The Croods is a prehistoric 3D comedy adventure will take viewers back to the beginning of time. In a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious, the Crood family lives in the time when Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today hasn’t evolved yet. The Crood family is led by Grug (voice of Nicolas Cage), an overly-protective father who just wants to keep his family safe from all the cataclysmic changes that were happening in that era. He goes on a journey with his wife (Catherine Keener), kids (Emma Stone and Clark Duke), and mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman) to find a new cave to call home. Along the way, they meet Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who is a total opposite of the head of the family.
Meanwhile, Turbo tells the story of an ordinary garden snail who goes for his impossible dream to become the greatest racer in the world. Turbo, the ultimate underdog who is obsessed with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make this dream come true. Turbo’s all-star voice cast includes Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson.
