The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission announced that the new Harrison Ford movie, based on the legendary novel Call of the Wild by Jack London, was filmed partly in NorCal. The film commission said that filming locations in Northern California included the Smith River and Wilson Creek Beach.
Call of the Wild is expected to hit theaters in February 2020. Watch the video above to see the newly released trailer.
Here is a synopsis of the movie:
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.
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.
