Movies that put the "story" in prehistory!
For the first time since 2008's 10,000 B.C., a caveman movie was the number one movie at the box office this weekend, with DreamWorks Animation's The Croods raking in $44 million domestically and another $62 million in international ticket sales. The Croods takes place during the "Croodaceous Era," a time when modern animals had yet to fully evolve and a neanderthal girl like Eep (voiced by Emma Stone) could fall for a homo sapien boy like Guy (Ryan Reynolds).
Our prehistoric past has long been a source of entertainment on the big screen, inspiring movies of all different genres, from goofy comedies like Encino Man to gritty dramas like Quest for Fire. However they are depicted, cavemen are infinitely fascinating because, quite simply, they are us, but without cars, microwaves, cell phones or personal hygiene. Put on your wooly britches and bone jewelry and help us choose the movies that best depict our prehistoric ancestors.
