New Trailer & Poster Arrive for Nick Park's 'Early Man'

New Trailer & Poster Arrive for Nick Park's 'Early Man'”

The clay-concocted animated comedy of English director Nick Park have charmed viewers across the globe for decades, going back to the 1990s heyday of the Wallace & Gromit TV and film franchise, to 2000 cinematic hit Chicken Run, to more recent work with Shaun the Sheep.

Set during the transition period between the Stone Age and the Bronze Age, Early Man follows the adventures of Dug the Caveman (Fantastic Beasts' Eddie Redmayne) as his tribe of hapless cavemen is swept up in the militaristic, technological advancements of Bronze-wielding invaders.

The all-star British voice cast is rounded out by Maisie Williams as Goona alongside Timothy Spall as chief Bobnar, Johnny Vegas as energetic Asbo, Richard Ayoade as gentle giant Treebor, Simon Greenall as northern tongued Eemak, Selina Griffiths as matronly Magma, Gina Yashere as injury prone Gravelle, and Mark Williams as dim-witted Barry.

You can take the boy out of the Stone Age, but it's much harder to take the Stone Age out of the boy. 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. "We spent a long time talking about it and writing". And then writing and storyboarding takes ages. You're trying to edit the movie before you've made it, because we don't have that freedom you have in live action where you can shoot loads of stuff and edit after. "We can't afford to not use shots". Park has won four Oscars and five BAFTAs, and he's been working at Aardman for more than 30 years; he's one of the world's preeminent claymation filmmakers, and Early Man looks like a delightful continuation of that long tradition. "I already liked his roles, but I saw him mimicking other celebrities on the show and thought he would be a good guy to try out with a French accent".

Early Man is set for release on January 26th in the United Kingdom and on February 16th in the US.
