'The Call of the Wild' & 'Downhill' Arriving Early on Digital Due to Pandemic

The Call of the Wild and Downhill are coming to digital early amid the global health crisis.

The films will both be available for digital purchase on Friday (March 27), Walt Disney Studios revealed on Thursday (March 26).

Both films hit theaters in February before closures began amid the pandemic. They will be available for $14.99 and $9.99, respectively.

The Call of the Wild stars Harrison Ford, and has an 89% rating on RottenTomatoes.

Here’s a plot summary: “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.”

Here’s a plot summary for Downhill: “Barely escaping an avalanche during a family ski vacation in the Alps, a married couple is thrown into disarray as they are forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell star in this biting comedy.”
