The Croods (DreamWorks Animation)Nicolas Cage stars as the patriarch in a prehistoric family who go on a life altering journey in The Croods.

“I’m very excited about the movie, I think it’s about the best animated movie I’ve made,” said Cage. “I’m just thrilled with the way it looks, the attention to detail, the landscapes, the animals that are in the movie.  It’s just a spectacular effort on DreamWorks’ part.”

Cage also loves improvising, and during a recent interview he talked about how that worked its way into The Croods.  It’s a pretty interesting reflection, as he links his work in Leaving Las Vegas and The Croods in his response.  Listen to the clip below for the actor’s detailed take on improvisation.

The Croods opens nationwide Friday.
