"A Dog's Way Home" to Premiere in Chinese Cinema

With the Year of the Dog ending in January next year, what better way to celebrate it than with a new film that features the story between a man and his "best friend."
The movie "A Dog's Way Home" is scheduled to open in Chinese theaters on January 18, a week later than its North American premier. The story was adapted from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron and features the story of Bella, a mixed-breed puppy who travelled 600 kilometers to return to her owner Lucas.
The film was produced by Columbia pictures and the Chinese studio Bona Film Group.
A special promotional event was scheduled on December 26 and allowed the public to see three clips of the film where Bella is seen fighting against wild wolves and rescuing a tourist from a snow slide.
It is also the continuation of the film "A Dog's Purpose", also adapted from one of Cameron's books. The film raked up to 606 million yuan, with 47% of its ticket sales coming from China.
