DC League of Super-Pets (2022, D: Stern) -- V: Johnson, Hart, McKinnon, Krasinski




Dwayne Johnson stars as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated action adventure feature film “DC League of Super-Pets,” from director Jared Stern.

The film also stars the voices of Kevin Hart (the “Jumanji” and “Secret Life of Pets” films), Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live,” the “Magic School Bus Rides Again” films, “Ferdinand”), John Krasinski (the “Quiet Place” films, “Free Guy”), Vanessa Bayer (“Saturday Night Live,” “Office Christmas Party,” “Trainwreck”), Natasha Lyonne (“Show Dogs,” “Ballmastrz 9009”), Diego Luna (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Maya and the Three”), Marc Maron (“Joker,” “GLOW”), Thomas Middleditch (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie”), Ben Schwartz (“Sonic the Hedgehog,” “Duck Tales”), and Keanu Reeves (the “Matrix” and “John Wick” films).

In “DC League of Super-Pets,” Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime in Metropolis side by side. When Superman and the rest of the Justice League are kidnapped, Krypto must convince a rag-tag shelter pack—Ace the hound, PB the potbellied pig, Merton the turtle and Chip the squirrel—to master their own newfound powers and help him rescue the superheroes.

Stern, a veteran writer/consultant on the “LEGO®” movies, makes his animated feature film directorial debut, directing from a screenplay he wrote with frequent collaborator John Whittington, based on characters from DC, Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Patricia Hicks, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Jared Stern. The executive producers are John Requa, Glenn Ficarra, Nicholas Stoller, Allison Abbate, Chris Leahy, Sharon Taylor and Courtenay Valenti.

Stern’s creative team includes production designer Kim Taylor (“The LEGO® Ninjago Movie”) and editors David Egan (“Game Night,” “Vacation”) and Jhoanne Reyes (“Teen Titans GO!” “Young Justice”). The music is by Steve Jablonsky (the “Transformers” films). Warner Bros. Pictures Presents A Seven Bucks Production, “DC League of Super-Pets.” The film will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in theaters internationally beginning 18 May 2022 and in North America on May 20, 2022.

I had no idea this was a thing until we saw the trailer ahead of Ghostbusters. Looks to be a lot of fun.

Same here. I don't really watch kiddie animated stuff anymore now that mine has grown but the trailer looked good and I may have to make an exception for this.

Honestly looks better than most of DC's output over the last several years.

Looks cute. My kids will want to watch it and that’ll give me an excuse to watch it too.

Will Supergirl be riding Comet cowboy-style like she did in the comics?

Okay, I got to stop drinking because I wasn't even aware there was a first trailer.

Not sure if I’ll see this in the theater, but it looks fun. I’ll for sure watch it on HBO Max.

I just got back from seeing it. I quite liked it. Fun and very charming movie with lots of laughs. Johnson and Hart were both very funny. Keanu Reeves role was small, but he was pretty funny as Batman.

Not much to analyze. Good movie to take the entire family to IMO or just relax and have a good time.

There are two post credit scenes. Both are humorous. One features a cameo from someone in an upcoming DC movie. It's pretty amusing.

AMC also gave out a free comic. But I had to ask for it as I read it was being given out this weekend.

This was pretty cool. Johnson dressed up as Krypto and surprised a family who was looking to adopt a pet.

This was a fun movie. Focused on several characters we don't see in DC media a lot, so that was nice.

One of the best surprises of the whole year for me - I was rather "meh" about the trailers that came out for this, but this is a really fun animated movie, with lots of jokes for die-hard DC fans and perhaps the best Superman we've seen since on screen since Man of Steel (including a few hints of John Williams' iconic score in the film). I thought it was a blast, and hope there's a sequel.

Pretty shocked at how much I liked this one. It was a really pleasant surprise. I think the weakest part of the movie was actually Dwayne Johnson. He just didn't have the nuance of the rest of the cast. Things felt more forced with him. Someone with more comedic chops or more layers to his voice could have added a lot more to the film, but it was still a lot of fun.

Took the kids to see this one. I thought it was a very mediocre kids movie spackled over with a bunch of i.p. to make it seem better than it actually was. Kate McKinnon was the highlight for me. The kids liked it, but were not overly enthusiastic. But then my 8 year old doesn't really care about superheroes and a lot of stuff went over the head of the 4 year old.
