Early Man (PG)
British animation maestros Aardman Studios, makers of Wallace And Gromit and Chicken Run, roll back the clock to the dawn of time for a laugh-out-loud tale of prehistoric culture clash. Early Man follows plucky caveman Dug and his best friend, Hognob, who live a modest but happy Stone Age life with their tribe. When the mighty Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age armies turn up to take over their beloved valley, the keen but clumsy Dug sets out to rally his clan of misfits and beat the bad guys at their own game. Unleashing a memorable set of new characters and a caveful of Stone Age gags, Early Man fuses friendship, comedy and adventure in a way that only Aardman can.
