Paddington 2 Teaser Proves You Can Fit A Lot Impressive Actors Into A Tiny Trailer
by Erik Amaya
Now that Paddington 2 has a new distributor in the form of Warner Bros. Pictures, the studio has released a delightful teaser filled with cameos from just about every actor in the United Kingdom while poor Paddington tries to wash some windows.
In case you missed them, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, outgoing Doctor Who Peter Capaldi, The Shape of Water‘s Sally Hawkins, Julie Waters, and Jim Broadbent are all part of the film. The plot sees Paddington (voiced by Ben Whishaw) work a number of odd jobs — like window cleaning — to save money for a special birthday gift. But when the gift is stolen, Paddington is convicted of the crime and sent to prison.
This is still a children’s film, right?
The first film became a surprise critical darling a few years back and many cannot wait to see the follow-up, even though its original US distributor fell into, um, disrepute. Meanwhile, the film already opened in the UK and is reportedly as charming and gentle as the original.
Paddington 2 opens on January 12th.
