Michael Bond: ‘Paddington stands up for things, he’s not afraid of going to the top and giving them a hard stare’

19 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Paddington stars in his first film, his creator talks about the bear’s enduring appeal

It’s been more than 50 years since a little bear from darkest Peru found himself homeless and alone on Paddington station wearing a tag saying “Please look after this bear. Thank you”, before being adopted by the Brown family. In that time Paddington Bear has acquired ursine national treasure status in the UK and is equally adored abroad: Michael Bond’s 26 Paddington books have sold more than 35m copies worldwide and have been translated into 40 languages. And this weekend sees the release of the first Paddington feature film, which stars Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters, with Ben Whishaw providing the voice of the bear. An accompanying Paddington “trail” around London features 50 small statues of the bear decorated by celebrities ranging from David Beckham and Benedict Cumberbatch to Boris Johnson. »

Paddington review

27 November 2014 11:23 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paddington Bear goes from Peru to your local Odeon, with surprisingly strong results...

Now here's a family film that does an awful lot of things right. Based on Michael Bond's books, Paddington brings Peru's most famous bear to the screen, courtesy of a CG creation in the midst of a live action world.

Boasting the voice of Ben Whishaw (a relatively late replacement for Colin Firth), we're introduced to Paddington in an outstanding opening ten minutes, where his world is pretty much turned upside down. Through a series of events, and a tragedy, he ends up alone, at Paddington Station. Where nobody seems interested in him at all.

That is until the Brown family walk by. Hugh Bonneville's Mr Brown isn't much of an initial fan, but it's Samuel Joslin's Jonathan Brown who instantly warms to Paddington, and off they go to the London suburbs. It must »

33 Things on TV to Be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

27 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At this time of year, it's good to be reminded that contemporary TV offers such a cornucopia of riches. This past year, in particular, has offered plenty to give thanks for -- in terms of both what's on the air and what is not. Among the things I'm thankful for:

That "The Flash" is actually good.

That recent, pricelessly funny Billy Bob Thornton guest spot as a lovelorn urologist-to-the-stars on "The Big Bang Theory."

That I don't work at the "Today" show.

That David E. Kelley is writing a TV show for Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman to star in.

That this is the last season for "Two and a Half Men."

That "Seinfeld" reruns still hold up pretty well.

That Casper Kelly made '80s sitcom parody "Too Many Cooks." Whether or not you like the finished product -- and it's often pretty disgusting -- I'm glad someone had the impulse to make it. »

Paddington review: A delightfully British gem

27 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul King; Screenwriter: Paul King; Starring: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Nicole Kidman, Peter Capaldi; Running time: 95 mins; Certificate: PG

With the scars of this year's childhood-decimating Postman Pat: The Movie still fresh, you'd be forgiven for approaching this reimagined live action Paddington with some measure of trepidation.

After some inadvertently atmospheric early marketing spawned the unfortunate 'Creepy Paddington' meme, and more recently the BBFC slapped the film with a PG rating for mild sex references and bad language, there was all the more reason to wonder whether producer David Heyman and writer-director Paul King would obey the famous edict to "please look after this bear".

Mercifully, we needn't have worried. Britain's favourite duffel coat-clad bear is in thoroughly safe hands here, King unfurling his sprightly festive adventure with an arresting blend of thrills, spills and sharp comedy. Ben Whishaw, cannily recast in the lead voice role after the departure of Colin Firth, »

New Posters for The Peanuts Movie, Paddington, and The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water

26 November 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We've got a collection of posters for some family films coming our way over the following year.  Briefly: The Peanuts Movie – Snoopy rests peacefully in a new poster that continues to make the film look like it could be quite charming.  The animated film opens in 3D on November 6, 2015. Paddington – The lesson of this poster: If you adopt a talking bear, he will ruin your home.  Most home insurance policies do not cover water damage caused by bears.  The film opens in the U.K. on November 28th and in the U.S. on January 16, and stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, and Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington Bear. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge out of Water – The upcoming sequel takes the animated characters into the live-action realm and turns them into superheroes, and these posters provide the names of their alter-egos. »

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon to star in Big Little Lies

Earlier this year Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson raised the bar for content on the small screen with the highly received limited series True Detective. Taking a page out of their book are Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon, the latest duo to pair up for a newly announced limited series. Deadline reports that the two Oscar winners are set to star in Big Little Lies, to be written by Emmy winner David E. Kelley.

Big Little Lies is described as a “subversive comedy” that follows three mothers of kindergarteners, whose seemingly perfect lives derail into a classic murder-mystery that takes place during a catastrophic parents’ night at a school fundraiser event.

The project is based on the book of the same name by the Australian author Liane Moriarty (What Alice Forgot, Three Wishes). It was published in July and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Kidman (Blossom Films »

Nicole Kidman on playing the 'sugar and spice' villain in Paddington

26 November 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Considering how spectacular she is at it, Nicole Kidman doesn't play the villain nearly as often as we'd like.

In this week's delightful Paddington, she plays villainous taxidermist Millicent, a character whose ruthless ambition recalls one of her best performances ever in 1995's To Die For.

Watch the video above to hear Kidman tell Digital Spy why she loves playing the bad girl, and why shooting Paddington gave her flashbacks to her role in Moulin Rouge!.

Paddington is released in the UK this Friday (November 28), and in the Us on January 16, 2015. »

Paddington movie review: please look in on this movie, thank you

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Adorable. So witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky that you will cry tears of joy from the perfection of it. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): was worried about CGI creepiness

I have read the source material (and I am indifferent about it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

So, a small brown illegal immigrant — he doesn’t even have a passport — sneaks over the border into the United Kingdom… and is instantly welcomed into the home of a quintessentially English family in London, complete with a kooky elderly kinswoman of unspecified relation and a house that is the epitome of storybook chic.

And it is adorable.

Adorable.

Paddington is, in fact, so cute and witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky and positively downright altruistic that »

News Nuggets: Joni Mitchell shoots down Taylor Swift playing her in a biopic

26 November 2014 7:35 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Legendary singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell shoots down the idea of current superstar Taylor Swift playing her in a biopic. Although Swift has expressed interest in playing the role, Mitchell says, "I squelched that! I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones.'" Of the planned adaptation of Sheila Weller's "Girls Like Us," Mitchell adds, "It's just a lot of gossip, you don't have the great scenes. There's a lot of nonsense about me in books, assumptions, assumptions, assumptions."  Vulture -Break- Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will soon be coming to television. The high profile "Big Little Lies" will be a limited series based on the book by Liane Moriarty. It is a subversive comedy about three mothers whose "apparently perfect lives unravel to the poin to murder. TV Hall of Famer David E.

And in Other Actressexual News...

26 November 2014 6:28 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to share some news about Tfe’s favorite ladies.

Did you catch Nicole Kidman at the premiere of Paddington this past week? She looks so excited! Maybe it’s because she knew they’d be releasing news about her upcoming David E. Kelley limited TV series adaptation of Liane Moriarty's book Big Little Lies alongside sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated Reese Witherspoon? [Side-note, if you feel like you’re experiencing deja-vu, it’s because we had just been discussing other casting news about that property here at Tfe a couple of months ago!]

I can’t be the only one who’s already picturing the red carpet and party pictures that’ll bring together Nicole and Michelle Pfeiffer (otherwise known as Mrs E. Kelley) and while I’d love to be able to share some Pfeifferrific news, the next best thing: share some news on Annette Bening and thus manage a Tfe actressexual trifecta post.

La Bening’s newest film, The Face of Love will be in cinemas and available digitally from December 12 (though it'd apparently already come out back in March? »
