Still shot from the movie: Bolt.


In this animated adventure, Bolt (voice of John Travolta) is a dog with super powers --or so he thinks. Really he is just an actor in a TV show. This painful truth becomes a problem when the pup accidentally gets separated from his co-star and owner Penny (voice of Miley Cyrus), and has to find his way home with only the help of a stray cat (voice of Susie Essman) and a ball-imprisoned hamster (voice of Mark Walton).
