Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Josh Gad, the actor of the voice of the titular dog was horrified by the footage on the Internet, and contacted Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures to figure out why this happened. The studios themselves also had no knowledge of the incident, and assumed special effects were used. Director Lasse Hallström also wasn't present during post-production, and has joined both studios in investigating. See more »

User Review



I just cannot believe Hallstom, the director of Hachi would harm in purpose any animal, especially a dog. He has made three films about dogs, he has made Hachi, the most lovely film about animal love. How can people forget it? How can people believe the first video they see? Haven't they realized yet that pictures not always tell the truth? Have you forgotten the story of the cormorant drown into petroleum that was supposed to be in the Persian Golf but turned out to be in northern Spain? How can some be so credulous? Im am afraid that the film won't get what it deserves because of people thinking too fast. I'll go and see it just the same, because I believe that Hallstorm deserves more than one chance more.
