Harrison Ford, CGI Dog Star in New Adaptation of 'Call of the Wild'

Harrison Ford, CGI Dog Star in New Adaptation of 'Call of the Wild'

The new adaptation of Jack London's 1903 adventure novel The Call of the Wild stars a hirsute Harrison Ford and a computer-generated doggo as they do stuff like pan for gold and savor the majesty of the Yukon Territories, circa 1899. It is a family film, rated PG for mild violence, peril and thematic elements (animal abuse?), and opens Friday in wide release.
