Article Summary

  • Sony Pictures reveals quirky Garfield promos ahead of its May release.
  • Chris Pratt discusses playing Garfield as an indoor cat on a rare outdoor quest.
  • Extended bit on cat method acting taps into Pratt’s comedic talents.
  • Amid a bustling May, Garfield’s subtle marketing may struggle for attention.

Sony Pictures shifted some of its release dates for the rest of 2024 heading into 2025, but how they are approaching next month is already kind of weird. May is a packed month; we have talked about this a bunch of times, and nearly every studio is throwing out a massive movie that is trying to capture audiences to try and kick off the summer blockbuster season the right way. Some of them feel more like sure things than others and Garfield seemed like it might be more of a sure thing. It’s an animated movie based on a well-known character, but of all of the films releasing next month, this might be the one people are talking about the least. That might have something to do with the marketing, which, at the moment, is a little weird. The first video, above, is star Chris Pratt talking about playing the character and the concept of an “indoor cat going on an outdoor adventure.” All right, that’s not too bad, but the below one is basically Pratt doing an extended bit about cat method acting. Whether or not you find that funny probably depends on how amusing you find Pratt overall.
