Hi I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. I am AJ and I am the new owner around here. I will do my best to keep up with the great work that has already been put into this site as well as introduce some more things for you visitors. Thank you for stopping by keep your eyes out for some new things soon!
Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage are the trio of Hollywood A-listers who unite to voice the animated action in prehistoric family adventure The Croods.
Stone provides the voice of Eep, a teenage cave-girl with an over-protective father (Grug, voiced by Nicolas Cage) who hates change and invents the world’s first hug.
Ryan Reynolds is the light relief as a charismatic Neanderthal outsider called Guy, a character who hopes to lead the misfit family away from danger in their crumbling primal world.
Digital Spy caught up with the stars of the movie, alongside the movie’s directors Chris Sanders and Kirk Demicco, to discuss what the audience can expect from The Croods that hasn’t been seen before in animation.
“You’re going to see some visual wonderment,” admits Emma Stone.
“And you’re going to see a modern family in prehistoric times, which is a pretty great thing. And a lot of firsts.”
Cage added that the creatures in the film will be “exotic hybrids from a surrealist painting”.

“I think ‘The Croods’ has elements of all of all of my favourite movies, which is that it’s not just funny and it’s not just heartbreaking, it takes you on a journey throughout the entire film. I cried watching it (laughs), and I laughed, and I just went along for the ride and enjoyed myself the entire time. Throughout recording it you come in and you’re doing different things on different days, and then when you see how everything plays out in the end you realise that the messages – which there are many in the film – stick with you after the fact, but you’re not sitting there watching it thinking about the “themes”, you’re sitting there enjoying this family. I loved that. It’s different than any other animated movie that I’ve seen, in a sense that it feels so true to life the whole entire time – even though we are in the Stone Age (laughs).”
Stone voices Eep, the families rebellious teenager who’s trying to drag her family kicking and screaming into the future. Her nagging feeling that there might be more to life outside the family cave is confirmed when the Croods embark on their journey.
The “Gangster Squad” actress was surprised by the voice work, comparing the experience to ADR work on regular films.
“…I first went in, I’d done a lot of ADR work on my movies like ‘Easy A,’ movies with narration, so I thought it was going to be like that – I’ll just read my lines and play the character in that way. Then I realised, as time went on, that there was so much physicality involved – you really are playing an animated character. And that was the most ideal situation ever, because I come from improv and sketch comedy, I always want to go bigger and bigger and bigger. And with something like ‘The Croods,’ or a character like Eep, you can’t go “too big”. So being able to run and jump and climb, all of the physicality that comes with playing an animated character, I didn’t realise at the beginning that I would get to experience that. It really is just like playing another character, it’s not like ADR at all. It was such a blast.”
Eep appears to be real personal for Stone.
“Eep is the eldest daughter of the Croods and her personality is that she doesn’t want to be stuck in this cave any more, she really really wants to follow the sun. She loves the light, and her family hate the dark. And with Eep, I think she’s less scared of the dark than she is of not following the light. So she sees fire one night, not knowing what it is, thinking it’s a tiny sun, and she chases it. And ‘The Croods,’ it’s about living and not just surviving, that’s sort of Eep’s ethos, and I love that.”

Emma Stone may add another film to her ever-growing list of projects. The Gangster Squad starlet is in early talks to star in Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak, according to Variety.
Stone’s role and the plot have not yet been announced. Originally imagined by Del Toro and Matthew Robbins, the filmmaker and screenwriter Lucinda Coxon are currently rewriting the script for the haunted house horror film.
The Legendary Pictures film will begin shooting in February 2014. Emma Stone is expected to start filming The Amazing Spider Man 2 later this year.
