‘Dogman’ Trailer: Caleb Landry Jones Is A Killer With A Passion For Dogs In Luc Besson’s New Thriller

If there’s any director who needs to return to his roots, it’s Luc Besson. The French filmmaker behind The Professional, La Femme Nikita, Lucy, and more, went a little too big with his massive sci-fi film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. But he returns to the gritty world of dangerous loners with Dogman, which stars Caleb Landry Jones in what looks to be a tour de force performance.

The story centers on Douglas, a New Jersey man who had been abused as a child for his love of dogs, which he freely admits is greater than his love of family. Literally thrown to the dogs, they protected him rather than attacked him. Douglas would reciprocate that love in kind, but only for canines. Humans, on the other hand, better watch out.

Also in the cast are Jojo T. Gibbs, Christopher Denham, Clemens Schick, John Charles Aguilar, Grace Palma, Iris Bry, Marisa Berenson, Alexander Settineri, Michael Garza, and Tom Leeb.

Dogman opens in select theaters on March 29th, with a wider rollout on April 5th. As a huge Besson fan, this movie has me pumped to see him return to form.
