Michael Bond’s classic children’s book comes to life on the big screen.

Arriving in London from his native Peru with a ‘Please Look After This Bear’ label around his neck, our bewildered ursine friend is fortunately taken in by kindly Mr and Mrs Brown (Bonneville and Hawkins). Voiced by Ben Whishaw, and named after the railway station he arrived at, Paddington embarks on a series of bemused adventures as he searches for one of his Aunt Lucy’s (Imelda Staunton) friends and finds himself dodging a malicious taxidermist with an unnatural aversion to bears (Nicole Kidman).
