The Call of the Wild is a live-action adventure film based on 1903’s novel by Jack London with the same name. It is also a remake and modern version of Twentieth Century Pictures’ 1935 film of the same name. Directed by Chris Sanders, it stars Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Karen Gillan, Omar Sy, and Bradley Whitford. The trailer of the film was recently released. Many appreciated it, while some found the CGI dog to be a let-down.
Why did the filmmakers make this dog full CGI in nearly every shot? 80% of the stuff the dog is doing could be shot with a real dog. U don't need to CGI a simple reaction shot of a dog, the audience will emote their emotion onto him. Boo. #TheCallOfTheWild https://t.co/1NJI4nErHl— Tina (@KarlaKan88) November 20, 2019
#thecallofthewild All these people excited about this movie have never read the book (or have forgotten the story)...animal cruelty, animal fights to the death, and other tragedies. It's no wonder the dog is CGI.— Renee George (@reneegeorge2008) November 21, 2019
The trailer looks fun, but I'll pass.
I don`t understand, if you replace a real dog in a feature action movie with a CG dog, why you need to animate it as a cartoony dog? It breaks all the realism of the movie. Why not imitate a real dog? Without all those so openly cartoon looks and moves? #theCalloftheWild— Hope Mark (@HopeMark72) November 20, 2019
