The Call of The Wild is Coming to Theaters February 21st + Activities, Printables and More!

 The Call of The Wild is Coming to Theaters February 21st +  Activities, Printables and More!

This is a sponsored post for Review Wire Media on behalf of Twentieth Century Studios. 

Adapted from the beloved literary classic, 20th Century Studios’ “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 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” employs 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” stars Harrison Ford, Omar Sy, Dan Stevens, Karen Gillan and Bradley Whitford. Directed by Chris Sanders from a screenplay by Michael Green, based on the novel by Jack London, the film was produced by Erwin Stoff, p.g.a. and James Mangold, p.g.a., with Diana Pokorny and Ryan Stafford serving as executive producers. Rated PG. Opens in theaters February 21.

Here is a “featurette” video to give you a sneak peek.
