The following films will be premiering this week in Barcelona cinemas:
Madagascar 3 (Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted) - Following the huge success of its prequels, Madagascar 3 continues the story of a group of animal friends who have already escaped their New York zoo and are making sure they never return. The companions appear to have found the perfect hiding place: a travelling circus in Europe. A whole host of top-notch actors including Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith and Sacha Baron Cohen are voicing the animated characters in this hilarious Pixar film.
El Skylab (Le Skylab) - A French comedy written and directed by Julie Delpy, which follows the stroy of ten-year-old Albertine and her large and slightly nutty family, who gather in a house in Brittany to celebrate Granny Amandine's birthday. It's 1979 and an irrational fear that NASA's Skylab space station could plummet to Earth at any moment throws everything off course.
Terraferma - This French/Italian drama depicts the desire to bring tourism to Sicily, an island which was built around its fishermen and the simplicity of island life, and the struggle to adapt to this change. Seeing the potential of this beautiful island, it seems like a great idea at first. However, nothing is as simple as it seems. Although this film has political undertones, it mostly deals with the impact of illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and changing the way generations have lived on the island on a human level.
