Harrison Ford is no stranger to starring opposite a furry friend. The Hollywood legend stars in THE CALL OF THE WILD, an adaptation of the Jack London book by the same name. A new trailer and poster have been released.
Ford is not one for sentimental roles, so THE CALL OF THE WILD is something different for the actor. He's been stretching his chops lately with films targeted towards young children and families. He voiced the character of Rooster in THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS in 2019, and now he's starring opposite a dog, albeit a fake one.
In the movie's description, THE CALL OF THE WILD is referred to as a "live-action/animation hybrid." There are some scenes of the dog which definitely look like CGI. It says they used "cutting edge visual effects and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic--and emotionally authentic--characters." Unfortunately Buck the dog often times looks computer generated so hopefully they're still perfecting that look.
But who isn't a sucker for cute dogs and Harrison Ford. THE CALL OF THE WILD hits theaters February 21st.
Adapted from the beloved literary classic, THE CALL OF THE WILD vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team--and later its leader--Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.
THE CALL OF THE WILD stars Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford and Colin Woodell.
