Channing tatum Dog is a new movie in which the 21 Jump Street actor appears, and not actually his personal dog. It sounds like cheating on our part, but Tatum is not only the star of the project, but also co-directed it, so it’s Channing Tatum’s just as much. Dog as is Channing Tatum’s dog. Either way, the trailer for the new film, which seems to take a road-trip riff on the Turner & Hooch formula, has been released and you can watch it below. Co-directed by Reid Carolin and Channing Tatum (both in their first feature film but having previously collaborated on the Magic mike series), the MGM feature will hit theaters on February 18, 2022.
In a tweet promoting the film’s first trailer, Tatum wrote, “This process of making @DogTheFilm has been one of the craziest journeys of my life! Plus if you like watching me being bitten by a dog, it will be a very rewarding and funny movie for you. ” Joining Tatum and the Dog in the new movie are Jane Adams (Twin Peaks, A Series of Unfortunate Events), Kevin Nash (wrestling legend, John Wick star), Q’orianka Kilcher (Yellowstone, Color Out of Space) Ethan Suplee (Remember the Titans, Mallrats), Emmy Raver-Lampman (The Umbrella Academy, Central Park), Nicole LaLiberté (Twin Peaks, Dexter), Luke Forbes (Atlanta, SWAT) and Ronnie Gene Blevins (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Must ).
The studio’s official description for the film reads: “DOG is a buddy comedy that follows the misadventures of two former Army Rangers who were paired up against their will on the journey of a lifetime. Army Ranger Briggs (Channing Tatum) and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois dog) dons a 1984 Ford Bronco and heads down the Pacific coast in hopes of making it to another soldier’s funeral in time. Along the way, they’ll drive themselves completely insane, break a handful of laws, narrowly escape death and learn to let their guard down so they have a chance to find happiness. “
