Based on Jack London’s legendary adventure, THE CALL OF THE WILD is a cinematic experience of a lifetime. Twentieth Century Fox 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 has embarked on an extraordinary coming-of-age journey that will lead him to ultimately discover his true place in the world and become his own master.
Employing cutting edge visual effects and animation technology in order to render the animals in the film as fully photorealistic and emotionally authentic characters, THE CALL OF THE WILD is a hybrid of live action and animated filmmaking. Harrison Ford, one of the screen’s all-time most popular and acclaimed leading men, heads a cast that includes Omar Sy (The Intouchables), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Bradley Whitford (Get Out). Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon) directs from a screenplay by Michael Green (Murder on the Orient Express). Produced by Erwin Stoff, p.g.a. (Unbroken) and James Mangold, p.g.a. (Ford v Ferrari) with Diana Pokorny (Downsizing) and Ryan Stafford (War for the Planet of the Apes) serving as executive producers.
Additional behind-the-scenes personnel include two-time Academy Award®-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan); production designer Stefan Dechant (Welcome to Marwen); editors William Hoy, A.C.E. (War for the Planet of the Apes) and David Heinz (American Folk), composer John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon) and costume designer Kate Hawley (Suicide Squad).
‘The Call of the Wild’ is now showing in Philippine cinemas from 20th Century Studios. Rated PG by the MTRCB.
