'Paddington' Discovers the World in a Decidedly British Full Trailer
Following some slightly creepy first look photos, the first full trailer for The Weinstein Company's family film Paddington has arrived, based on the popular children's book character created in 1958. This tease of the film is British through and through, with plenty of dry humor to go hand-in-hand with the slapstick antics of a bear living in the real world. Colin Firth voices the title character, but we only hear him grunt and make other sounds as opposed to saying any real dialogue. No sign of Nicole Kidman in the film yet, but Paddington is the star after all, and he film has been moved to Christmas Day for a prime family debut.
Here's the latest trailer for Paul King's Paddington, originally from Yahoo:
Paddington is written directed by Paul King, produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter franchise) and based on the children's book character created by Michael Bond in 1958. The story follows the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British who travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who offer him a temporary haven. Colin Firth voices Paddington while Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters also star in the film which The Weinstein Company will release on December 25th in the United States.

So much bad in one trailer. They are talented.

They took a character that could have been charming and appealing to a wide array of audiences on its own merits and turned him into Mr. Bean. Well done.

Really gross. I hate it.

Paddington Bear recreating Gene Kelly's Singin' in the Rain is classic Paddington. There are multiple YouTube videos for reference. This trailer is closer to slapstick comedy from The Three Stooges, Jerry Lewis or Mr. Bean, funny but not charming, not gentle and much less appealing.

It's done by the guy who directed Mighty Boosh so think positive.

Trailers can be misleading and I am unfamiliar with the British comedy troupe, Mighty Boosh. I still have hope that the producer will not compromise this charming and gentle character of Paddington Bear.
