Movie Previews: Madagascar
It was either this or Monster-in-Law and I thought some animal fun over J-Lo should win over the audiences.
So, on May 26th, catch Madagascar!
Starring the voices of Ben Stiller (“Meet the Parents”), Chris Rock (“Head of State”), David Schwimmer (“Friends”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Collateral”).
Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction of New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer) and Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) have lived their entire lives in blissful captivity, with regular meals provided and an admiring public to adore them.
Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty allows his curiosity to get the better of him and, with the help of some prodigious penguins, makes his escape to explore the world he has been missing. Alex, Melman and Gloria go after him, but before they can go wild in the streets, they are captured, crated and put on a ship to Africa… to be ultimately set free.
When those plotting penguins sabotage the ship, Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria find themselves washed ashore on the exotic island of Madagascar. Now, these native New Yorkers have to figure out how to survive in the wild and discover the true meaning of the phrase “It’s a jungle out there.”
