Once the Twilight star's comments went viral, PETA announced they were launching an investigation to see if any laws were broken.

A Dog's Purpose Crashes Hard At The Box Office As M. Night Shyamalan's Split Keeps The Top Spot!

What could have been a cute movie tugging at your heart strings has turned into a controversial little flick that just isn't connecting with viewers at the box office.

A Dog's Purpose, mired in controversy over the film's mistreatment of dogs on set while shooting, came in far behind expectations this weekend at the box office, debuting to just $18.3 million from a little more than 3,000 theaters across North America.

In its place, Split — a sleeper hit directed by M. Night Shyamalan — came in first for the second straight weekend, taking in $26.3 million over the last three days and rising up to a two-week domestic total of about $78 million.

From a financial standpoint, A Dog's Purpose cost just $22 million to make, so it's still on track to get its money back and the financials are good — but the social damage done to what should have been a very popular, family-friendly feature film, cannot be understated.

The producer speaks out!

The team behind A Dog's Purpose is definitely trying to save face ahead of its Friday release date.

As you've probably seen by now, footage showing an animal trainer shoving a visibly frightened German Shepherd into turbulent water on set has been made public by TMZ. In addition, PETA has since called for a boycott on the movie.

While Ellen DeGeneres has since spoken out with the film's star Dennis Quaid to defend the movie, so has the A Dog's Purpose's producer.

a dogs purpose cancels premiere

We doubt this will be a enough to subdue the wrath of PETA!

The production company for A Dog's Purpose, Amblin Entertainment, revealed on Thursday that they were canceling the flick's premiere and press junket amid those dog abuse accusations. We can't say we're surprised!

As you may recall, earlier this week, shocking footage leaked of a frightened German Shepherd being forced into a pool of water on the film's set. This upsetting incident obviously resulted in the famed animal rights organization to call for a boycott of the Dennis Quaid-starring family movie!

Since the company and distributor, Universal Pictures, are looking into the matter, it only seems right that they are hitting a pause button on the celebration and press junket for the film. In a recent statement, Amblin Entertainment explained:
