20th Century Fox (via Fandango and thanks to Trailer Addict for the embed) have released the new trailer for Jim Carrey’s new movie, Mr. Popper’s Penguins. This trailer came out earlier this week and we’re slowly catching up on our trailers after such a crazy couple of weeks!

Mr. Popper’s Penguins is directed by Mark Waters and also stars Carla Gugino, Madeline Carroll and the legendary Angela Lansbury.

Synopsis: An adaptation of the beloved 1938 children’s book, which won the 1939 Newbery Award. Mr. Popper is a house painter whose dreams of Arctic exploration prompt him to write letters to real explorers. One of them sends him a penguin, which he keeps in the icebox. Before he knows it, the painter has a litter of 12 beaked birds. They eat voraciously, leading him to form Popper’s Performing Penguins.

As you’ll see when you watch the trailer, this is completely crazy and brings back memories of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective from 1994! Has it really been that long?!

According to IMDb, it’s set for release in the UK 1st August this year. We’ll obviously keep you posted.
