Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have released the first trailer for The Secret Life of Pets 2. The sequel will feature a few changes and some new additions as well. One of the most notable changes is Patton Oswald stepping in to replace Louis C.K, who voiced Max, the lead dog, in the first film.
Meanwhile, Jenny Slate, Kevin Hart, and Eric Stonestreet are all returning to reprise their respective roles. But the sequel will be making some new additions that include Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, and Pete Holmes. Check out the trailer, below.
An official trailer has been released for Killing Gunther, an action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie is written and directed by Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam, who is making his directorial debut.
The story follows a group of assassins who have grown sick and tired of Gunther (Schwarzenegger), the greatest hitman alive. To fix this problem, they join forces in hopes of simply making him not alive anymore. An easy enough plan on paper, but one which proves to be a tad bit more challenging than anticipated.

As a child of the ’90s, I fondly remember watching Disney cartoons from Tale Spin and Rescue Rangers to Darkwing Duck. But I imagine there isn’t as big a classic as DuckTales. The series has now been rebooted, since that is the norm nowadays, and it has managed to assemble quite a cast of comedians. From Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan, who will voice Huey, Dewey, and Louie respectively, to David Tennant who will voice Scrooge McDuck. Other talents include Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and Kate Micucci as Webby.
We previously saw the cast sing the classic theme song, but there wasn’t much else. Now a new trailer has popped up online giving us our first look at the upcoming revival. Check it out below.
Recently we saw a teaser for the new DuckTales coming to Disney XD in 2017, but it didn’t show much.
While we await a full trailer, eager fans will be excited to watch a recently released video. The video features the cast of the new DuckTales, including the new voice of Scrooge McDuck David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), singing the classic theme song. Tennant is joined by Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Inside Out), who voices Louie; Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies), who plays Dewey; Danny Pudi (Community, Knights of Badassdom), who will be Huey; Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, Raising Hope), set to voice Webby Vanderquack; Toks Olagundoye (Castle, The Neighbors), who voices Mrs. Beakley; and Beck Bennett (SNL, Sing), as the new Launchpad McQuack.
You can watch the cast sing the classic theme song below.

The whole idea that there is a life that humans do not know about when they live in their residence is not exactly original storytelling. We’ve seen it in The Brave Little Toaster and three Toy Story films. While those films focused on inanimate objects, we hardly ever seen a film that centers on pets, and if you’re a pet owner like myself, you often wonder what exactly goes on when you are way – unless you have cameras to watch over them.
So like those animated films, The Secret Life of Pets explores an exaggerated version of that narrative. While Illumination entertainment tells a hilarious story that is a culmination of every story of a pet trying to get back to its master mixed with Hanna Barbara cartoon vibes, it doesn’t quite reach the emotional level of tear shedding you would see in a Pixar film. Not a huge takeaway, but the film feels more like a Tom and Jerry cartoon that goes on a bit longer than it should. Read my full review below.
