Earlier this month, DreamWorks announced their impressive upcoming 12-picture slate that sees us through 2016, and following Rise of the Guardians this year, the first film we have to look forward to is The Croods.
With an awesome voice cast, led by Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, and Ryan Reynolds, the first poster has made its way online over at Yahoo Movies, giving a great new look at the prehistoric family.
“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.”
Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon, Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps) are co-directing from their own script, with Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, Cloris Leachman completing the voice cast.
The Croods will be released in the UK and US on 22nd March, 2013, and is sure to be another brilliant animated comedy for all ages, from the studio who’ve brought us Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek, and so many other instant classics. For now, here’s the first poster for the film, which you can click to enlarge.
