Next year, you’ll be able to see Nicolas Cage playing a caveman. And by “see” I mean “hear.” He’s the star of The Croods, a brand new 3D animated film from DreamWorks Animation. The film, directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco, is about a prehistoric family traversing a wild environment looking for a new cave to call home. In addition to Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman all lend their voices. The scheduled release date is March 22, 2013.
After the jump, check out a brand new image from the film that offers the best look at the family yet.
Here’s the new image from The Croods, which originated in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. Click on it for the hi-res version.
EW claims this is a “first look,” but I guess they didn’t see this image from Facebook six months ago.
Or this poster:
But anyway, it still looks great.
Here’s the official plot description:
The Croods is a 3D comedy adventure from DreamWorks Animation that takes us back to the beginning – to a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious – a time when Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today hasn’t evolved yet. At the heart of this comedically chaotic world is the Crood family, led by Grug (Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage), an over-protective father who, like all dads, is doing all he can to hold his family together as the world around them changes at a dramatic pace.
Together with his wife (Catherine Keener), kids (Emma Stone and Clark Duke) and ornery mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman) in tow, Grug guides his family through this spectacular environment, full of amazing creatures, to find a new cave to call home. Along the way, they encounter Guy (Ryan Reynolds), an imaginative and resourceful newcomer who takes risks and wholeheartedly embraces the promise of tomorrow. Audiences will relate to the hilarious family antics as Guy helps the Croods navigate their way into the bright future.
