Danger & Espionage in the First Trailer for 'Penguins of Madagascar'
With the release of How to Train Your Dragon 2 this weekend, DreamWorks Animation is ready to get the hype machine started on their spin-off The Penguins of Madagascar. The animation studio just decided to move up the release of the film to November, swapping dates with their original film Home, and now we finally get a taste of the comedic spy adventure. Benedict Cumberbatch teams up with the penguins as a wolf named Agent Classified as part of a spy sect called North Wind. There's no sign of John Malkovich as the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine yet. If you don't like Madagascar, this probably isn't for you. Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar, originally from Moviefone:
The Penguins of Madagascar is directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar franchise) and Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie) and written by John Aboud and Michael Colton ("Sit Down Shut Up," "Allen Gregory"). Featuring the Penguins from DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar franchise, this 3D comedy adventure stars Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private in their very own spy thriller where they must join forces with the chic spy organization, the North Wind, led by Agent Classified (Benedict Cumberbatch) to stop the villainous Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich). 20th Century Fox releases the animated film November 26th this fall.
