First Teaser for Jim Carrey’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins

20th Century Fox has unveiled its first teaser for the upcoming family comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins, starring Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, and Philip Baker Hall. Based on the classic children’s tale by Richard and Florence Atwater, the story centers on a man who comes into the possession of some penguins and decides to turn them into a stage act in the Big Apple.

The film, directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls, Just Like Heaven), opens in theaters on June 17, 2011. Check out the trailer below:

Mr. Popper’s Penguins revolves around Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey), a house painter whose real passion is exploring the Arctic, although he has no means to do so. After writing letters to real Arctic explorers, one of them sends him a penguin. When another female penguin arrives from the zoo, they mate and Popper now has 12 penguins on his hands. He forms a stage act with the penguins dubbed ‘Popper’s Performing Penguins’ that goes on tour and features the animals causing mayhem at every stop.
