Aardman Animations’ clash of ages comedy-adventure Early Man comes back out of the cave to debut on Digital (May 15) and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand (May 22) through Lionsgate. Audiences of all ages will be charmed by this cheerful claymation romp through prehistory from the creators of Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run and Shaun the Sheep Movie.

Directed by Nick Park, the voice cast also features Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) and Timothy Spall (Harry Potter films).
