If you’ve got some secret agent stuff that needs doing, you could hire James Bond. But he has to put on a tux for formal work. Why not hire a crew that is always wearing tuxes? Penguins of Madagascar opens up the hidden backstory of the birds from the Madagascar films. They’re masters of disguise and espionage, these guys (well, birds) and willing to leap into danger at a moment’s notice. In this new Penguins of Madagascar trailer we see some more of their antics, and also get to hear a bit more of Benedict Cumberbatch, as the voice of a classy spy outfit. Read More »

There’s a go-to tactic for animated properties that want to change things up a bit: put the characters in the real world. That’s the trick SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out of Water 3D gets up to, as a real-world pirate (well, real-world in the movie’s story, anyway) gets his hands on a book that can turn any story into truth. And that leads the residents of Bikini Bottom into a new existence as CG-animated, 3D characters. They look pretty good, actually!
This trailer is the same one that was shown at Comic Con last week, though it is missing a bit of opening teaser text that parodied The Avengers. Otherwise, you’ll get the idea. Read More »
What happens when you combine the stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, add a few Oscar-winners, some Tony-winning music and sprinkle a little Disney on top? You get Rob Marshall‘s adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical, Into the Woods.
The film opens Christmas Day. Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and Johnny Depp are among the cast in the original story of a baker and his wife who wish to have a family of their own. That wish is granted by an evil witch. To break her spell, all of the aforementioned fairy tales will become part of the story.
