Dates released for two more Lego movies

8 August 2014 3:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a busy week for Warner Bros. after they dropped the news that they were planning out their DC Cinematic Universe all the way up to 2020. And now, they look to be expanding their Lego universe too.

Already announced, The Lego Movie 2 will be released on May 26th 2017 while its spin-off Ninjago is set for a year earlier on September 23rd 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. are planning to release two more Lego Movies on May 25th 2018 and May 24th 2019. These could both be Lego Movie sequels, but could also be spin-offs to the franchise.

With the announcement of Warner’s DC movie plans and the date change for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in order to not fight against Captain America 3, it should be noted that the 2018 release date puts the movie in competition with DreamWorks’ Madagascar (May 18th) and the as-of-yet »

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" hits theaters on »

‘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, »

We also get some glimpses of John Malkovich as the octopus villain Dr. Octavius Brine. I might actually be looking forward to this one in the fall. Watch below! Here's the new trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Penguins of Madagascar from Apple: You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Penguins of Madagascar right here.

Dreamworks has released a second trailer for Penguins of Madagascar, the animated Madagascar spin-off centered on the only characters that gave me any level of amusement in those films (though I never did see the third one). Set for release on November 26, the film follows penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private as they must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (we could tell you his name, but then... you know), voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine (voiced by John Malkovich) from taking over the world. Additional voice talent includes Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Chris Knights, Ken Jeong, Annett Mahendru and Peter Stormare. Watch the new trailer below. »

Tom McGrath says 'Penguins of Madagascar' co-star Benedict Cumberbatch is 'hilarious'

5 August 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The thing about animation is, you can be cast opposite a pair of incredible actors and never actually get to work with them. "That's animation. I wish we could be in mo-cap suits jumping around together, but it's rare when schedules align like that," said "Penguins of Madagascar" voice actor/screenwriter (and "Madagascar 1-3" director) Tom McGrath of not having the opportunity to collaborate with A-list co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich in person. "So, I'm hoping...we still have a couple scenes to do to finish the movie, so I'm hoping I can get with John and Benedict at some point." Oh, and no surprise to fans of either actor, but McGrath assures us that both Cumberbatch and Malkovich are "hilarious" in the "Madagascar" spinoff, in which they play wolf leader Classified and "disgruntled octopus" Dr. Octavius Brine, respectively. To watch McGrath "get into character" as his penguin character Skipper and more, »

Penguins Of Madagascar Comic-Con Panel Recap: A Great DreamWorks Animated Film Might Be on the Way

24 July 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Following the panel for Home, DreamWorks Animation moved to Penguins of Madagascar.  In the upcoming spinoff, the scene-stealing penguins take the lead, and are joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his covert team of protective animals as they try to stop Dave (John Malkovich), a malevolent octopus.  Even though I’ve never been much for the Madagascar movies, the Penguins have always been wonderful, and I was interested to see if they could carry their own movie.  Judging by what they showed us today, they could have one of the funniest films of the year. Hit the jump for my Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel recap. They started off with the teaser trailer, which you can watch below: Panel Highlights: Moderator Craig Ferguson brought on Directors Simon J. Smith, and Eric Darnell, and the voice of Skipper, Tom McGrath. Smith says they’re about 70% finished with the movie. »

Comic-Con: Cumberbatch in Con debut

24 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Benedict Cumberbatch earned a rapturous reception from the adoring masses in Hall H during his maiden Comic-Con appearance at the DreamWorks Animation panel on Thursday (24) and hinted at future visits.

When asked by an audience member towards the end of the panel – the first by a Hollywood studio at this year’s show – if he would return as Sherlock next year, the British actor said “Possibly.”

To the business at hand. Cumberbatch was in San Diego to talk up his first ever voice role in an animation. He plays Classified, a secret agent wolf who aids the eponymous Penguins Of Madagascar, due out in November.

“I like the idea of unpacking a spy and trying to make him more human, if that makes sense with a wolf,” he said.

Cumberbatch said he jumped at the chance to work with John Malkovich, another Comic-Con debutant in attendance who voices the part of the villainous Dave the octopus.
