Mumbai: Singapore and 3DX Film and Entertainment Technology Festival will play host to the first screening of Call of the Wild in 3D, directed by Richard Gabai and starring Christopher Lloyd. The film is a modern-day story incorporating elements of Jack London’s classic short novel. Lloyd and Gabai will attend the film’s premiere at the 3DX Festival, November 19th to 23rd, in Singapore.
Call of the Wild follows the trail of Grandpa Bill (Christopher Lloyd) and his granddaughter Ryann (Ariel Gade), as a tale of friendship, adventure and faith unfolds. Ryann befriends a wild hybrid wolf/dog "Buck", going to great lengths to protect it, discovering strengths she didn’t know she had. Gabai’s new movie for 2008 promises to be a heart-warming journey for the entire family.
"The 3DX Film Festival is the global platform for the new genre of 3D movies and we’re thrilled to be the first to showcase Call of the Wild in 3D to the audience. It’s also very exciting that Christopher Lloyd and Richard Gabai are coming to the festival, adding to what promises to be a star-filled event" said Jim Chabin, Executive Producer, 3DX Festival.
Call of the Wild is one of several exclusive screenings to be held at the 3DX Festival. Bolt, the new animated feature film from Disney, will be honored as the opening night film on Wednesday, November 19th. U2 3D in concert will also be screened as a regional premiere.
