Why Did ‘The Call of the Wild’ Cost $125 Million? It’s a Mid-Budget Film that Caught Budget-itis (Column)

“The Call of the Wild” is a cozy, square, kind-of-synthetic, kind-of-touching canine adventure movie that a lot of critics were probably too harsh about, all because it has a CG dog. Don’t get me wrong; I’d have preferred a flesh-and-blood dog as well. But critics have developed a line-in-the-sand attitude about this technology, at least […]

‘The Call of the Wild’ Review: A Heartfelt Survival Story Buried in a Mush of Uncanny CGI

Most attempts to adapt the works of Jack London to the big screen have, more often than not, resulted in a neutered final product. Chris Sanders‘ live-action/computer-animated adaptation of The Call of the Wild falls firmly in this category. Gone is the savage romance of London’s short novel in all its untamed glory, instead, The Call of the Wild is a Disney-fied The Revenant — though it’s even less a survival film than it is a schmaltzy celebration of that bond between dog and human. At parts,...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Editor David Heinz on Creating Emotions for a CGI Dog

“The Call of the Wild” editor David Heinz has worked on “The Jungle Book” and “War for the Planet of the Apes,” but this movie starring Harrison Ford and an animated dog named Buck was different. “If you think about it, the lead of the movie is fully CGI and never speaks,” he said, also […]

‘The Call of the Wild’: Film Review

Dogs, in their rambunctious domesticated way, can lead us overly civilized humans a step or two closer to the natural world. So it’s only fitting that the best dog movies have saluted that unruly canine spirit without a lot of artificial flavoring. Hollywood’s classic dog tales, like “Old Yeller” (1957) or “Lassie Come Home” (1943), […]

‘The Call of the Wild’ Clip: Harrison Ford Befriends a Cartoon Dog

The Call of the Wild looks like a perfectly nice movie. Harrison Ford grew a beard and signed up to make a family film, which is surprising, since he seems like he’d rather…not do that sort of thing. But here he is, starring in Call of the Wild as John Thornton, who sets off on an adventure with a big dog named Buck. Buck is the real star of this movie, and he’s also completely digitally animated, which is just a little weird. Watch a new Call of the Wild clip below, where Harrison Ford meets B...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Trailer: Harrison Ford and a Dog Named Buck Take On Mother Nature

This year, Harrison Ford became a dog in the animated sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2.

The Call of the Wild is based on Jack London’s classic novel of the same name and follows a dog named Buck as he is uprooted from a spoiled life as a domestic dog in California and turned into a mail delivery sled dog in the Alaskan Yukon.

Dan Stevens Hears ‘The Call of the Wild’ with Harrison Ford

While fans are waiting for Disney and Lucasfilm to assemble all the moving pieces to get Indiana Jones 5 off the ground, Harrison Ford is heading off on another adventure in the Alaskan wilderness. Now, he’ll be joined by an actor who would actually make one hell of an Indiana Jones replacement. Dan Stevens has taken an eclectic line-up of roles from a lawyer on Downton Abbey to a goofy Sir Lancelot in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and from a deadly houseguest named “David” in The Gu...
