Early Man – New Trailer and Poster

// News

The new trailer for Aardman’s Early Man has made it’s appearance online. Nick Park’s upcoming Bronze Age epic sees Dug (voiced by Eddie Redmayne) and his hapless tribe take on the might of the Iron Age.

This new trailer debuts many new characters such as Goona (voiced by Maisie Williams) Dug’s tribe including chief Bobnar (Timothy Spall), energetic Asbo (Johnny Vegas), gentle giant Treebor (Richard Ayoade), northern tongued Eemak (Simon Greenall), matronly Magma (Selina Griffiths), injury prone Gravelle (Gina Yashere) and dim-witted Barry (Mark Williams). The cast also includes Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) leader of the imposing Bronze Age tribe that threatens to move Dug and the gang out of their beloved valley.

Also revealed today is the new poster.

Whats evident from the trailer is the football theme that has been present since the film was rumoured as “Early Man United” as Dug finds himself in the centre of a football stadium surrounded by knuckle dragging primitives. Some things never change.

Early Man arrives in UK cinemas January 26th 2018 (AD).
