The Croods Credits
Starring:Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, and Catherine Keener
The Croods 2 has hit some bumps over the last couple years, but until now, we were all under the impression it would still planning on being released in 2018. However, it was announced earlier tonight that the movie has been scrapped.
While researching this list, you wouldn’t believe how many incredibly forgettable animated movies we discovered that were released over the last decade – but we culled the list down to 15, and we’re betting that you won’t be able to guess the titles for most – if not all – of them. Do you accept the challenge? If so, read on!

Watch This Montage Of The Greatest Explosions In The History Of Movies
To be expected, the foreign films are the meatier bits, and the clear frontrunner to me is Hayao Miyazaki’s historical fantasy The Wind Rises - even though I haven’t seen it yet. It’s the last film for the legendary director, whose Spirited Away took the prize back in 2001.

19 Films Are Being Considered For 2013's Best Animated Feature Academy Award

The Croods Sequel Moving Forward At DreamWorks Animation
No one really wanted Scary Movie 5. Seven years ago audiences turned out to give Scary Movie 4, what easily should have been the last one, a decent send off with a very respectable $40 million opening and a domestic total of $90 million. But some folks don't know when to let it go and audiences showed just how last decade the franshise is.

Now Streaming: Netflix Instant Alternatives to G.I. Joe, Admission, And The Croods
Perhaps looking to follow up on their success with the Ice Age series of movies, Fox released the highly mediocre but also highly franchisable The Croods this weekend. The reception in theaters wasn't record breaking, but it was enough to give the movie a solid Spring Break number one debut, leaving star studded Olympus Has Fallen in the dust.

Weekend Box Office: Olympus Falls To The Croods As Admission Faces Rejection
Though there are pretty much no guarantees at the box office-- studios will pump hundreds of millions of dollars into films that seem like sure things and go on to be bombs-- it's hard to go wrong with an animated children's film around the season of spring break. DreamWorks Animation, which needed a hit after last fall's disappointing Rise of the Guardians , scored another this weekend with The Croods, which made $11.6 million on Friday and is on track for a $42 million weekend

The Croods And Surprisingly Big Olympus Has Fallen Dominate Friday Box Office
The Berlin International Film Festival came to a close on Saturday, after showcasing foreign films seem to be of a higher caliber than the popcorn munching moneymakers that American companies are producing and distributing. But right now we want to focus on a Berlin movie that finally stars Nicolas Cage as a caveman. Let us rejoice

The Croods New Clip Showcases Young Love And Bird Puppets
Because of their own previous experiences with fire, parents have no trouble warning their children of the element's dangers. Sure it's pretty and warm, but getting too close to it and handling it inappropriately can mean disaster. This knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation - which explains why our societies aren't just burning cinders.

The Croods Sneak Peek Has An Important Lesson About Fire Safety
It would seem that movie-goers don’t want our stars looking us in the eye anymore. We just want it quick, dirty, and, most importantly, from behind. Don’t believe me? Well, let’s do some quick mental time travel...
It's been a year of ups and downs for DreamWorks Animation. This summer saw the release of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, which received a warm reception from critics and took in an impressive $724 million worldwide. Then with the cold weather came Rise of the Guardians, which despite charming critics received the cold shoulder from audiences.
That’s Emma Stone voicing Eep, the teenaged daughter of a prehistoric family who’s tired of living under the thumb of her overprotective father (Nicolas Cage). The clan has been living in isolation for too long when, after their cave is damaged, their eyes are open to a vivid new world that’s populated by a mop-topped stranger (Ryan Reynolds) who’s predicting the end of the world.

New Croods Trailer Sends Caveman Family On Prehistoric Road Trip
For better or worse, the family road trip is an institution that is as old as time. So, it's fitting that The Croods, the latest animated adventure from DreamWorks, goes back to the land before time to tell the tale of a family of Neanderthals forced to leave the comfort of their cramped but safe cave behind and set forth to places unknown!
This November, some legendary characters will unite in Rise of the Guardians, and then, come March, DreamWorks' other upcoming animated film The Croods will make its way into theaters. A new poster for the animated comedy adventure has made its way online. It gives us a look at this cave-family as they prepare to embark on an adventure.

Rise Of The Guardians And The Croods Teased At DreamWorks Animation's Comic Con Panel
Nic Cage has played a lot of different characters in his career, but I’ve never really thought of him as the caveman type. Isn’t that why Brendan Fraser is allowed to keep working? You know, just so we have him in case we need a Cro-Magnon man
