Early Man

With the distinctive visuals and slapstick humour for which Bristol-based animators Aardman are renowned, a crowd-pleasing film is crafted by UK director Nick Park and British screenwriter Mark Burton. With a first-rate voice cast including Brits Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall and Miriam Margoyles, the film was co-produced by the UK's BFI, Aardman Animations, BFI Film Fund and Creative Skillset.





Fearless caveman Dug (Eddie Redmayne), his sidekick Hognob (Nick Park) and the rest of their tribe face a dangerous threat to their uncomplicated existence. After discovering that Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) plans to take over their land and transform it into a giant mine, Dug and his tribe try to defeat the enemy via a prehistoric game of football.
