THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED ADVENTURE opens on December 14.
THE CROODS? Well, this is one project that I've been tracking at Dreamworks Animation since it's inception when it was being written by John Cleese (known then as CROOD AWAKENING). It looks like his writing credit has been taken off so I don't know how much of his ingenious humor has made its way into the 3D animation. Needless to say though, I was very happy to see it's first poster being released. The premise for the movie seems absolutely HILARIOUS!
Here's the storyline for THE CROODS:
The Croods is being written and directed by two-time Academy Award® nominee Chris Sanders (HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, LILO AND STITCH) and Kirk DeMicco (SPACE CHIMPS) and produced by Kristine Belson (HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON) and Jane Hartwell (SHREK). The Croods is a comedy adventure that takes us back to a previously undiscovered era in the history of our planet known as the Croodaceous, when nature was still a work-in-progress… full of never-before- seen creatures and landscapes. Audiences will relate to the hilarious family antics as an imaginative and resourceful newcomer helps the Croods navigate their way through the fantastic world beyond their cave.
THE CROODS open on March 22, 2013 and stars the voices of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman.
