Madagascar troop is back! Alex, Marty, Gloria and Mellman are still fighting to get back to the Big Apple and their beloved Central Park Zoo but they need to find the penguins first. The journey began when they travel to Monte Carlo and caught the attention of Animal Control. How do a lion, zebra, giraffe hippo, four penguins and a llama travel through Europe without attracting attention?
Chris Rock, returning to become Marty, shows that Zebras can have spots. "Marty is very, for lack of a better word, animated. So I get to be really big - there's no such thing as overacting in an animated movie. They just make the movie bigger for you - they just make it fit - you're never too big for the screen, that's what I like about it."
Other characters you should watch out for are "Breaking Bad" actor Bryan Cranston who plays a Russian circus tiger,Vitaly, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain stars a jaguar; and "Almost Famous" actress Frances McDormand who plays Monaco Animal Control Captain Chantel DuBois.
