Trailer Park: Paddington 2

Three years ago a live action adaptation of Paddington Bear reached the big screen, and despite a rather rocky ad campaign, it became a modest success and, as it turns out, it was enough to spawn a sequel. I remember those early commercials and trailers and how they focused on the stupid and the slapstick. I remember actually dreading sitting through it. Fortunately, the movie turned out to be really good and really sweet and just what family entertainment needed. Now, here I am hoping that this second go around delivers the goods and lives up to its predecessor. Get ready for Paddington 2.

It looks like the cast has all returned to the fold with Ben Whisaw voicing the lovable bear, Michael Gambon and Imelda Staunton as his aunt and uncle, and Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville as his adoptive family. This outing finds Paddington happily living with the Browns, and following his antics as he takes jobs to buy his aunt a birthday gift. I am actually looking forward to this.
