The first trailer and teaser poster for the big screen adaptation of Paddington has been released.
Based on the books by Michael Bond, Paddington tells the story of Paddington Bear, the iconic and much-loved character. The film stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington. The synopsis for the movie is:
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.
Paddington will be released in the UK on 28th November 2014. Check out the first trailer and teaser poster below:
