The Weinstein Co has released a brand new trailer for Paddington.
is adapted from Michael Bond’s books for children, which have been published in 40 languages and sold 35 million copies.
The story is about a young bear from Peru who longs to visit England and decides to travel to London. He reaches the huge Paddington Station and realizes he is lost and alone in a big city that was barely what he had expected, but a sympathetic family adopts him and he finds the peaceful haven he had dreamt about – until a taxidermist sets her sights on him.
Produced by Harry Potter producer David Heyman, and directed by Paul King (The Mighty Boosh), the live-action/CGI comedy stars Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington, Nicole Kidman as the evil taxidermist, and Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins as the Browns, the sympathetic couple who take him in.
Kidman and Firth have worked together on several projects recently including, Before I Go to Sleep and The Railway Man.
The film will hit Australian and US theatres on 11 December and 25 December respectively.
StudioCanal and Hoyts Distribution will release the film in Oz.
