We maybe in what I call the ‘business end’ of the summer and what I mean there is the weather should be going into it’s best years but this is UK and predicting good weather is as easy as saying Adam Sandler will win a oscar which will never happen! So why not bring a little bit of winter into your Summer Sun? MR POPPER’S PENGUIN’S Jim Carey’s latest attempt to make us laugh in a big screen adaptation of the book of the same name from 1938 which sees Carey play Mr Popper clueless about important things in life but 6 little penguins open his eyes to life’s importance.
When you see notices at start or at the end of movies “No Animals were harmed in the filming of this film” you always hope that’s true but in the past week Jim Carey, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell along with Ben Stiller where apparently sent letters from PETA the actors mentioned have all appeared (Carey with Mr Popper) been asked to boycott the films they recently starred, directed or produced because of the use of ‘wild animals’ Like any living being cruelty wont be tolerated and stories have came out of the abuse the animals had to curtail on set. Obviously we don’t have any evidence to say it did happen or even it didnt happen. PETA are asking for the boycott of the actors films , unfortunately the qaulity of Carey’s recent movies and Sandlers every movie we wont be checking their movies out with positivity.
Anyway back to Jim Carey’s new film possibly MR POPPER’S PENGUINS could be his first step back to the success we remember his from in his heyday back in the 1990’s, this movie was released a while back in USA and had a respectable box office return, not spectacular but an improvement on previous movies. Fox have sent us 3 new clips the first a musical clip to introduce the penguins Stinky, Bitey, Captain, Loudy, Lovey and Nimrod then its 2 more clips which show the penguins causing some havoc in one of New York’s prime tourist attractions with Jessica Fletcher!
Mr. Popper’s Penguins is released in cinemas 5th August. and stars Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond, and Philip Baker Hall. James Tupper, Clark Gregg, David Krumholtz, and Andrew Stewart-Jones.
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.
