WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In prehistoric Earth, the Crood family – consisting of father Grug (Cage), daughter Eep (Stone), her boyfriend Guy (Reynolds), mother Ugga (Kenner), son Thunk (Duke), Gran (Leachman) and wild youngest daughter Sandy (Crawford) – work together to survive. Their dynamic is threatened, however, when they encounter a rival family called the Bettermans – made up of patriarch Phil (Dinklage), his wife Hope (Mann) and their teenage daughter Dawn (Tran) – who are more civilised and advanced than the Croods are…
