Following Rise of the Guardians as part of DreamWorks’ impressive 12-picture slate announced last month, The Croods is sure to set the box office alight as an instant animated classic.
“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.”
The awesome voice cast is led by the likes of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, and Ryan Reynolds, alongside Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, Cloris Leachman, with Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon, Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps) co-directing from their own script.
The Croods will be hitting the big screen in the UK and US on 22nd March, 2013, and if this first trailer is anything to go by, along with the studio’s past efforts, this should be a big success. For now, here’s the first trailer. Enjoy.
