The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for their upcoming family film Paddington. The movie is based on the popular 1958 children's book character created by Michael Bond. The movie is very British, so there is that dry british humor, which I love, mixed with the slapstick humor of a bear trying to live in a real world modern society.
The film stars Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington, along with Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, and Julie Walters.
The movie comes from Harry Potter producer David Heyman, and it tells the story of the "comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Firth) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says 'Please look after this bear. Thank you,' and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist."
The movie is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2014.
