Owen Wilson, Emma Stone and Judy Greer in the second Marmaduke trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’ve been looking forward to MARMADUKE since we first learned Owen Wilson would be voicing the popular Great Dane. Then I thought the first trailer was kind of cute, although it didn’t really tell us much about the film. Now the second trailer has arrived and all of a sudden, I’m not quite as excited. There’s a right way and a wrong way to make a movie like this and it feels like they might be leaning towards the wrong way. The wrong way includes; too many silly jokes, bad one-liners and redundant jokes. I’m not saying the whole movie will be like that, but that’s what I get from this trailer.
The film stars the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Emma Stone, George Lopez, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jeremy Piven, Steve Coogan, Fergie and Keifer Sutherland. It features the actual people of Lee Pace (who I loved in ‘Pushing Daisies’), Judy Greer and William H. Macy. Tom Dey directs and the film will be released June 4th.
