‘Paddington’ Gets A Blue Poster

7 April 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Please don’t misinterpret my title there, as what I’m simply trying to say is that the new poster for the upcoming Paddington movie is that the poster literally has a lot of blue in it. The part-cgi, part live-action family adventure hits cinemas everywhere this December courtesy of David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter series and last year’s superb Gravity.

Adapted from Michael Bond’s beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young bear with an endearing talent for comic chaos.

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. »

A 'Paddington' Teaser Trailer Arrives, All the Way From Peru (Video)

5 March 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The classic children's book character Paddington Bear is getting his first shot at the big screen in this December's "Paddington," and it's all veddy British and polite. Children's movies these days are a big splashy affair, with plenty of IMAX bells and 3D whistles to keep everyone entertained, but "Paddington" is a slightly more subdued offering that combines live action with animation.

Mr. Darcy himself, Colin Firth, is lending his voice to the marmalade sammich-loving bear. His human costars include Nicole Kidman as a museum taxidermist who's got her eye on Paddington; Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville as his adoptive parents, the Browns; Jim Broadbent as antique shop owner Mr. Gruber; and Julie Walters as the Browns' nanny Mrs. Bird.

In fact, the talent attached to the movie is all rather fancy and adult in an art-house sort of way. The special effects were handled by Framestore, which did the Oscar-winning special effects for "Gravity, »
