Animated extravaganza Early Man is upon us, and the Mercury has three family tickets up for grabs.

The film hit cinemas on Friday, offering a charming journey back to a time when prehistoric creatures roamed the earth.

Bristol-based Aardman Animations, which created the internationally-renowned Wallace And Gromit franchise using stop-motion and plasticine models, is the team behind Early Man – guaranteeing world-class production quality and charming characters.

And the critics agree, with an overwhelming 92 per cent of reviews submitted to movie bible Rotten Tomatoes praising the work of Aardman chief Nick Park.

A caveman called Dug and his porky companion Hognob are the star attraction, as they battle to save the world as they know it.

Outmanned and in possession of vastly-inferior technology, the duo must unite their tribe to fight against the evil Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age city to save their home.

The film boasts an all-star list of British performers who lend their voices, with The Theory Of Everything star Eddie Redmayne voicing Dug, and heartthrob Tom Hiddleston, of The Avengers and War Horse, featuring too.

Timothy Spall, of Harry Potter and Auf Wiedersehen, Pet fame, and fan-favourite Game Of Thrones actress Maisie Williams also feature in this animated extravaganza.
