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?
