Marketing is everything for movies.
It can sway someone into watching it or make them disregard it. It’s all about how the product is sold to the public, the package that is promised.
When it comes to the Harrison Ford cinematic vehicle, “The Call of the Wild,” there’s a mix-up between what was promised and what was delivered.
Overall, it’s a manipulative, watered down tearjerker about the hard journey of a dog through life and the animal’s connection with human beings-but the trailer didn’t exactly present that. The preview told us it was all about Ford and the dog, Buck. In reality, that is only a part of the story.
That and the film is quite forgettable, even with a quality performance from Ford. You could save that one for Blu Ray.
Located elsewhere in the segment on The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon with Frank O. Pinion is an in-depth discussion about the new Amazon series, “Hunters.” Frank and Trevor “Limey” Phillips go head to head over the United States of America’s war history that expanded quite deeply into the hour.
Before it was all said and done, I covered another film and offered a preview of the new Liam Neeson film, “Ordinary Love.”
It’s all located right here.
