Action, adventure, and dogs are set to come together in Superpower Dogs, an immersive, giant screen family adventure set to hit theatres late 2017. Chronicling the lives of real-life super dogs and their human companions, this documentary will be presented in IMAX and 3D. Using specially designed camera equipment alongside visceral CGI, it will allow audiences to experience the world as never before: through the eyes, ears and nose of a dog.
“Think James Bond meets dogs!” exclaims Taran Davies, one of the film's producers. The documentary will “put people in the heart of the action, whether it’s Newfoundland’s leaping from helicopters to save people from drowning, Labrador puppies training to rescue earthquake victims or Bloodhounds protecting endangered species in Africa,” explains producer George Duffield, adding, “Pet lovers are going to go crazy for this experience.”
The film will follow five real-life canine superheroes and their human partners as they brave earthquakes and avalanches, bring animal poachers to justice, protect people from danger, and lift spirits.
To capture these action-packed scenes requires a lot of pre-production work, from scouting locations to finding their “superpower” dogs, and figuring out the intricacies of capturing the spectacle of these incredible dogs at work.
Location scouting and casting is taking place now and filming is planned at locations around the world, including Italy, Kenya, Switzerland, Canada and the U.S. Think your dog has superpowers? Superpower Dogs invites you to nominate your super dog for feature in the film via their social media channels.
Either way, prepare to be wowed. As Davies notes, “The film will showcase the heroic accomplishments of dogs in a way that people have never seen before.”
The film’s release is set to coincide with the opening of the California Science Center's Science of Dogs exhibit in late 2017. We can’t wait.
