2018 Movies: Early Man
Early Man is an upcoming stop-motion prehistoric comedy film directed by Nick Park (Academy Award-winner for Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit), about a caveman who who traces the world’s first game of football.
Set at the dawn of time, when the Earth was populated by strange prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths, the film tells the story of how brave caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Lord Nooth in a battle to beat them at their own game, resulting in becoming the very first game of European football.
Early Man, coming from the makers of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run (Aardman Animations), features the voices of Eddie Redmayne (who provides the lead voice for Dug), Tom Hiddleston (who provides the lead voice for the villain, Lord Nooth), Maisie Williams, Richard Ayoade, Timothy Spall, Johnny Vegas, and others.
The first trailer released for the film shows Dug and his tribe, that seem to be a hapless bunch, running away terrorized by a long-toothed bunny.
The film is set to be released on January 26, 2018 in the UK.
