Watch: Jim Carrey in Cute Teaser Trailer for 'Mr. Popper's Penguins'
Back in January, we got our first look at some photos with Jim Carrey and some adorable penguins on the set of the adaptation of the classic children's book Mr. Popper's Penguins. Now we have a cute teaser trailer featuring Carrey and these lovable Arctic birds that should have families excited for the film's release this summer on June 17th. Though the comedy is a bit silly, the penguins aren't made out to be annoying talking animals like Yogi Bear or Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Carrey always brings the right amount of energy and charisma to any role. This could be worth checking out, but you can see for yourself below.
Here's the teaser trailer for Mr. Popper's Penguins:

The original story, written by Richard and Florence Atwater in 1938, has been changed to move Mr. Popper to present-day New York. He sends a "fan letter" to an explorer because he regrets never visiting the North or South poles and eventually ends up receiving six penguins, which he must take care of. At the helm is experienced family-film director Mark Waters, of Mean Girls, Just Like Heaven, Spiderwick Chronicles and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past with a script by Jared Stern (The Princess and the Frog), Sean Anders and John Morris (She's Out of My League). Mr. Popper's Penguins arrives in theaters starting June 17th.
