Animated filmmaker Nick Park, a four time Oscar winner whose credits include Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, heads to the Stone Age with his latest feature Early Man.
The narrative centers on Dug (Eddie Redmayne), a caveman who’s part of a group of rabbit hunters. When a malevolent ruler (Tom Hiddleston) invades their environment with his Bronze Age technology, it’s time for a littler battle of the “Ages.” Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams and Timothy Spall co-star in the feature. The Claymation aesthetic from Park and the creators over at Aardman Animations definitely stands out in the world of animation. Early Man is also Park’s first feature film directing effort since 2005’s The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Early Man, co-starring Richard Ayoade and Selina Griffiths, hits theaters February 16, 2018.
