A new trailer has been released for Paddington 2 and it's wonderfully charming and fun. I enjoyed the first film that was released and this sequel, which stars Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson, looks like it will be just as good. If you haven't watched the first film, you should check it out! It might surprise you.
The sequel finds "Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief…"
Hugh Grant takes on the role of Windsor Gardens’ local celebrity, Phoenix Buchanan, "a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years." Then there's Brendan Gleeson who plays “Knuckles” McGinty, "a notorious safe-cracker and legendary strongman who becomes an unexpected new ally for Paddington." Gleeson looks awesome in this movie!
Paddington 2 is directed by Paul King (Paddington, Come Fly with Me, The Mighty Boosh) and the film also stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin and Ben Whishaw will once again provide the voice of Paddington.
Paddington 2 will open in UK theaters on November 10, 2017 and in North America on January 12, 2018.
