Paddington 2 — U.S. Trailer


added: Tue, Nov 28th '17

Warner Bros has released a new U.S. trailer for "Paddington 2," the upcoming sequel to the hit 2014 family comedy, which is based on author Michael Bond's classic children's book series about an English family that adopts a small, talking, accident-prone bear who wears an oversized floppy red hat and a blue duffel coat and has a strong fondness for marmalade.

Featuring the voice of Ben Whishaw and starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters, the movie sees the Paddington bear getting embroiled in another madcap adventure. This time, he's facing a new antagonist in the form of Hugh Grant who plays Phoenix Buchanan, a washed-up actor -- "a master of disguise" -- who secretly steals a priceless pop-up book from a local antique shop, for which Paddington is unjustly arrested and sent to prison.

Once again produced by "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman and directed by comedian Paul King (of "The Mighty Boosh" fame), who also helmed the original movie, "Paddington 2" will make its stateside debut next month, opening in theaters January 12th.

Note: the movie was originally acquired by the Weinstein Company. But since the recent news of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, producers of the family-friendly film forced the studio to sell the North American distribution rights to Warner Bros. The sequel will not be associated with the Weinstein Co.

Paddington is 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 100th 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.
