Lately it feels like animated Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank are in short supply, at least on the big screen. And it is that the much-mentioned pandemic has especially alienated the little ones from the cinema, and to show the few proposals that are released in this format. In an attempt to remedy that, Paramount is coming up with a new offering titled Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank.Now, with the premiere closer, the first critics corroborate those opinions, placing Joseph Kosinski's film as one of the best among Tom Cruise's extensive filmography.
Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank tells the story of an unlucky hound named Hank, who finds himself in a town full of cats that needs a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain's evil plan to wipe his town off the map. He must turn to a reluctant teacher who must train him so that our helpless friend assumes the role of samurai of the town and can join the villagers to save the day. The only problem with him is that cats hate dogs!.
Featuring the voices of Michael Cera as Hank, Ricky Gervais, Samuel L. Jackson, Mel Brooks, George Takei, Aasif Mandvi, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, Michelle Yeoh, Kylie Kuioka, and Cathy Shim. And with the voices in Spanish of Juanpa Zurita, Faisy and Karla Díaz THE SAMURAI DOG: THE LEGEND OF KAKAMUCHO opens in theaters on August 4.
This new cartoon debuts in American theaters on July 15, which in the original version is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Cera and which is freely inspired by Mel Brooks' Midday and a Half Fire.
If once Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank was until recently with the title of Blazing Samurai, it is because its story is a free reworking of a legendary film by Mel Brooks, a half day of fire, which originally sounded Blazing Saddles.

In its original version, the film, which debuts in US cinemas on July 15, and of which we show you a new original trailer below, counts on the voices of Michael Cera, Samuel L. Jackson, Ricky Gervais, George Takei, Djimon Hounsou , Michelle Yeoh and also the aforementioned Mel Brooks.

A new trailer for Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank has been released by Paramount Pictures to promote the animated comedy starring Michael Cera and Samuel L. Jackson.

Hank must sharpen his fighting skills and learn to work with his feline "comrades" to fight off the impending threat. However, there is one thing that cats hate dogs, including Hank.
