The Call of the Wild / 2020

16 Mar


Get Up Dogs / Buddy Tabor

MFW Review:

I couldn’t get past the fact that I could see that this wasn’t a real dog.
This kinda ruined my enjoyment / immersion.
And that they also took liberties with the story – the book.
4 out of 10.

Locations:

Yukon, Canada (Klondike Gold Rush)
British Columbia, Canada
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Santa Clarita, California, USA

More Box Office Blunders:

Wikipedia says: “As of March 15, 2020, The Call of the Wild has grossed $62.1 million in the United States and Canada, and $45.2 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $107.3 million. Due to its high production and marketing costs, the film will need to gross $250–275 million in order to break-even; various publications estimate it will lose the studio between $50–100 million.”

MFW: This isn’t the first time that Disney has made this identical marketing blunder. Solo: a Star Wars Movie also took a huge loss of millions of dollars from over marketing. (Ironically, Harrison Ford was the original Han Solo.)
