Disney’s 20th Century Fox has debuted the trailer for The Art of Racing in the Rain, which will open in theaters on August 9, 2019. Based on the bestselling novel by Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a heartfelt tale narrated by a witty and philosophical dog named Enzo.

Milo Ventimiglia stars as Denny Smith and Enzo is voiced by Kevin Costner. The additional cast members includes Amanda Seyfried, Gary Cole, Kathy Baker, Ryan Keira Armstrong and Martin Donovan.
The film is directed by Simon Curtis (Goodbye Christopher Robin, My Week with Marilyn) and produced by Neal H. Moritz, Patrick Dempsey, and Tania Landau. Donald J. Lee and Joannie Burstein are executive producers. The screenplay is by Mark Bomback (War for the Planet of the Apes, The Wolverine).
