Underdog (R1) in December
Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Underdog on 18th December 2007 priced at $29.99 SRP. Jason Lee, Jim Belushi, Amy Adams and Patrick Warburton star in the story of Shoeshine, an unassuming beagle (voiced by Lee) who flunks out of K-9 training and falls into the clutches of the unscrupulous Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage).
Through a secret experiment gone awry, Shoeshine acquires incredible superpowers, including the ability to fly and speak. After escaping from the megalomaniacal doctor and his henchman Cad (Warburton), Shoeshine is adopted by an ex-cop (Belushi). Armed with a fetching superhero costume, Underdog vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capitol City and, in particular, one beautiful spaniel name Polly Purebred. When a diabolical plot by Barsinister and Cad threatens to destroy the city, only Underdog can save the day!
Directed by Frederik Du Chau (Racing Stripes), Underdog is based on the 1960s cartoon canine of the same name.
