‘Paddington 2’: Hugh Grant On That Big Dance Finale And “Weird History” With Ben Whishaw – The Contenders London

‘Paddington 2’: Hugh Grant On That Big Dance Finale And “Weird History” With Ben Whishaw – The Contenders London
Hugh Grant gave a lively — and funny — discussion during the Paddington 2 presentation at The Contenders London event. He talked about acting opposite of a stick, his “weird history” with the voice of Paddington Ben Whishaw, and that big Busby Berkeley-esque musical number at the end of the film.

In the Warner Bros. family film, Grant plays the villainous Phoenix Buchanan, a narcissistic former stage star looking to rekindle his glory. He is out to get Paddington and frames him for stealing, but in the end, justice is served and Phoenix gets put in prison — which leads to the big musical number with his fellow inmates. After the clip of was shown, Grant said that it was the first scene they shot for the movie.

“They are all professional dancers — touchingly, some of them haven’t worked for a long time and were out of shape,” joked Grant, “but at

New trailer for ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ promises a jolly sequel while ‘Aladdin’ teases without a Genie
New views of two of the Magic Kingdom’s highly anticipated film remakes just blew into town. Not only did the full-length “Mary Poppins Returns” trailer starring Emily Blunt as the practically perfect nanny just drop months before its arrival on Dec. 19, but Disney also unleashed an early taste for its upcoming live-action “Aladdin.”

As Ms. Poppins would say, everything seems spit spot with this spoonful of eye candy directed by Rob Marshall of “Into the Woods” and “Chicago” fame, from the tux-wearing penguin waiter to the carousel horses that come to life. But all is not well 20 years hence from when Mary last paid a visit to the Banks children. The Depression has settled in and the now-adult Michael (Ben Whishaw), apparently a widower with three small children, and Jane (Emily Mortimer) fear they might lose their home on Cherry Tree Lane. The fortuitous arrival of their childhood caretaker

Mary Poppins Returns Trailer Screams Rob Marshall Magic

Adding to the Mary Poppins world wasn’t an idea that initially had everyone cheering, but as Rob Marshall‘s follow-up to the Into the Woods there was some hope that this wasn’t just a Disney money grab. The teaser trailer set a magical stage, and Emily Blunt looked the part, but there wasn’t a lot to warrant serious excitement. We finally have a bit more to go on with the release of the latest trailer, and considering that it hits just before Christmas, it’s about time. Of course, it hits just before Christmas and it’s a Disney movie, so convincing people to go may be a marketing budget that is ultimately unnecessary. The main thing to note from the trailer is the reveal that Mary Poppins Returns is going to be something of a mirror effort. There’s a new, but similar “need” for Poppins to arrive,

There’s even a big, splashy and colorful animation-live action hybrid scene, complete with penguins.

All that’s missing is Dick Van Dyke – but not for long. Make sure to stick around for the entire trailer.
