The Croods trailer, will it be any good?

TheCroods.jpgThe Croods is the latest DreamWorks film which tells the story of a prehistoric family who head off on an epic journey when the cave they have been living in is destroyed and on the way, well you know what will happen all the old family stuff, the ripping them apart and bringing them back together through peril, etc.

I'm mixed about the trailer, it has its moments and there are a few where I was giggling and felt attracted to the characters, but I'm not completely sold just yet even with the voice talents of Nicholas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Catherine Keener.

Here's the blurb for The Croods which, warnings up front, is a 3D film and we all know what that can mean. Good news is that it's animated so the 3D isn't the cut and pull post production rubbish.

The Croods is a 3D comedy adventure that follows the world's first modern family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always been their home is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods are rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts as they discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures -- and their outlook is changed forever.

Here's the trailer through TrailerAddict for The Croods, I loved the shoe bit, I wonder if the rest of the film will live up to it?

Well that was the trailer. Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders co-wrote and co-directed. Micco previously wrote and directed Space Chimps and has written the Hong Kong Phooey screenplay while Sanders has written on a number of animated films from How to Train Your Dragon (Filmstalker review) to Lilo & Stitch, both of which he also co-directed, so there's a fair degree of experience there to deliver a good animated comedy with a nice message or two, but does it look that appealing from the trailer?
