'Rock Dog' still exists

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (5 votes)

Good news, everyone! Rock Dog is not dead! It even has a release date, again, at least for China; July 8. The movie still doesn't have a North American release date yet (though IMDB has some further international dates); however, the movie is a Chinese/American co-production, and features a cast of Americans with an American director (Ash Brannon), so the plan has always been to release the movie in America, apparently. Eventually. Probably.

If it does get that American release date, it will be the fourth confirmed fully anthropomorphic animal world movie released here in 2016, counting (fellow Chinese/American co-production) Kung Fu Panda 3, Zootopia and Sing (with Spark and Sly Cooper bringing the possible total up to six, if they, like Rock Dog, could be bothered to get a release date out there).

The new Rock Dog logo looks kind of like Guitar Hero and Zootopia's got together and had a baby.

Furs won't care about this movie. It doesn't have a fox as a main character. Plus it has to deal with rock music and not shitty ass electronic music.

Your rating: None

I mean for some unspeakable reason people have kept Try Everything on the Hot 100 for the last month so I guess quality doesn't matter too much. XP

I'm a different furry with different opinions.

It never made the top 40; by certain definitions, that makes it not even a hit (it did go to number one on the "Kid's Songs" list, which is kind of funny, though).

I'm still hoping it gets an Oscar Best Song nomination, though, for reasons that have nothing to do with the actual song; there could be a lot of really interesting ways to perform it on the Oscar show.

I think I like the leaked trailer from last year more in terms on content, but I like the structuring of this one more. I'm still very excited for the movie, and I'm actually heading to LA in a few hours so maybe I'll stop by the HQ of Mandoo Pictures! :D

Oh, and first ever Alligator anthro I've ever seen so plus 10 points for not just having mammals. XD

There’s Louis, a trumpet-playing anthro alligator in Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” -- not counting Walt Kelly's Albert Alligator, who is more comic-book and -strip than animated.

And King Gator in "All Dogs Go to Heaven". Both "All Dogs" and "The Princess and the Frog" are set in New Orleans, or the bayous just outside it.

Wow, fuck this movie. I've honestly had it with shit like this where wolves are always the devil or something dumb shit like this movie is trying to perpetuate. Feels like around 2011 things started to get bad for wolves again.

Your rating: None

You must have liked Disney's current "The Jungle Book", then. Akela and his pack of jungle wolves are portrayed as noble beasts.

It was definitely better than the old version where it seemed like the movie producers wanted to get the wolves out of the picture as soon as possible because it was unthinkable for them to have wolves as anything other than ebola in the form of a mammal.

Your rating: None

No, crossie, you're the editor now, you can't troll the wolves!

BUT I WANT TO SO BAD!

Your rating: None

If you think wolves being portrayed as the devil is bad, think of poor vultures. They are far more misunderstood. I have met vultures. PLAYED with a vulture. He was so friendly and gentle. They are so sweet...I wish people would see that.

Your rating: None

I encountered a vulture decades ago. I was driving in the San Fernando Valley just outside of Los Angeles; I turned into a quiet side street, and I almost ran over a vulture that was picking at roadkill. It was the size of a two- or three-year-old child. It immediately turned and ran along the street away from me to get up to soaring speed and flew away. If you aren't expecting it, and I wasn't, it's an unforgettable experience.

“Report: Duelling Chinese Businessmen Are Sabotaging The Release of ‘Rock Dog,’ Director Ash Brannon Caught in the Middle”. The Cartoon Brew website has the story in detail.

http://www.cartoonbrew.com/feature-film/report-duelling-chinese-businessmen-sabo...

Basically, the Chinese production company and the distribution company are at odds. The distributor, who is obligated to screen “Rock Dog” beginning July 8, is doing so by booking it into only seven theaters throughout China at bad times. The same Chinese distribution company owns the AMC theater chain in the U.S., so you can imagine our chances of seeing “Rock Dog” here. Read the Cartoon Brew post for the full story.
