Sometimes, everyone needs a hero. And when called upon, our faithful canine companions can be more impactful than any big screen superhero. Next year, IMAX is releasing Superpower Dogs, a new documentary that puts the spotlight on dogs from around the world who use their “super-power” talents to save lives. IMAX has dropped a new teaser for the film, which shows off a few of the four-legged co-stars of the movie as they spring into action in exotic locales.
The teaser gives viewers a brief glimpse of the dogs that will be featured in the film, including a very large pouch called Reef, who can be seen in the image at the top of the page. He’s a Newfoundland lifeguard in the Italian Coast Guard. The bloodhounds surrounded by children are named Tipper and Tony, and their job is to save endangered species in Africa.
Other dogs who will be starring in the film include Ricochet, a dog who serves people with special needs; an avalanche rescue dog named Henry; and Halo, a puppy trained to work with an elite disaster response team. The common denominator for all of these canines is their bravery in the face of danger and their unconditional love for the humans around them. They could only be more heroic if someone gave them superhero style capes to wear.
Superpower Dogs was produced by Cosmic Picture, and it will be released in IMAX theaters on March 15, 2019. What do you think about the first teaser? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
