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:
Chris Sanders / Director

ABOUT THE CROODS
Directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco
Featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Cloris Leachman and Clark Duke,
The Croods is a 3D comedy adventure that follows the world’s first modern family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always been their home is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods are rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts as they discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.
