TRAILER: Jim Carrey in 'Mr. Popper's Penguins' Teaser
The comedy, directed by Mark Waters, hits theaters June 17.
Fox has put out its first teaser for the comedy Mr. Popper's Penguins, starring Jim Carrey in the adaptation of the classic children's book. Bringing back memories of Ace Ventura, here we get scenes of Carrey mugging with animals -- penguins to be precise -- with an "Ice Ice Baby" punchline.
It looks like the studio is pitching this well in the young kids and families demo. The film, directed by Mark Waters, hits theaters June 17.
Before the trailer rolls, there’s footage of penguins at SeaWorld “watching” the trailer while pecking at popcorn boxes filled with herring, making for a clever marketing stunt.
