The new trailer isn’t nearly as funny as the first, but we’ll let it slide since it’s Christmas-themed, and it’s probably no secret by now that we love all things Christmas-related. It also gave us a smirk that the trailer is playing on the fact that cats are watching human videos on YouTube (like many of us watch cat videos). Cute — we see what you did there.
For those unaware of the movie, it will take place in a Manhattan apartment building where a dog named Max sees his world turned upside as he has to defend the building against an adorable white bunny named Snowball, who is raising an army of unhappy, abandoned pets that want to take revenge on all of the happy-owned pets. It’s a ridiculous concept, sure, but we’re super into it, mostly because Louis C.K. is involved.
The Secret Life of Pets will star Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Ellie Kemper, and more, and its release date is set for July 8, 2016.
