----------------------

PADDINGTON is the first film adaptation of author Michael Bond's beloved long-running series of children's books that first debuted in 1958.   The movie is produced by David Heyman who produced all 8 HARRY POTTER films

PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home.  Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.  The film features an entirely computer-generated bear who interacts with a cast of esteemed actors.

PADDINGTON is directed by Paul King and stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington.
