas later this year is the new film from Illumination Entertainment, The Secret Life Of Pets. Director Chris Renaud previously brough us Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 and The Lorax, and The Secret Life Of Pets lands on June 24th in the UK. Following the release of the new trailer for the film, Renaud spared us some time for a chat about the movie's progress.

Here's that new trailer first, to whet your appetite...

And here's how the interview went...

How far along are you with the production? Is it finished now?

We have a bit to go. We’ve probably got about another eight weeks of animation – roughly – so that’s kind of the most active part of production, obviously. And then we’ll be finishing lighting and rendering beyond that. »

The Secret Life Of Pets' Story Comes to Light in New Trailer!

28 January 2016 9:31 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

So far actual plot of The Secret Life Of Pets has been a bit of a mystery. It's been largely going off the whole "what do pets do when their owners leave?" gimmick. And while that's all well and good, a film can't survive on a gimmick for too long. The teaser and trailer we've seen thus far, while charming and cute enough to sell to the target audience, haven't done much to tell us about what the movie will actually be about.

Now, with the second trailer, we finally know what story the filmmakers are trying to tell.

Check out the trailer below!

From what we can gather from the trailer, The Secret Life Of Pets tells the story of Max, a dog who's more than content with the life that's been given to him. But that perfect life is dashed to pieces when his owner brings home another dog named Duke. »

Despicable Me Team Introduces You To The Secret Life Of Pets With New Trailer

28 January 2016 9:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After spawning a lucrative franchise in Despicable Me and those seemingly omnipresent Minions, Illumination Entertainment and director Chris Renaud are partnering to shed some light on The Secret Life of Pets.

Sharing directing duties with Renaud on the animated feature is Yarrow Cheney, and today Illumination and Universal have rolled out the first full-length trailer showcasing just what our furry companions get up to when we’re not around. Like a stylized twist on the Toy Story set-up, The Secret Life of Pets opens with Louis C.K.’s loyal and wide-eyed canine Max, living out his life as best friend to Katie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt herself Ellie Kemper.

But that’s all about to change with the introduction of Max’s new brother, Eric Stonestreet’s Duke. That’s a knock on his status as Katie’s center of attention, although when the pair are led astray by the New York compound, »
