Benedict Cumberbatch stars in new trailer for Penguins Of Madagascar: watch now

A new trailer has arrived for Penguins Of Madagascar , the upcoming spinoff from the Madagascar series focusing on the popular quartet of flightless birds.

The new film sees the penguins recruited into the global espionage business by Benedict Cumberbatch's debonair wolf, leader of an elite group of animal special agents.

Their enemy? John Malkovich's fiendish octopus, Octavius Brine, who has a dastardly plot to take over the world. Booooo!

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Rather than a cynical cash-in, this first look at the new spin-off looks genuinely funny, with Cumberbatch's languid wolf playing off against the chatterbox penguins to pleasing effect. Now bring on Octavius Brine!

Directed by Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith and featuring the voices of Andy Richter, Tom McGrath and Chris Miller, Penguins Of Madagascar will open in the UK on 5 December 2014.
