The prehistoric-set animated movie is the first of two blockbusters the animation house are bringing us this year (the second is Turbo), and we’ve seen plenty to suggest that it’s going to be a lot of fun.
With the film’s release just over two weeks away, the studio have been teasing us with a series of new ‘Prehistoric Fails’ clips. And we’ve got the latest to share with you exclusively – ‘Brawn vs. Brain’ – giving us a look at Nicolas Cage’s Grug voting for strength over intelligence.
“Surviving in a volcanic world is tough enough, but caveman Grug gets a rude awakening when an earthquake forces him to leave behind the only world he knows. With his family in tow, he ventures out into the volatile world in search of a new home. The situation becomes even more complicated when Grug’s family–but in particular his eldest daughter–become smitten with a nomad they encounter on their dangerous journey. This quirky, imaginative stranger’s search for ‘tomorrow’ is at odds with Grug’s reliance on the traditions of yesterday.”
Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone complete The Croods’ leading voice cast alongside Cage, with the trio joined by Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman.
Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon, Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps) are both behind the camera here, directing from a script they also wrote together.
The Croods will be released in 3D on 22nd March in the UK and US. The odds are very good that this is a must-see animated movie of the year, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see this earning a nomination for Best Animated Feature come next year’s Oscar season. For now, here’s the latest prehistoric fail. Enjoy.
