Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012)

This is a solid movie. Alex the lion (Ben Stiller) suggests to Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippopotamus that they should go to Monte Carlo to get the penguins to fly them back to New York City. In Monte Carlo, Alex's gang's attempt to reach the penguins and King Julien blunders and sparks chaos in the Hotel De Paris. The hotel security calls Monaco Animal Control officer Captain Chantel DuBois to deal with the animals. In France, the plane crashes into a suburban rail yard as the authorities close in. They come across a circus train and bang on it, desperately trying to get in.

It is the first in the series to be released in 3D. Worldwide, it is the highest-grossing film in the series, the fourth highest-grossing DreamWorks Animation film, the second highest-grossing 2012 animated film, and the seventh highest-grossing film of 2012. Overall, it is the 9th highest-grossing animated film and the 49th highest-grossing film. The film took 66 and 94 days of release, respectively, to out-gross its two predecessors.
