New Penguins Of Madagascar Clip Online

13 October 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

So far what we’ve seen from Madagascar spin-off Penguins Of Madagascar has focused on their present, as a well-drilled but shambolic military force that somehow manages to succeed despite half-arsed plans. A new clip from the film explores the birth of the team (and in the case of Private, his literal, gooey birth)…After proving their popularity in the Madagascar trilogy and testing their mettle with a TV series, the flightless feathered friends are now taking on the task of anchoring their own film that finds Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico and Private (Christopher Knights) joining forces with a super-secret animal organization called North Wind to fight the many-tentacled Octopus menace known as Dave (John Malkovich). North Wind's leader, meanwhile, is a wolf known only as Classified, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. Oh, and there’s a new penguin in the mix, Corporal, bearing Peter Stomare’s distinctive tones. »

Skipper, Kowalski, Rico & Private Star In New The Penguins Of Madagascar Trailer

13 October 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Featuring the voices of Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare and John Malkovich, here’s your first look at the brand new and funny trailer for 20th Century Fox’s and DreamWorks Animation’s The Penguins Of Madagascar.

Super spy teams aren’t born…they’re hatched. Discover the secrets of the greatest and most hilarious covert birds in the global espionage biz: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private.

These elitists of the elite are joining forces with a chic undercover organization, The North Wind.

Here’s a rundown of the team:

Agent Classified (Voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch)

First of all, his name is actually classified, and not “Classified.”  The leader of the North Wind — a spy agency that helps animals in need – he’s a highly-trained but cocky secret agent who underestimates the Penguins’ operation.

Short Fuse (Voiced by Ken Jeong)

The Penguins Battle a Vending Machine in New The Penguins Of Madagascar Clip

8 October 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While DreamWorks Animation has a kind of “throw everything against the wall and see what sticks” attitude when it comes to their films, every once in a while they put together something special.  I wasn’t necessarily looking forward to the spinoff feature The Penguins of Madagascar, but ever since that first trailer I’ve found myself wanting to see more comedic adventures from the titular penguins.  A new Penguins of Madagascar clip has now landed online, and it once again highlights the humorous interplay amongst the penguins and their love of Cheezy Dibbles as they find themselves squaring off against a vending machine.  It’s funny stuff, and I’m genuinely eager to catch the film in theaters next month. Hit the jump to watch the new Penguins of Madagascar clip, and if you missed Evan’s recap from watching some extended footage from the film, click here.  The »

Benedict Cumberbatch fans will howl for this new 'Penguins of Madagascar' trailer

6 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Benedict Cumberbatch's role in "Penguins of Madagascar" may be voice only, but the latest trailer for the forthcoming animated spinoff will probably make his fans howl anyway. The "Sherlock" star's perfect English diction is a sound for sore ears in the new spot for the "Madagascar" spinoff, in which Cumberbatch plays Classified, a wolf who serves as the leader of an "inter-species task force" dedicated to saving the lives of helpless animals. In addition to returning voice stars Tom McGrath (Skipper), Chris Miller (Kowalski), John Dimaggio (Rico) and Christopher Knights (Private), the film also features the aural talents of John Malkovich as villainous octopus Dr. Octavius Brine (a.k.a Dave). Will Cumberbatch fanatics show up for the film even though the actor himself never appears on screen? Check out the trailer below, then let us know what you think in the comments.

‘Penguins Of Madagascar’ Gets A New Trailer

6 August 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The best part of all three Madagascar films return in their own spin-off. Those devilishly sly penguins reveal themselves to be secret agents and must team up with a new and technologically advanced espionage team known as The North Wind in order to stop an evil Octopus known as Dave. The film has brought in some respectable talent to fill out the supporting roles, with Benedict Cumberbatch as Classified and John Malkovich as the normal named villain. Despite being a huge fan of the penguins as characters, as well as loving penguins in general, the trailer doesn’t have too many laughs, but a lot of that may be down to my feelings toward the general plot. The shift into espionage territory is more suited here than it was for Cars 2, but the animals have become almost too anthropomorphic. It almost feels as though humans don’t exist in this world, »

Dreamworks’ ‘The Penguins Of Madagascar’ Spring Into Action

12 June 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Madagascar trilogy became one of Dreamworks’ biggest cash cows, despite starring a bunch of animals that weren’t cows. As always in these animated features, there were a select group of supporting characters that completely stole the show. Shrek 2 had Puss ‘N Boots and Despicable Me had those Minions, but for the Madagascar franchise it was the quartet of sinister espionage penguins that captured everybody’s hearts. The guys already had their own TV show, but now it’s time they journeyed to the big screen in a madcap caper of their own, The Penguins Of Madagascar.

From the looks of the trailer, it seems as though the penguins, Skipper, Kowalski, Private and  Rico, are hired by an elite intelligence agency of animals. The penguins worked very well in their smaller roles in the Madagascar films, and in the short episodes of their TV series, but do they »
