Meet Dug & Hognob in New Trailer for Nick Park’s ‘Early Man’

Stop-motion animated feature from the Oscar-winning creators of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep’ arrives in theaters on February 16th.

A brand-new poster and trailer for director Nick Park’s new prehistoric comedy adventure, Early Man, has arrived!

Presented by Summit Entertainment, StudioCanal, Aardman Animations and The British Film Institute, Early Man is the new prehistoric comedy adventure from the four-time Academy Award-winning director and Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne) and his best friend Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City to save their home. Shot in Aardman’s own distinctive style, Early Man will take audiences on an extraordinary journey into an exciting new world unleashing an unforgettable tribe of unique and funny new characters.

The new trailer introduces audiences to the peaceful existence Dug and Hognob enjoyed before Lord Nooth showed up, and teases a soccer match that pits the Stone Age technology of Dug’s tribe against the daunting might of the Bronze Age:

The all-star British voice cast is rounded out by Maisie Williams as Goona alongside Timothy Spall as chief Bobnar, Johnny Vegas as energetic Asbo, Richard Ayoade as gentle giant Treebor, Simon Greenall as northern tongued Eemak, Selina Griffiths as matronly Magma, Gina Yashere as injury prone Gravelle, and Mark Williams as dim-witted Barry.

Distributed in the U.S. by Lionsgate, Early Man arrives in theaters on February 16, 2018.
