I have been away for a wedding for the last couple
days and have recently learned of a couple updates in the movie industry.
Before going away, CanMag.Com stated that the Robots
trailer is now online. Now, based on these recent updates, it seems that
Robots will not be the only CGI animation for 2005. Dreamworks
has recently put up a trailer of its upcoming animation titled Madagascar.
A film which will feature voice-overs from actors such as Chris Rock. The
other trailer released is the final trailer for the upcoming film, starring
Colin Farrell, Alexander.
Ferrell as Alexander
Madagascar vs Robots
Judging by the trailer of Madagascar and Robots, I believe
Robots to have the edge on the terms of comedy. This is probably
thanks to the voice over by Robin Williams for Robots. However,
this is just my own estimate, which can be turned over anytime with the
release of new trailers for the two films. To also throw credit towards
Madagascar, Dreamworks has pulled in a cast that includes Ben Stiller,
Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada-Pinkett Smith, and more.
One of the refreshing perks about Madagascar seems to be the difference
in style applied to the characters in this film. While most corners in animations
are rounded [such as facial features] the look applied to Madagascar
is rough, sharp, edges that actually add to a more three dimensional feel.
This look can add a refreshing change to movie-goers.

Final Alexander Trailer
I honestly enjoyed the first Alexander trailer more than this final
one. However, what the final trailer does add is more information on characters
besides Colin Farrell as Alexander. You will see much more of Val Kilmer,
as Alexander's general Philip, and Angelina Jolie, as Alexander's mother
Olympias. One character that still remains to be non-existent in the trailers
is that of Hephaestion, played by Jared Leto.
There are a couple more action shots that show that the battles portrayed
in the film are going to be pretty intense and graphic... Which mamma likes.
