New trailer for Dreamworks' The Croods starring Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, and Emma Stone

Despite the lackluster box office of the currently in theaters RISE OF THE GUARDIANS, Dreamworks animation is pushing out another one early next year, this time in the form of THE CROODS, a caveman-meets-fantasy-world adventure set to the tune of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, and Emma Stone.  The first trailer hit a few months ago and now a much longer and engaging one is here to sell you into the theater.  The trailer gives a clearer picture as to the narrative and you can easily start building your cliches.  It does look like fun, however, and I'm hoping the filmmakers really capitalize on having Nicolas Cage on voice chores, squeezing in some "crazy Cage" moments, animation-style. 

I get dragged to all of these (lucky me) so I don't have a choice in the matter, but thankfully this looks like it will be good enough to not be like getting waterboarded for two hours and that's all right. 

How Crood (insert Jar Jar voice):

So, yeah, some more pretty animation from Dreamworks.  I thought RISE OF THE GUARDIANS was great and will be happy to count it amongst my Christmas season viewing stable each year, so the lackluster box office is a bit of a surprise to me.  If nothing else, it just goes to show that pretty animation doesn't guarantee buku bucks.  Still, you have my recommendation if that means anything.  My kid loved it and I have no doubt he'll love THE CROODS as well.  I draw the line at SMURFS 2, though. 

THE CROODS kick off their family adventure on March 22, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone else hoping that Marvel and Disney can pump out a cool animation movie? Show of hands?

Your mileage may vary

The character designs look amateur. No, amateur's do better designs and the voice acting sounds annoying.

The designs are from the same guy who did "Lilo & Stitch" if I'm not mistaken.

saw a preview for this before Rise of the Guardians

and it looks like it could be really damn good! Fantastic 3D was already present from the trailer too.

btw, Rise of the Guardians -- GREAT movie that can definitely be enjoyed by all ages. My favourite animated movie in years, besting even How to Train Your Dragon. And the best use of 3D I've probably EVER seen (just as good if not better than Hugo's tbh). Go see it people! Such a freakin shame it was not a massive hit... like really, this is one movie I would've LOVED to have seen sequels

Really... damn.

I don't know which was more entertaining, seeing nick cage as a cave man getting beat up by monkey or the nice bra and panties commercial that seem to come before it. Hmm Gotta love how those commercials use such nice close ups with good cameras.
