From the creators of "Wallace and Gromit" and "Chicken Run," comes a new British animated adventure film that takes a whimsical look at prehistoric man.
Check out the first teaser trailer for Aardman's latest stop-motion offering "Early Man," featuring the voice of Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as a bumbling caveman named Dug who is trying to survive a savage Earth with the help of his trusty sidekick, a prehistoric warthog called Hognob.
Directed by four-time Oscar-winning animator Nick Park (The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, A Close Shave), "Early Man" will also feature the voices of Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams, British comedian/filmmaker Richard Ayoade, veteran character actor Timothy Spall, and Tom Hiddleston as the evil Lord Nooth.
"Early Man" is currently scheduled to hit theaters early next year, sometime in January 2018.
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug (voiced by Eddie Redmayne), along with sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. It also marks Nick Park's first feature film since Academy-Award winning WALLACE AND GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT. Supported by accomplished screenwriter Mark Burton this new film unleashes an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.
