Paramount Drops ‘Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank' Clips

Michael Cera and Samuel L. Jackson face off in two new ‘Training Montage’ videos, a prelude to the animated comedy coming to theaters July 15; tickets are now on sale! 

Samurai training continues in two new just released montage clips (including a sing-along!) from Paramount Pictures’ animated comedy Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. Starring funnymen Michael Cera, Ricky Gervais, and Mel Brooks, the film hits theaters July 15.

In the film, hard-on-his-luck hound Hank (Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain's (Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson), our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team with the villagers to save the day. The only problem is cats hate dogs!

The voice cast stars comedy legends Brooks, Gervais, and Cera with additional comic relief provided by Aasif Mandvil and Gabriel Iglesias. Rounding out the cast are Jackson and George Takei.
