Everyone’s favorite marmalade-sandwich eating bear Paddington will be back next year, and the film’s first trailer shows plenty of the character’s slapstick and fun adventures, plus a couple of newcomers Grant and Brendan Gleeson joining the fun.
Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, The Lobster) who voiced Paddington in the 2014 original is back for the sequel. “Paddington 2” also stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi.
“Paddington” was a surprise critical and commercial hit, grossing $268 million worldwide, with director Paul King getting nominations in BAFTA Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as Best British Film with producer David Heyman.
Paddington 2 is scheduled for a Jan. 12, 2018 release by The Weinstein Company. See trailer below.
