The premise of The Call of the Wild
Adapted from the novel by Jack London, it 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 Canadian 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.
As a live-action/animation hybrid, THE CALL OF THE WILD combined visual effects and animation technology in order to bring the animals in the film to life
Cast and Crew of The Call of the Wild
THE CALL OF THE WILD is directed by Chris Sanders and stars Harrison Ford, Omar Sy, Dan Stevens, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Cara Gee, Michael Horse, Jean Louisa Kelly, Colin Woodell, Adam Fergus, and Abraham Benrubi. Erwin Stoff, p.g.a. and James Mangold, p.g.a. are producing with Diana Pokorny, Ryan Stafford, and screenwriter Michael Green serving as executive producers.
How Graphic is THE CALL OF THE WILD?
According to a reviewer on Amazon,
The more brutal interludes either toned down or removed entirely. As the playful and sweet-spirited Buck is broken, beaten, and tamed by his kidnappers, the cruelty of the first beating is thankfully restrained, cleverly depicted through shadows on the wall of a cabin. And even then, the worst of the brutality is represented by impact scorings on the billy club used for the beatings.
