Paddington Teaser Trailer Arrives
He's coming to a different kind of jungle...
It's hard to say what, but there’s something about this Paddington trailer that makes us think of a softer, gently Predator. Maybe it's the opening shot high about the Latin American jungle or a dangerous(ish) hunter arriving in the big city spoiling for trophies - okay, marmalade – and an unwitting cityscape unaware of the mayhem to ensue. Well, Predator 2 then.
While that analogy heads off into the jungle to die, click below to catch the first glimpse of our furry hero arriving in – you guessed it! – Paddington Station in the movie’s first teaser trailer, fresh in on the 4.24 from Yahoo! Movies.
Directed by Bunny And The Bull and The Mighty Boosh man Paul King and produced by Gravity’s Oscar hero David Heyman, the movie will set the ursine explorer on his path to adventures in the West London area. We don’t hear him speak in this smidgeon of Paddington, but Colin Firth’s voice is in there somewhere, ready to indignantly issue forth such proclamations as, “I'm not a criminal, I'm a bear!” when he leaves the bath running.
All the other usual Paddington characters will be human, with Jim Broadbent as Mr. Gruber, Julie Walters as housekeeper Mrs. Bird, and Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins as Mr. and Mrs. Brown respectively. Nicole Kidman provides the peril as an evil taxidermist looking to seize Paddington for her collection. Meanwhile, head over to Empire’s celebration of Classic Kids TV Shows That Still Rock Our World for a refresher on some of the old marmalade muncher’s scraps.
Paddington, the furry blighter, will be turning up in our cinema on November 28.
