Family film `The Croods` to release in India April 19

Family film `The Croods` to release in India April 19 New Delhi: ‘The Croods’, latest 3D adventure offering from Fox and DreamWorks, will hit Indian screens April 19. The movie follows the world`s first modern family through the journey of a lifetime.

‘The Croods’ has characters voiced by the likes of Nicolas Cage (father `Grug`), Emma Stone (daughter `Eep`) and Ryan Reynolds (`Guy`).

It starts with the family`s `first` trip, after their home, a cave, is destroyed. The story then follows the discoveries of an incredible new world by the Croods with fantastic creatures, and a future beyond what they imagined.

The discoveries provide many `firsts` in their life - first family trip, first fire and shoes, first pet, first joke, first cell (shell) phone, and even the first mid-life crisis.

Family is a core factor in the movie, just as it is in the Indian culture.

"The physical comedy was always there in the film`s development. But we came to realise that once you strip away all the stuff in our modern lives - jobs, cars, responsibilities - you drill down to what really matters, and that`s family and friends," Chris Sanders, writer-director of the movie, said in a statement.
