Strays Release Date: Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx Join Forces in the Hilarious Comedy Movie?
Get ready, because, in February 2023, Netflix will put out a new scary movie called The Strays. We’ve created a guide with all the important details about the Netflix original movie that we’re so excited to share with you.
Here’s everything else to know about The Strays below!
Release Date of Strays Movie
Strays will come out in theatres on June 9, 2023, which is in the middle of summer and a good time to see a movie. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the seventh movie in Paramount’s very successful franchise, will be playing at the same time as the new movie.
When a big studio schedules a comedy for the summer, it usually means they are confident in the movie, and it looks like that is the case with Strays and Universal. In a recent interview with Steve Weintraub of Collider, director Josh Greenbaum talked about the film’s test screenings.
“So yeah, our very first preview was a joy for me and the studio and everyone watching because it tested very, very well, particularly for a first screening, but also just in our climactic kind of moment, we had full applause and full hooting and hollering. I was like, “Oh, this is working.” So really exciting and positive, and I can only assume, that will continue. But it was really fun and it’s been a while since we did those previews.”
Is There a Trailer For Strays Movie?
Universal Pictures released the official trailer for Strays on February 8, 2023. While referencing popular comedies such as 21 Jump Street and Ted, the extremely R-Rated trailer features a motley crew of dogs using f-bombs, drinking alcohol, humping garden gnomes, and consuming mushrooms. There is also a sock puppet involved because sock puppets can never go wrong.
What Is the Plot of Strays?
Strays is about a Border Terrier named Reggie who loves his owner Doug, even though Doug is a drunk, abusive, heartless lowlife who doesn’t want anything to do with the sweet little dog. When Reggie is left on the streets of the city, he joins forces with a group of stray dogs to get back at Doug by biting off his penis.
According to Universal’s official synopsis:
They say a dog is a man’s best friend, but what if the man is a total dirtbag? In that case, it might be time for some sweet revenge, doggy style. When Reggie (Will Ferrell), a naïve, relentlessly optimistic Border Terrier, is abandoned on the mean city streets by his lowlife owner, Doug (Will Forte; The Last Man on Earth, Nebraska), Reggie is certain that his beloved owner would never leave him on purpose.
But once Reggie falls in with a fast-talking, foul-mouthed Boston Terrier named Bug (Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx), a stray who loves his freedom and believes that owners are for suckers, Reggie finally realizes he was in a toxic relationship and begins to see Doug for the heartless sleazeball that he is.
Determined to seek revenge, Reggie, Bug and Bug’s pals—Maggie (Isla Fisher; Now You See Me, Wedding Crashers), a smart Australian Shepherd who has been sidelined by her owner’s new puppy, and Hunter (Randall Park; Always Be My Maybe, Aquaman), an anxious Great Dane who’s stressed out by his work as an emotional support animal—together hatch a plan and embark on an epic adventure to help Reggie find his way home … and make Doug pay by biting off the appendage he loves the most.
(Hint: It’s not his foot). A subversion of the dog movies we know and love, Strays, directed by Josh Greenbaum (Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar) and written by Dan Perrault (Players, American Vandal), is a hilarious, R-rated, live-action comedy about the complications of love, the importance of great friendships, and the unexpected virtues of couch humping.
Who Will Star in Strays Movie?
Strays has a great cast, and Will Ferrell and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, who are both known for being funny, are at the top of the list. Ferrell became famous on the big screen with hit comedies like Elf, the Anchorman movies, Old School, and Step Brothers.
Most recently, he was in the musical Christmas comedy film Spirited with Ryan Reynolds. Ferrell won’t just be in one big movie this summer. He will also be in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, which has an all-star cast. Reggie, the main dog in the movie, will be voiced by Will Ferrell.
After getting his start on In Living Color, Jamie Foxx has become one of the biggest and most talented names in Hollywood.
He has starred in movies of all kinds, including Ray, Collateral, Django Unchained, Baby Driver, the Horrible Bosses movies, Dreamgirls, and he was the supervillain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home. He will also be in the sci-fi comedy They Cloned Tyrone, which will come out this summer. Foxx will play Bug, a Boston Terrier who takes Reggie under his wing in the movie Strays.
Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth), who will play Doug, one of the few human characters, Randall Park (WandaVision), who will play Hunter, an anxious Great Dane who wears a cone, and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers), who will play Maggie, an Australian Shepard, round out the main cast of Strays.
Who are the Makers of Strays Movie?
Josh Greenbaum is the director of the film Strays. By directing documentaries such as The Short Game, Becoming Bond, and Too Funny to Fail: The Life & Death of the Dana Carvey Show, Greenbaum rose to prominence. Later, he directed his first feature film, the cult comedy Barb & Star go to Vista del Mar, starring Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo, and Jamie Dornan.
Dan Perrault, who co-created the short-lived but beloved Netflix and Paramount+ mockumentary series American Vandal and Players, wrote the film’s screenplay and also serves as the film’s producer.
In addition to Aditya Sood (Cocaine Bear), Erik Feig (Cha Cha Real Smooth), and Louis Leterrier, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller, known for the Jump Street films, The Lego Movie, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, serve as producers on the film (Fast X).
Ratings to Strays Movie
As we’ve already said, and as you can probably tell from the trailer, Strays is rated R, so if you want to see it in a theatre, it might be best to leave the little ones at home. The movie is rated R because it has a lot of bad languages, crude and sexual content, and drug use. This can be seen on the movie’s official poster and the thumbnail for its trailer.
