Discover The Secret Life of Pets on DVD this week

New on DVD this week is lively animation The Secret Life of Pets, which hilariously reveals what our pets get up to once we leave the house, and sees two dogs inadvertently embarking on a madcap adventure.

Also available from this week is Independence Day: Resurgence, a belated sci-fi sequel that sees the city-destroying aliens return after a twenty year absence to once again wreak havoc across the globe.

Terrier Max and the other animals in his block spend every day passing time, longing for their owners to return home. However, when Max’s beloved owner Katie brings rescue dog Duke back with her one day, Max feels betrayed. Forced to share his routine, Max tries to remain top dog but in his efforts he ends up getting himself and Duke lost. Totally out of his depth, Max relies on Duke’s street smarts to help them avoid capture by animal control officers. They end up in even hotter water when they become involved with an underground gang of abandoned pets on a mission for revenge against their former owners.

Twenty years after their first attempt, the aliens are back with an improved strategy for attack which takes no prisoners. Since the events of 1996, countries the world over have united and preparation for a repeat attack has been underway. However humankind’s defence, cobbled together from recovered extra-terrestrial technology abandoned after the last attempt to destroy Earth, pales in comparison with the aliens’ new advances in technology. This thrilling follow-up to the alien invasion blockbuster sees old faces from the original film together with a new generation keen to honour from their parents’ sacrifices and learn from their mistakes, united in their determination not to let the hostile invaders win.
