New Marmaduke Trailer Arrives
And leaves us feeling dog tired of CG

26 March 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo Movies

Forget that Scott Pilgrim nonsense – the one trailer you know you’ve been waiting to see has also arrived. Ladies and gentlemen, the full theatrical promo forMarmaduke.

Yes, drink in the sight and sound of a giant pooch voiced by Owen Wilson, who travels across country with his family to their new home in California (cue The OC's theme tune for a hugely topical music joke). Our hero has some trouble making friends with the local canine population (including Kiefer Sutherland as a gruff Doberman) before winning over everyone and getting the girl, in the shape of a collie with Fergie’s voice.

We really don’t feel like we’re the target market for this film – kids will no doubt lap up the slapstick action and “witty” repartee between the animals like dogs with a fresh bowl of Winalot, but after the onslaught of Garfield, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and G-Force, we’re just a little sick of chatty critters.

Still, if you can’t get enough of dance sequences featuring dogs, go fetch.
