In what will go down as the most charming trailer of the year, this new look at Paul King’s Paddington 2 delivers a hot air balloon over London, Hugh Grant recreating a moment from The Shining, a delightful call back to the paper cut out past of our ursine Peruvian and so much more. It’s proper laugh out loud funny too – stick that on your poster.
Joining the cast are a sartorially bizarre Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson who have pivotal roles along with the returning Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. Here are the studio-approved descriptions of the new players in this tale of Peruvian immigrance.
Hugh Grant plays Windsor Gardens’ local celebrity, PHOENIX BUCHANAN, a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years.
Brendan Gleeson plays “KNUCKLES” MCGINTY, a notorious safe-cracker and legendary strongman who becomes an unexpected new ally for Paddington.
Here’s the new trailer!
Paddington 2 will be out in UK cinemas on November 10th.
