Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days DVD Premiere

Author Jeff Kinney’s enjoyed enormous success with his Diary of a Wimpy Kid series both in print and on the big screen.

So, with Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days out now on DVD and Blu-ray Triple Play, the VUE cinema at London’s Westfield Shopping Centre hosted a DVD premiere for the film.
