Mada­gas­car 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

Mada­gas­car 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” will have its world pre­miere at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val in May, mak­ing the Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion film the first major sum­mer release to be on the fest’s schedule.

As well, Mada­gas­car 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is just the sec­ond film announced to play Cannes. (Wes Anderson’s Moon­rise King­dom, the fes­ti­val opener, is the first.) Para­mount will release the 3D fea­ture in the United States on June 8.

Back in 2004, Dream­Works pre­miered Shrek 2 in com­pe­ti­tion at Cannes. Other Dream­Works films screened there were Shrek (2000), Over the Hedge (2006) and Kung Fu Panda (2008). Although not in the fes­ti­val itself, DWA held its inter­na­tional jun­ket for last year’s Kung Fu Panda 2 in Cannes.

The first two Mada­gas­car movies grossed a com­bined total of over $1.1 bil­lion world­wide. Mada­gas­car 3 is the first of the fran­chise to be filmed and released in 3D.
