20th Century Fox has released the first official teaser trailer for Tom Dey’s live-action adaptation of Brad Anderson’s long-running comic strip, “Marmaduke.”
Said to be like a “John Hughes movie with Dogs” here’s the official synopsis:
For Phil and Debbie Winslow, moving their family from Kansas to the O.C. is a big deal. For their enormous Great Dane “Marmaduke,” (voiced by Owen Wilson) however, the move means a whole new way of life. It’s chaos at home and awkward at work as the Winslows struggle to control their angsty teenage canine.
“Marmaduke” will star Owen Wilson (Marley and Me) with co-stars Emma Stone, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Ron Perlman, Judy Greer, Anjelah Johnson, Lee Pace, Steve Coogan, William H. Macy, George Lopez, Stacy Ferguson, Damon Wayans Jr., David Walliams, Amanda Seyfried and Jeremy Piven.
While the teaser doesn’t show much, it does reveal Wilson as Marmaduke. Also it’s a bit of a surprised to me that Fox went with a real dog instead of a full CG animal like Garfield.
