LA over the past few years has become my second home. I’m there quite a few times during the year previewing movies and writing reviews. Feb 11 – 13 is still pretty tight lipped because they are still firming up the guest list. We will for sure be watching THE CROODS and maybe get a sneak peek at upcoming DreamWorks Animation films TURBO and MR. PEABBODY & SHERMAN. The event will also include a tour of the campus and 3 very special behind the scenes presentations hosted by THE CROODS filmmakers:
