Synopsis: A dog that helped US Marines in Afghanistan returns to the U.S. and is adopted by his handler’s family after suffering a traumatic experience.
Release Date: June 26, 2015
Thoughts: Warner Brothers is betting big on the Max moniker in 2015. In May the studio releases their forever-in-production highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road and a month later Max arrives. While the trailer, sadly, falls victim to the widespread epidemic of previews giving simply too much away, I think this one looks like a surefire winner, especially considering the massive popularity of the similarly war themed American Sniper (also released by Warner Brothers) in 2014. The at-risk situations for man’s best friend will have even the most stoic gent sobbing into their hankies and Max looks ready to wring those tears out with the best of them.
