Mr. Popper's Penguins
Tuesday 6th December 2011
Just in time for Christmas, enjoy Jim Carrey (A Christmas Carol) in Mr. Popper's Penguins, on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on 12th December 2011 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman who is clueless when it comes to the important things in life until he inherits six, "adorable" and mischievous penguins.
As Mr. Popper quickly gets acquainted with - and increasingly attached to - his winged roommates, his life quickly unravels: the deal he's long been working on with a formidable socialiate, Mrs. Van Gundy, played by the acclaimed Angela Lansbury (Murder She Wrote, Beauty and the Beast), is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail. While Popper's penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - they teach him valuable lessons about family- human and otherwise!
Mr. Popper's Penguins is based on a novel, originally published in 1938, written by the husband and wife team of Richard and Florence Atwater. Awarded the Newbery Medal in 1939, Mr. Popper's Penguins became a classic through generations and is a staple on elementary school shelves to this day. The Blu-ray and DVD bonus feature The Legacy of Mr. Popper's Penguins highlights literary experts and family of Richard and Florence Atwater telling the fascinating story behind the story.
From the director of Freaky Friday and Mean Girls and the producer of Gulliver's Travels and the Garfield franchise, Mr. Popper's Penguins will be available on 12th December 20111 on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download. The Blu-ray and DVD also feature a never-before-seen animated short, Nimrod & Stinky's Antartic Adventure, in which Zookeeper Nat Jones flies to the antarctic determined to get Popper's Penguins back. The penguins, led by Nimrod and Stinky, outsmart him once again.
