With a cast to die for, we have just been sent the first poster and trailer for the upcoming Paddington film.
It was almost a year ago when I first heard about the film with an official press release.
We don’t see much from the below teaser trailer but enough of Paddington, both the bear & station, to get a feel of what the film will look like. All it does is tell the story of how he got from Peru to London. A long time by sea and then train by the looks of it. Then unceremoniously dumped outside the lost property office.
Not only we get the new Doctor Who, one of Tom Cruise’s ex wives as well as Mr Darcy himself! That’s not all we also get to see Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent in this adaptation of the classic children’s favourite bear.
Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who, inspired by a chance encounter with an English explorer, has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to smuggle her young nephew on board a boat bound for England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who find him with a label tied around his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.
But when Paddington catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn’t long before his home – and very existence – is under threat …
We still have a huge wait before the film hits the silver screen here in the UK as it has a November 28, 2014 release date.
