Harrison Ford in ‘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. Next year, he’s teaming up with a dog for an adventure that will see them battling the elements during the middle of the Gold Rush in the 1890s. 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...
