Commenter Bob, the most valuable investigative resource this blogger has found since Google, has done it again. Through an unusual bit of online investigating, Bob has discovered that not only is the first trailer for The Croods coming, it's COMING SOON!
Commenter Bob's first big break (in what I'm opting to call 'the case') came in a blog post from Croods visual development artist, Arthur Fong. While announcing the good news that he had been chosen as the cover artist for the upcoming The Art of The Croods book, Fong dropped this ten word tease regarding the teaser:
"Keep an eye out for the trailer coming in October."
Ah-ha! You see that? A clue. And the game was afoot...
Like a bloodhound who had just caught the scent, Commenter Bob was off, Googling god-knows-what in order to find THIS:
A list of upcoming film trailers approved by ratings bureau of Alberta, Canada.
Random, right? But there it is, listed right at the top. Dated September 24, rated G, and with a running time of 2 minutes and 15 seconds: The trailer for The Croods. This is what the impossibly attractive TV detectives refer to as "pretty damning evidence," and it's all due to the irrepressible instincts and investigations of one Commenter Bob.
The trailer IS nigh!
