Robbie Amell and Jennifer Garner watch on while the family’s new cat shows off his crazy antics in the trailer for the upcoming family film Nine Lives.
The movie stars Oscar winner Kevin Spacey as a daredevil billionaire and absentee dad who gets trapped inside the body of a cat during a terrible accident en route to his daughter’s birthday party. Adopted by his own family, he begins to experience what life is truly like for the family pet, and as a cat, Tom begins to see his family and his life through a new and unexpected perspective. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to life with an odd and stubborn cat, and his son (Amell), steps up in ways Tom never expected.
Jennifer plays the wife of Kevin‘s character while Cheryl Hines plays the ex-wife. Christopher Walken also appears in the film as the eccentric owner of a pet store!
The 34-year-old Arrow actor is teaming up with his 27-year-old cousin and The Flash actor Robbie to raise funds for the duo’s first ever feature film together.
Here’s the movie’s premise: “The film takes place in a world where four percent of the population are born with some type of supernatural ability. Instead of being billionaire superheroes, most ‘specials’ live in poverty and resort to crime, forcing the police to become more militarized.’”

The twosome, who became engaged in 2014, are planning a big wedding in Los Angeles and Robbie, 27, has spilled a few more details about their nuptials.
“[The wedding plans] are going great. My beautiful fiancée Italia is handling everything. I just say ‘yes, that sounds fantastic’,” he shared with Etalk.
He added, “I got in trouble for giving the date once in an interview like six months ago, so I avoid that at all costs. But we will be having an ice cream cake because I want a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake. And we’ll be having little burgers and pizza handed around at the end because we’re children.”
“I sent an invite to Victor Garber and my fiancée freaked out. She knows Victor, she’s hung out with him a bunch of times, but she still says ‘Victor Garber’s coming to our wedding?’ and I’m like, ‘yes, he’s a friend,’ and she can’t get past that,” Robbie shared.
“That’s a wrap on Arq! What an amazing group of people. Thank you and congratulations to everyone involved,” Robbie later captioned an Instagram photo. “I can’t wait for you guys to see this one!! @rachaelmaytaylor @netflix.”
The couple, who have been engaged since 2014, have chosen Robbie‘s cousin, Stephen‘s daughter, Mavi, as their flower girl!
“She’s just the most perfect little human,” Italia, 28, shared with ET.
She went on, revealing more details and why they’ve been waiting until this year: “The only reason we waited was because we wanted the date to fall on two special numbers. I’ve really just been putting everything off because I’m terrified of all of the decisions. I want everything.”
Robbie and Italia will say “I Do” later this year in Los Angeles.
“[It'll be] classic and elegant — I mean, I hope,” she added. “As classy and elegant as you can get when there are burgers or pizza [being served] — or maybe both.”
In the limited series, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully, which are a mixture of stand-alone investigative episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee.
FYI: Robbie is wearing a Zegna suit and Montblanc watch. Italia wore a NBD from Revolve dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
According to EW, the 27-year-old actor is set to reprise his role as Ronnie Raymond in an upcoming episode, but there’s a bit of a twist.
As you probably remember, Ronnie (aka Firestorm) sacrificed himself earlier this season to save Central City. This time around, we’ll see the Earth-Two version of Ronnie!
“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told the mag. “You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.”
Don’t forget – The Flash is back on Tuesday, January 19 @ 8PM on The CW.
