early man trailer

In an era where we’re inundated with mostly identical CG animation, it’s always a breath of fresh air when Nick Park arrives back on the scene. The creator of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run, Park’s distinct stop-motion style of animation is always something we welcome with open arms.

This is the third trailer we’ve seen for Early Man, but it’s a treat for the eyes once more. Not just in the painstaking detail given to each character and piece of animation, but for the new gags that are scattered throughout the latest international trailer.

Early Man trailer

The folks at the British animation studio Aardman are responsible for beloved movies like Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace and Gromit, and while CG has largely won out as the dominant form of animation for most major movies, Aardman’s sticking with claymation for a decidedly old school look. That’s especially appropriate for their new film Early Man, which is about as old school as you can get: it’s the story of cavemen butting heads with new technology.

Check out a brand new Early Man trailer below.

“This isn’t a hospital, it’s a haunted house!”

Directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), New Mutants boasts an all-star cast of talented rising actors including Game of Thrones’ Maisie WilliamsThe Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy, and Stranger Things‘ Charlie Heaton. But it won’t be your standard superhero flick of the month — Boone promises a claustrophic, horror-inspired spin-off film centered around some of the lesser known X-Men characters. Hey, going different worked for Deadpool.

While hand-drawn animation seems to be all but extinct in the feature film business, claymation will make one last gasp for relevancy with a new film by the talented creators and animation studio behind the still-great Wallace and Gromit.

Lo and behold Early Man, the stop-motion animated film from Aardman Studios about a caveman who discovers that civilization has quickly advanced all around him — immediately making him and his tribe endangered. Wow, it sounds like they’re sending some kind of message here…

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

new mutants horror movie

Every time a comic book movie director claims that his movie will be “very different” from other superhero movies, an angel loses its wings and gains heat vision.

But New Mutants director Josh Boone swears that his X-Men spin-off will forego all those costumes and supervillains, and go “full-fledged horror movie” instead — because horror is the new trend now. To be fair, the source material for New Mutants, the 1984 Marvel Comics storyline “The Demon Bear Saga,” lends itself to the horror genre, and we are already greatly anticipating the spinoff film anyway with the casting of Game of ThronesMaisie Williams and Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy. But Boone wants you to know that New Mutants isn’t like other X-Men films.

new mutants cast

For the first time in a long time, the X-Men movies are starting to get us excited again. Even if you ignore the brilliant Legion on FX (and you most certainly should not), Logan and Deadpool suggest a wild and exciting path ahead for the mutant superheroes. Hopefully, the upcoming New Mutants movie continues the trend.

It certainly helps that two very talented young women have officially joined the cast: Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams and Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy have signed up for Josh Boone’s movie, which is due out next year.

Aardman Animations may have entered the crowded CG animation world with films like Flushed Away and Arthur Christmas, but the creators of Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace and Gromit will forever be known for their stop-motion movies. Their latest project, Early Man, looks to be very much in line with their most popular work, taking their instantly identifiable style and applying it to a tribe of none-too-sharp prehistoric people. The film doesn’t hit theaters until next year, but the first trailer has arrived to announce the film’s existence to the world.

Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane in New Mutants

Production on the X-Men spin-off New Mutants is rumored to begin in April or May this year with The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone at the helm. 20th Century Fox hasn’t made any official announcement about the project, but there have been plenty of details that have surfaced. Now one of those details seems to have been confirmed by Josh Boone himself.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has been linked to the cast of New Mutants, though no word on her involvement has been confirmed by anyone. Josh Boone may have just done that though by sharing a piece of art featuring the actress as Rahne Sinclair, the mutant who comes to be known as Wolfsbane, due to the fact that she can transform into a wolf.

game of thrones season 7

While Game of Thrones season 6 was home to its fair share of horror and misery, it was downright merciful compared to previous seasons, allowing many of the main characters to actually get on the path leading toward their future goals (instead of, you know, pushing them off the path with a bloody bludgeon comprised of war and intrigue). In a new interview, series star Maisie Williams, who plays the increasingly dangerous and weary Arya Stark, pretty much says we can expect the same thing from season 7 – we’ll see some victories, but also some crushing defeats.
