Watch: Trailer For 'Max,' Which Is Basically 'American Sniper' With A Dog

While Clint Eastwood cleared up the lingering political questions around “American Sniper” by declaring his film is “anti-war,” there will be no such confusion in the upcoming “Max.” A family friendly, flag-waving tale of patriotism and one special canine, it’s basically “American Sniper” with a dog.

Directed by Boaz Yakin (“Fresh,” “Remember The Titans“) and starring Thomas Haden Church, Miles Mussenden, Robbie Amell, Lauren Graham, Luke Kleintank, Jay Hernandez, Joseph Julian Soria and Dejon LaQuake, the film tells the tale of a special military pooch who loses his handler in battle and is taken in by the soldier’s grieving family. After saving lives in the Middle East, the dog inspires everyone back home in this heart-warming tale led by”the Air Jordan of dogs.” Whatever that means.

“Max” opens on June 26th.
