We have another teaser trailer this week: the teaser trailer for Aardman Animations’ upcoming stop-motion film, Early Man.
According to Wikipedia, the film “tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob, who unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game, resulting in becoming the very first game of European football”. An interesting premise, to say the least, but like all Aardman films, I’m sure it’ll be very creative and funny.
The film features the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, and Johnny Vegas, amongst others. The film is set to be released to UK cinemas on January 26, 2018. No US release date has been announced yet.
What do you think of the teaser trailer and the film?

Well, if you were a fan of the 2015 stop-motion Aardman film, Shaun the Sheep Movie, you’ll be happy to know that a sequel has been announced! There’s no release date set, but the film is set to start pre-production January 2017! You can read my article on it here.
Are you excited for a Shaun the Sheep Movie 2? I actually am! I really enjoyed the first film and thought it was a wonderful tribute to the power of silence in film and animation!
