WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Marmaduke (Davidson) is a large Great Dane who, despite a big heart, can’t seem to stop getting into all sorts of mischief. His biggest challenge comes when he is entered into a dog show, where he must show the world that he can be a well-behaved dog…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The popular comic-strip character gets a fully-animated reboot that offers more slapstick opportunities, with SNL alumni Pete Davidson voicing the mischievous Great Dane himself.
