DreamWorks’ latest animation The Croods has a new trailer this week, introducing us to a brilliant voice cast led by the likes of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman.
The film is set in “a previously undiscovered era in the history of our planet” and follows the world’s very first pre-historic family as they go on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world.
We don’t see much of the plot in the trailer, but this is the first time that DreamWorks have centred on a family of cavemen, and the animation of both their setting and appearance looks stunning in the new trailer.
Reynolds and Stone especially sound fantastic, but does Nic Cage really work as a voice actor? Aside from the sound of him putting me off a little, the film looks like it’s going to be pretty spectacular.
Co-directed by Chris Sanders (How to Train Your Dragon) and Kirk De Micco (Space Chimps), The Croods will be hitting the big screen on 22nd March, 2013.
