Mr. Popper's Penguins - Soundtrack
08 Jun 2011    

By Tommy Pihl (JCO Editor-In-Chief)

We now have got the track list and cover for the soundtrack for the Jim Carrey comedy "Mr. Popper's Penguins". It is scheduled for December 9 via Varese Sarabande Records.

The album includes the original score from composer Rolfe Kent, who collaborated on the project with director Mark Waters for the sixth time. The orchestral score was recorded in May on the Fox Alfred Newman scoring stage in Los Angeles.

Mr. Popper's Penguins


Rolfe Kent's unexpected texture, sounds and a signature musical personality are the hallmarks of his work. The British composer has scored more than 40 films including "Charlie St. Cloud," "Sideways" (for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Critics' Choice Award in 2007), "About Schmidt," "Election," "Mean Girls," "Freaky Friday," "Nurse Betty," "Legally Blonde," "Oxygen," "Wedding Crashers," "Just Like Heaven," "The Matador," "The Hunting Party," "The Lucky Ones," "17 Again," "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Thank You for Smoking," "The Men Who Stare at Goats" and "Up in the Air." Kent also composed the Emmy-nominated main title theme for the hit Showtime series "Dexter."

Kent has the distinction of attracting and sustaining professional relationships with directors as popular and diverse as Alexander Payne, Mark Waters, Jason Reitman, Burr Steers and Richard Shepard, among others.
