San Diego’s Penguins Get First Look at Jim Carrey’s New Movie “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”

by Daniel Haim

You think we were kidding? Totally serious. The tuxedo residents of SeaWorld San Diego’s got the first look at Jim Carrey’s new movie, or should we say enjoyed a special screening of the first trailer for the 20th Century Fox comedy Mr, Popper’s Penguins, on March 23. In their icy wonderland, the Penguins watched the trailer while pecking at popcorn boxes filled with herring. Starring Jim Carrey, Mr. Popper’s Penguins opens in theaters everywhere June 17th. (Word on the ice is that the Penguins, while being big fans of Mr. Carrey’s, were most excited about the movie debuts of the six Gentoo Penguins.)

With more than 130 million visitors since its opening on March 21, 1964, SeaWorld is San Diego’s leading tourist attraction and one of the most popular marine-life parks in the world. The founding principles of education, entertainment, research and conservation make SeaWorld an ideal place to learn about, enjoy and gain an appreciation for some of the ocean’s most fascinating animals. SeaWorld San Diego is one of 10 parks operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. In all means, this is what we call San Diego entertainment.
