30 December 2011 6:01 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer 2012 is nowhere near as massive as Summer 2011.  But you know, that may be a blessing in disguise.  Summer 2012 still has more than its fair share of films to look forward to, and the big ones are especially noteworthy.  How can a summer with The Avengers, Prometheus, and The Dark Knight Rises Possibly go wrong?  Well, it can't.  So, even though Summer 2012 isn't as over-packed as Summer 2011 one, there's still plenty for film fans to salivate over.  So without further ado, let's get started!  Part Three of Tmp's Prelude to 2012 begins right now!

Summer 2012 is certainly kicking off with a bang.  Releasing everywhere on May 4 is The Avengers, the long awaited superhero film putting all our favorite Marvel characters (minus Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, and all the ones you Really like) into one team.  The build up for The Avengers has been intense, with over four years and five films of investment, »

"The Dictator" trailer shows Sacha Baron Cohen bringing absolute power to America

14 December 2011 9:33 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

It's nice to see a return to form for Sacha Baron Cohen. Ever since 2009's "Bruno," the hilarious impersonator has set his alter-egos aside onscreen for roles in "Hugo" and the upcoming "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." That's why we were so happy to see that he was also working on the comedy "The Dictator" based on a script he wrote, following the happy tradition of "Bruno," "Borat" and "Da Ali G Show."

Needless to say, Cohen is one of the funniest comedians around. And if if we needed more evidence, a trailer for "The Dictator" has finally hit the web and it proves that Cohen is still as hilarious as ever.

"The Dictator" looks to be a cross between the faux-documentary-style filmmaking that Cohen popularized in "Borat" and "Bruno" and a straight-scripted comedy. The inclusion of actors like John C. Reilly, Ben Kingsley, »

Sacha Baron Cohen may face the music in Les Misérables movie

Hugo star set to take role of villainous Thénardier in film adaptation of hit musical

Sacha Baron Cohen looks set to take a role in Tom Hooper's big-screen version of the Les Misérables musical. The director's follow-up to The King's Speech will see Baron Cohen, currently starring as a bumbling station master in Martin Scorsese's Hugo, take the role of Les Mis villian Thénardier.

The news broke over the weekend when the Mail on Sunday's Baz Bamigboye revealed that Baron Cohen was in final negociations for the part. The casting appeared to be confirmed when Associated Press picked up a tweet by comedian Matt Lucas. Lucas has played Thénardier in a long-running West End adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel, and praised Hooper's choice. "Sacha will be amazing in the Les Mis movie," he wrote. "He's the funniest man in the world and a good friend. Am excited to see his Thénardier. »

Watch: 'Madagascar 3' Teaser Likes to Move It, Move It... to Europe

12 December 2011 11:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the crass DreamWorks Animation properties out there ("Shrek," "Kung Fu Panda," etc) the one that seems the most rudderless and out-of-touch is the "Madagascar" franchise. The original film had a semi-funny premise, about a pack of wild animals in a New York zoo (portrayed by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith) accidentally washed ashore on the titular island. The problem was that the characters were so thinly sketched, both from a design point (they seem to have been envisioned as 2D characters, with blocky, cartoonish features) and in their characteristics (they all but had to find the right gender/racial stereotype and stick to it!) The second film was a complete retread of the first, and now, with the teaser trailer for the third film, "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" (what an awkward title), we see them changing up the formula... not that it'll »

First Poster for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

12 December 2011 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is the third installment of the Madagascar film series produced by DreamWorks Animation. Directed by Eric Darnell it is the first 3-D film in the franchise. Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippopotamus, and Melman the Giraffe set out to return to New York after escaping to Africa. Dependent on the mechanical know-how of the notorious monkeys, their plan inevitably goes awry and they find themselves stranded in Monte Carlo, where they join up with a traveling circus by chance. Led by the venerable tiger Vitali, the animal-centered circus has seen better days. During the course of a tour through a series of European cities that ends in a fabulous big top in the heart of London, Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman help Vitaly, Gia the jaguar, and »

This Week In Trailers: Jiro Dreams of Sushi, A Separation, Lads and Jockeys, The Kick, Redline

11 December 2011 9:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Jiro Dreams of Sushi Trailer Is it nutty that this is the kind of trailer that makes me love documentaries as an art form? No »

Madagascar 3 gets a trailer

11 December 2011 3:54 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The first trailer for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted has landed online. Despite it being a threequel that no one was too desperate for, there's actually a fair few chuckles in this promo. The zoo escapees ended up in Africa at the end of a largely forgettable Part II, but, as the subtitle indicates, the gang hit Europe this time round. There's a couple of strong sight gags, and the penguins are as reliable as ever when it comes to scoring laughs. Having the characters chased across Europe looks like it'll give the franchise a boost of...

Teaser Trailer for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

10 December 2011 9:02 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Six years ago, Alex the Lion (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the Hippopotamus (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer) were safely on their way from the Central Park Zoo to a wildlife preserve in Kenya when a botched penguin hijacking found them washed up on the shores of an island off the coast of Africa in Madagascar.

In the sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, the gang decided that it was time that they return to New York City, but their plane crash-landed in the heart of Africa and, of course, trouble ensued. Now, everyone's favorite animal entourage returns in their first 3D adventure, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, in which they once again try to return to their home at the Central Park Zoo only to end up getting stranded in Europe, hooked up with a traveling circus and pursued by »

Casting Bits: Sacha Baron Cohen in ‘Les Misérables’, Selena Gomez in ‘Spring Breakers’, Holly Hunter in Diablo Cody’s Directorial Debut

9 December 2011 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] There's still no word on who'll be playing Éponine [2] in Tom Hooper's Les Misérables, but the project has landed yet another well-known star to play her father. According to LondonNet [3], Sacha Baron Cohen is set to join Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Eddie Redmayne in the musical, in the role of the villainous inn owner Monsieur Thénardier. Helena Bonham Carter was said to be in talks [4] to play Thénardier's wife earlier this year, but it's not clear whether she's actually attached at this point. Cohen did a bit of singing in his last big-screen musical, Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and is slated to do still more as the lead of that Freddie Mercury biopic [5] from producer Graham King. In terms of non-singing roles, Cohen recently appeared in Martin Scorsese's Hugo, and already has three more movies scheduled to open next year -- The Dictator, »

Noah Baumbach’s ‘Madagascar 3’ Trailer

8 December 2011 5:21 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Alright, so he may not have directed the film but Noah Baumbach has sole screenwriting credit on the third film in the Madagascar saga. The Greenberg director has helped out on studio films like Tower Heist, but he must have had a good experience on Fantastic Mr. Fox, because he is back for animation seconds here.

The crew went back to Africa last time and now they head to Europe in this incarnation. I actually found the first films to have a fun, off-kilter vibe and Baumbach may be the one to push it a little further here. Directed by Eric Darnell (who gave us the others & Antz), one can see the trailer below via Yahoo for the film featuring voicework by Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted arrives on June 8th, 2012.
