20th Century Fox held the Los Angeles Premiere of MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS on June 12th, at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Along with a “white” carpet with MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS written on it, there was loads of cotton to make it look like snow drifts and snow blowing (actually it was soap suds) as the stars walked down the carpet at the start of the premiere. They had built a pen by the doors of the theatre to house the Penguins, who actually walked the whole length of the carpet. This live-action comedy stars Jim Carrey, who chilly relationship […]Read On »

The A-story follows the return of Detective Chance Briggs (PARKS & RECREATION star Nick Offerman). He was Dr. Owen Maestro’s (Rob Huebel) former police […]Read On »

That’s the case of CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL. Created and starring Rob Coddry as surgeon Blake Downs who likes to wear clown make-up to be more comforting to his young patients (even though it’s more terrifying than relaxing), […]Read On »
