Paddington 2 December Hits
The Paddington sequel is good news for fans of film and furry creatures alike. The first film, an adaptation of Michael Bond’s classic children’s book series about a bear who is discovered in London’s Paddington station and adopted by a human family, met with both critical and box office success.
The film currently enjoys a 98 percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes (yes, it’s that good), and made $267 million worldwide on a $55 million budget. This represents the highest gross ever for a non-U.S. studio-released family film. Warner Bros. will release Paddington 2 in the US.
The UK full-length trailer for Paddington 2 and the film looks as wondrous as the first! We also learn a bit more about the plot, including Paddington’s decision to get a job so he can buy a birthday book for Aunt Lucy, Hugh Grant’s nefarious actor character who gets in the way, and Paddington’s troubles with the law.
Hugh Grant has been cast as Phoenix Buchanan, “a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years.” Brendan Gleeson will play “Knuckles” McGinty, “a notorious safe-cracker and legendary strongman who becomes an unexpected new ally for Paddington.”

The little bear from Peru voiced by Ben Whishaw is back in this sequel to the highly successful, London-set family film.
Given how much fun the first Paddington film was, you would think production company Heyday Films, Studiocanal and the assorted other backers of Paddington 2 might have splashed out a bit and given the newest instalment in this successful British-French financed mini-franchise a silly-cute, punning subtitle. Paddington 2: Grin and Bear It perhaps? Or the slightly smuttier sounding Paddington Bares All?…….
