The new romantic comedy THE DOG WEDDING opens in theaters March 11. This fun, smart movie has something for everyone and is the first-ever film to explore the popular dog ‘puptials’ trend!
The film stars beautiful German acclaimed actress Rosalie Thomass, who was just awarded Best Actress at the Bayerische Filmpreis (Munich). Her Co-Star is World Wrestling Entertainment wrestler Matthew Bloom, known worldwide as Head Coach of WWE “NXT”, the fast-growing WWE brand, and popular WWE Network program.
The film is also the big screen debut for 100 canine couples who won “The Dog Wedding” Photo Contest. Over 500 photos of dogs in wedding attire, from 41 states and 12 countries, garnered 250,000 votes (including two from Sarah Jessica Parker). The winners, which total 3 million social media followers, include rescue ambassadogs Titus & Hailey, celebrity rescue Chloe Kardoggian and the inspirational Simon The Blind Pug. Their photos grace the film’s unique opening credit sequence.
Love at first sniff for two bulldogs sparks an unlikely romance between an overworked German businesswoman and an American wrestler in this bark-out-loud comedy. For the newly enlightened executive, sent to Arizona to close a pickle factory, their dog wedding becomes the surprise battleground to test her lifelong obedience to her CEO/father. Making her U.S. film debut, German star Rosalie Thomass plays opposite WWE’s Matthew Bloom, Bernhard Schütz and a delightfully eccentric cast.
The exclusive New York engagement begins March 11 at Cinema Village. The exclusive Los Angeles engagement begins March 18 at Laemmle’s Music Hall. The film’s Premium VOD pre-theatrical release begins February 12 on iTunes, Verizon Fios and Dish Network.
A share of every ticket sold benefits canine charities, including Canine Companions for Independence, Long Island Bulldog Rescue, MSPCA-Angell and Juno’s Place. Over $20,000 has been donated already from the film’s sold-out premieres.
