Early Man is a 2018 British stop motion animated sports comedy movie directed by Nick Park, the creator of Wallace & Gromit, written by Mark Burton and James Higginson, and starring the voices of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams and Timothy Spall. The movie follows a tribe of primitive Stone Age valley dwellers, who have to defend their land from bronze-using invaders in a football match. The movie premiered on 20 January 2018 at the BFI Southbank cinema.

Released theatrically on 26 January 2018, the movie received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the animation, voice acting and humour, although some deemed it inferior to previous Aardman works. The movie underperformed at the box office, only grossing $54 million against a budget of $50 million.
