The movie stars Tom Hardy and was also James Gandolfini's final movie filmed. We know the rescued puppy plays a huge role in the film just from the reviews and summaries. With the heavy mob/crime tie-in though... we were a little nervous that something bad might happen to the puppy and we were just not so sure we could handle that.
That is where doesthedogdie.com comes in. Yes, it may sound a little morbid but it is actually a super useful, simple site. Just search the movie you are thinking about seeing and the site will tell you if something bad happens to the dog in the movie. They even give you a little context so you can prepare accordingly (tissues, please).
So we checked and Rocco lives happily ever after, so we think we are clear to go check it out!
Here is a short featurette on Rocco and a few more photos of him and his co-stars.
