The Croods is the first of two animated blockbusters from them this year – the second is the equally anticipated Turbo – and everything we’ve seen so far suggests it’s going to be a really big hit with audiences in a few weeks’ time.
With its release date fast approaching, the studio have released a great new trailer to give us another look at this prehistoric-set comedy. And since the last trailer we saw was way back in December, a new look at The Croods is definitely more than welcome.
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, Emma Stone, and Nicolas Cage take the lead of a pretty awesome voice cast, alongside Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman.
Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon, Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps) are behind the camera, co-directing from a script they wrote together.
The Croods will be released in 3D on 22nd March in the UK and US, so you’ve only got another eleven days to wait before this one hits. For now, here’s the latest (and, most likely, final) trailer to help make the wait a little easier. Enjoy.
