You can't go wrong with a penguin.

They’re handsome, great at comedy and work for free – in short, the perfect movie star.

They also all look identical, which comes in handy when the lead gets eaten by a killer whale or flattened by a farting elephant seal.

Following “the same” King Penguin from dorky bachelor to doting parent, David Attenborough’s charming doc uses 3D cameras to jazz up its coming-of-age tale.

It’s not as epic as March Of The Penguins , or as stunning as the BBC’s usual slo-mo nature porn – but with nary an animated tap dance in sight, it’s still king of the 3D penguins.
