From the creators of Madagascar comes the funniest new movie of the year, starring your favorite penguins – Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private – in a spy-tacular new film!
The movie is non-stop action, as the Penguins chase a villain around the world to a final showdown in the Battery, New York City, assisted and sometimes working at cross-purposes with the secret team led by Classified. The jokes and sight-gags are also non-stop, with a nice mixture aimed at both the children and the adults in the audience. If a few of the jokes fall flat, plenty more are laugh out-loud funny.

The extended edition for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug will contain 25 minutes of new scenes, in contrast with An Unexpected Journey’s 13 minutes. It also has over 9 hours of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, detailing the monumental task of bringing the incredible world of Middle Earth to the screen.
SMAUG is darker, moodier, and more mature than any Middle Earth film we’ve seen thus far. Evil hangs over our heroes like a black pall (literally). Beset on all sides by revenge-seeking orcs, wargs, terrifying spiders, pale creepy-crawlies, double-crossing elves, treacherous humans, a growing Evil in a ruined Elvish citadel, and a huge, vain, fire-breathing dragon…both the heroes and the audience are plunged into a terrifyingly new world. And there’s a lot of new stuff to feast your eyes on along the way.

Benedict Cumberbatch shines as real-life war hero and pioneer of modern-day computing, Alan Turing, who saved millions of lives by cracking Germany’s so-called unbreakable code during WWII.
The film opens in 1941 as England and Germany have declared war against each other. The Brits are getting their butts beat as the rest of Europe has already fallen to Hitler and the Nazis. If England can somehow decode the infamous German Enigma machine, perhaps the war can be turned. Turing (Cumberbatch), a brilliant mathematician, is assigned to help with the decoding process. Socially inept, he has a hard time working with his small cadre of code breakers and they are having no success.
Knightly plays, brilliant in her own right, Joan Clarke, who helps Turing, outside the all-boys group. While great friends and accomplished collaborators, they don’t become romantic for reasons that become obvious during the film. Turing’s focus is on the building and development of the machine that will provide a mechanical process of encryption that is faster than any group of humans can process given the time constraints. The Nazis change the encoding every day.
