Lorelai and Max Re-United!


The first trailer for Max, Lauren Graham’s upcoming war dog movie is out!


We last reported on Max in May 2014 (somehow sidestepping misleading references about Lorelai and Max Medina) and the details remain the same:

Max is the story of an army dog returning from Afghanistan, who returns to the U.S. to be adopted by his handler’s family after a traumatic experience. He bonds with the family, in particular a 14 year old boy and together they help each others’ healing process.

It doesn’t sound like the kind of movie where the dog talks.

Lauren plays the boy’s mother, a woman who has lost her eldest son to war but now has to heal her youngest. That big chunk of marble, Thomas Haden Church (Sideways) also stars.

Check out the 2-minute trailer here. It’s not overly spoiler-ific.

Directed by Boaz Yakin (Remember The Titans), this could have more feel-good guts than you might expect. US release date is 26 June 2015.

Look good to you? What do you think of Thomas Haden Church as Lauren’s on-screen husband?

Who would you like to see her on-screen-married-to? I can see sparks flying with a younger man… say Ryan Gosling?

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    :O) I doubt he’ll measure up to the Great Doggy Swamy though…
