Website: horriblebosses2.com

In 2011, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) hatched a boneheaded plot to murder each other’s bosses and free themselves of the misery those employers inflicted on a daily basis. In this sequel, the trio goes into business for themselves with a product called The Shower Buddy, but their train to success is derailed when a crooked investor (Waltz) steals their idea. In an effort to recoup financial losses and save their company, the guys kidnap the investor’s son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom. Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey reprise their horrible boss roles, while Jamie Foxx is back as “Motherporker” Jones.

Website: madagascar.dreamworks.com

Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private – the beloved penguins from the Madagascar film series – set out in their first solo big-screen adventure in which the flightless four, who apparently moonlight as secret agents, join forces with an inter-species task force called North Wind to save the world from an octopus named Dr. Octavius Brine (John Malkovich). Joining the penguins on their mission are North Wind agents Corporal, a trigger-happy polar bear (Peter Stormare); Short Fuse, a bomb-happy seal (Ken Jeong); Eva, a not-so-happy snow owl (Annet Mahendru); and Agent Classified (Cumberbatch), a fearsome wolf who leads the team.
