Win Mr Poppers Penguin Plushie Pack!

It prompted chants, it caused grown men and women to scream, it caused people to offer their first born children… ok, well not the last part, but it certainly took The Manchester MCM Expo by storm, and even the mention of its name got a huge cheer. What is it? I hear you ask, well it is a plushie penguin. Yes, you did read that right, a plushie penguin!

There, as part of the promotional giveaway for the forthcoming Mr Popper’s Penguins movie (in cinemas from 5th August), the penguin was so popular that we at MCM Buzz have managed to get hold of a couple more, and even managed to get some other bits to go with it – a Mr Popper’s Penguins beach ball and childs t-shirt to be precise.

But first a look at the movie behind the penguin. Mr Popper’s Penguins is the summer movie season’s first live-action family comedy event that stars Jim Carrey, whose chilly relationship with his family heats up after he inherits six adorable, lovable and mischievous penguins from his late father.

Mr. Popper (Jim Carrey), a highly successful real estate developer in Manhattan, is amicably divorced from Amanda (Carla Gugino), with two children (Madeline Carroll and Maxwell Perry Cotton) he sees on alternate weekends. Mr. Popper lives the life of luxury in his ultra-modern Park Avenue apartment and is well on his way to becoming partner at his prestigious firm. That is until the morning a final gift from Popper’s late father, a souvenir from Antarctica, arrives in a crate at Popper’s front door. Inside the wooden box he finds a world of trouble in the form of six penguins. 

What then follows is an adventure like no other and one that will force Mr Popper to understand the importance of family, be it human or not.  Described by Jim Carrey as a movie that, “stands out because it’s like nothing else out there,” the movie is sure to be a hit when it is released on August 5th and is bound to have both adults and children alike hooting and honking along with the on screen penguin madness.
