20th Century Fox have debuted the teaser trailer for Jim Carey’s summer comedy, MR POPPER’S PENGUINS. It tells the story of Mr Popper, a businessman whose life changes when he inherits some penguins. It also stars Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond, and Philip Baker Hall. James Tupper, Clark Gregg, David Krumholtz, and Andrew Stewart-Jones.
I know it’s for the kids, but are we really interested in another Jim Carey movie?! Because frankly he hasn’t made a good one in a very longtime and soon as the Vanilla Ice “Ice, Ice Baby” kicked off (not Jedward thankfully) this movie lost my respect.
MR POPPER’S PENGUINS will be out August 5th in UK&Ireland and June 17th USA.
Adventure-loving house painter Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey) contends with the problem of having too many penguins in director Mark S. Waters’ adaptation of author Richard Atwater’s beloved children’s book. Shortly after penning a letter to a team of Arctic explorers, Mr. Popper is surprised to receive a penguin in the mail. Later, after making his mischievous new pal a cozy new home in the freezer, the hapless Mr. Popper comes into possession of a playful female penguin as well. Before long Mr. Popper finds himself surrounded by a growing family of the flightless birds, and begins training them to perform in a traveling show dubbed Popper’s Performing Penguins. With each new town the show travels to, pandemonium is quick to follow.
