Mr. Popper's Penguins
Mr. Popper (played by Jim Carrey) is a fast talking salesman who receives a gift from his late father that changes his life in ways he never could have imagined.

As the title suggests, Popper receives six large penguins. These aren't just ordinary penguins. They bond with one person and do not let go. They also have an incredible tracking ability (but that's another story.)

Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler are among the funnymen who have been targeted by leading animal rights group PETA as part of a campaign to keep animals out of the movies.

Activists were appalled to see real creatures in films like Mr. Popper's Penguins and Zookeeper alongside computerized doubles and now they're appealing to the stars in person, asking them to boycott films that feature performing animals.

Letters have been sent to Carrey and Sandler as well as Steve Carell, Will Ferrell, and Ben Stiller - all of whom have starred in and/or produced films that featured wild animals.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Green Lantern,' 'Mr. Popper's Penguins,' & More

Green Lantern
I was impressed last week by the J.J. Abrams picture “Super 8,” which pays skillful homage to the craft of film’s executive producer on the project, Steven Spielberg.

For more of my thoughts, check out my review if you haven’t already.

Hitting the box office this week are the Ryan Reynolds comic book vehicle “Green Lantern,” the Jim Carrey comedy “Mr. Popper’s Pe...
