Blu-ray details for The Call of the Wild, Downhill & Wendy revealed!
20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures have unveiled the Blu-ray details for the Harrison Ford-led adventure film The Call of the Wild, the Will Ferrell and Julia Louis Dreyfus-starring dramedy Downhill, as well as the details for the digital release of Wendy, the new take on the classic J.M. Barrie tale Peter Pan.
Both films debuted in theaters in February. With cinemas currently impacted by closures due to the global health crisis, The Call Of The Wild and Downhill were made available ahead of schedule to purchase on digital platforms in the U.S. for $14.99 and $9.99 respectively.
The Call Of The Wild delighted audiences upon opening February 21, earning an 89% Verified Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Adapted from the novel by Jack London, it 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 visual effects and animation technology in order to bring the animals in the film to life.
