Nic Cage goes prehistoric in trailer for wild cartoon caveman pic

Crazy about cavemen? Here's a warm and fuzzy teaser for a new animated feature about life and love in the time of dinos.

Dreamworks Animation has high hopes for this prehistoric project about a furry family of curious Neanderthals venturing out of the shadows for the first time. Written and directed by Chris Sanders (How To Train Your Dragon, Lilo & Stitch) and Kirk DeMicco (Space Chimps), its Avatar-ish wonderland is lavishly detailed and ripe for extended exploration. Expect an avalanche of advertising on this one for the holidays.

Here's the official synopsis:

The Croods is a comedy adventure that takes us back to a previously undiscovered era in the history of our planet known as the Croodaceous, when nature was still a work-in-progress... full of never-before- seen creatures and landscapes. Audiences will relate to the hilarious family antics as an imaginative and resourceful newcomer helps the Croods navigate their way through the fantastic world beyond their cave.

Take a peek!

Wow! Almost makes you want to go slide on the leopard skins and grab a club.

The Croods also features the vocal talents of Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman and Clark Duke. It opens in 3D on March 22, 2013.
