Illumination’s THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS Gets First Trailer, Poster and Photos

Illumination Entertainment Animated Film

Universal and Illumination have released the first teaser trailer, photos and poster for their animated movie The Secret Life of Pets.

The film features the voices of Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Burress and Albert Brooks. I am assuming the lack of dialogue is because it’s a teaser.

The fifth fully-animated feature-film from Illumination, the same studio that created the Minions and Despicable Me, is directed by Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney from a screenplay penned by Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul, and Ken Daurio.

The Secret Life of Pets is set to open on July 8, 2016 next summer.  Hit the jump to check out the teaser, images, and poster below.

That metal poodle in the end was a master kick. Hope they knock it out of the park.

For one bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That’s when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners, or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks.

The building’s top dog, Max (Louis C.K.), a quick-witted terrier rescue who’s convinced he sits at the center of his owner’s universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke (Stonestreet), a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo finds themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy-yet-cunning bunny named Snowball (Hart), who’s building an army of ex-pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity… all before dinnertime.
