An octopus, Benedict Cumberbatch, and the Penguins of Madagascar

1 hour ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

What do you get when you mix an evil octopus, the internet’s boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch, and some spying penguins?  The Penguins of Madagascar.

A spin-off of the popular “Afro Circus”-singing franchise sees sidekicks Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico upgraded to leading bird status in their brand new adventure that sees them coming nose-to-nose- or beak-to-tentacle, as it were - with a dastardly octopus named Dave (John Malkovich) who’s bent on destroying the world.  But they’re not in this mission alone: the super-secret spy agency The North Wind has lent Agent Classified (Cumberbatch) to the cause.

The Penguins’ vocal cast includes all four of the original voice actors to provide their signature sounds while the film mixes in characters voiced by the likes of Peter Stormare, Andy Richter, and Ken Jeong.  Tom McGrath, the voice of Skipper, is one of the writers and original creators of the Madagascar series. »

18 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening tomorrow is Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith's The Penguins of Madagascar.  DreamWorks Animation's upcoming spinoff features the espionage-minded birds as they go off on a mission to bring down the nefarious octopus Dave (John Malkovich) even though they end up getting in the way of the professional spy organization the North Wind, which is led by the wolf "Classified" (Benedict Cumberbatch).  The movie also features the voices of Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter Stormare.  For more on the film, check out the trailer. To help promote the film, I recently got to talk with Benedict Cumberbatch (he plays Agent Classified) and Tom McGrath (he voices Skipper).  They talked about the relationship between Agent Classified and the Penguins, script changes during production, how recording their dialogue separately can be an advantage, and their favorite animated movies.  Hit the jump for what they had to say.

First Trailer For Strange Magic

23 November 2014 8:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A couple of weeks ago, the world at large learned of the existence of Strange Magic, an animated adventure based on an idea by George Lucas that had quietly been developing at his Lucasfilm company under the aegis of director Gary Rydstrom. With the movie arriving in the Us in a couple of months, the trailer has now appeared. Strange Magic is set in a world where the kingdoms of the magical and the mysterious are linked but never meet. Then an interloper crosses the border and all manner of chaos breaks out, mostly to do with a powerful potion that both sides wish control over. Loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the film is powered along by pop songs that apparently help tell the story, even if it all seems a little basic in terms of plot. The cast includes Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, »

'Strange Magic' trailer is full of snarky heroes, dudebro fairies, & musical numbers

21 November 2014 2:08 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marketed as “from the mind of George Lucas” comes an animated tale of what happens when two worlds collide. The barrier between the realms of Magic and Mystery have fallen, flinging goblins and fairies together…which can only mean war, duh. Played for laughs, “Strange Magic” might be less standard high fantasy trope of good vs. evil, and more a kid-friendly exploration about what happens when you make snap assumptions about a foreign “other.”  Oh, and it’s a musical? Maybe?  [Via Yahoo] Lucasfilm's "Strange Magic"  stars the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Stormare. It arrives in theaters across the country on January 23, 2015. »

Trailer For Lucasfilm's Strange Magic

21 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Considering George Lucas' name is attached, it is a surprise that Strange Magic was able to sneak under everybody's radar, but sneak it did, with the animated fairy tale hitting the big screen next year. Lucas provides the story, while Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic (who were the minds behind Rango) deliver some extremely pretty visuals for this magical tale, inspired by William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', that makes great use of popular songs from the last six decades. Check out the trailer below. Featuring the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Maya Rudolph, Peter Stormare, and Alfred Molina, Strange Magic reaches the U.S. on January 23rd, and Ireland and the U.K. on February 11th. »

Goblins, Elves And Fairies Dominate First Trailer For Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic

21 November 2014 12:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

George Lucas might have sold off Lucasfilm for a hefty $4 billion, but that doesn’t mean his creative output has ceased. Prior to unloading Lucasfilm onto Disney, the iconic filmmaker had begun work on an animated musical feature loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Touted to be a “madcap fairy tale,” Strange Magic was only very recently revealed to the world. With its release date coming up fast, the first trailer has now dropped, courtesy of Yahoo!

For his first full-length feature, Oscar-winning director Gary Rydstrom has assembled a starry cast to provide vocal talents for his crew of goblins, elves and fairies. Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, Peter Stormare, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull and Elijah Kelley all make ‘appearances’ in this first preview.

Taking a glance at this first footage, the Shrek-inspired vibe suggests it’s being aimed at a younger market. »

21 November 2014 10:03 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, so it's not the trailer for "Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens," but the below is something from the mind of George Lucas. Inspired by William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Strange Magic" is an animated tale that he wrote, and hey, it's not everyday you hear about something like that. Featuring the voices of Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Meredith Anne Bull, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein and Peter Stormare, the movie lines up a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and follows their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Now toss in some popular songs from the past six decades and you get....this. What ever happened to "I"m-gonna-make-experimental-movies-in-my-garage" George Lucas? Anyway, this opens on January 23, 2015. Watch below. »

First Strange Magic Trailer Reveals George Lucas’ New Animated Film; Plus New Images

21 November 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With the ever-present nature of the internet, it’s rare nowadays that a movie can somewhat blindside you with its existence.  But that’s just what happened recently when Disney announced not only that an animated feature from Lucasfilm called Strange Magic exists, but that it’s coming out in a little over two months.  The film is based on a story by George Lucas, and today the Strange Magic trailer was released, giving us our first look at some footage.  Though the animation is impressive in some respects, the whole thing feels really dated.  There’s a heavy reliance on widely known pop songs, a trend that was all the range during the time of Shrek—over a decade ago.  The fairy tale revolves around a world filled with goblins and elves and is inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream and it might yet drum up some interest »

George Lucas Is Making 'Strange Magic' in This New Trailer (Video)

21 November 2014 5:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What happens when you take a "Star Wars" mastermind, a classic Shakespearean romcom, and a whole lot of pop songs? The result is apparently "Strange Magic," an animated film coming out on January 23, written by George Lucas and inspired by "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The voice actors include Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, and Peter Stormare.

The first trailer for "Strange Magic" has dropped, and it looks crazy colorful and cute. The non-stop musical medleys are cause for pause, but maybe the cool-looking goblins and fairies and cute fuzzy animals will override fairies singing "Wild Thing" and talking about booties shaking and stuff like that. Given the premise of "Midsummer Night's Dream" and this dangerous potion everyone is talking about, we're anticipating some kooky love connections and summer solstice shenanigans.

Director Gary Rydstrom told Yahoo, "I remember when 'Labyrinth' came out and how exciting that was. »
