The iconic Paddington Bear comes to life in new film trailer as he wreaks havoc around the home of Hugh Bonneville's Mr Brown

By Daily Mail Reporter

The first full length trailer of the upcoming Paddington movie has been released online.

Marking the big screen debut of the iconic character, the new clip reveals just how much havoc a bear from darkest Peru can cause in London.

Hilarious scenes show Paddington in the home of Mr and Mrs Brown and he struggles to understand how to work bathroom appliances which leads to a fair bit of chaos in the normally pristine abode.

As Paddington makes a mess upstairs, Mr Brown – played by Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville – is on the phone attempting to get extra insurance so Paddington’s stay is fully covered.

 

The next clip shows Paddington getting to grips with public transport as he draws attention from passers-by who are understandably shocked to see a bear walking around town.

The film, made by the producer of Harry Potter and Gravity, sees him dispatched from his native jungle by his aunt Lucy following an earthquake.

He is smuggled aboard a boat to England and named after the London station where he is later found.

His misadventures with his adopted Brown family see him trying to evade a sinister taxidermist who has her evil eye on him.

Voiced by Colin Firth, Paddington also appear alongside Nicole Kidman, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins and Matt Lucas.

Stills from the film see the character, created by Michael Bond for a series of books, pictured outside Buckingham Palace looking far more ursine than the cuddly version who enchanted 1970s audiences on the BBC.

However, the marmalade-loving creature retains his familiar duffel coat and floppy hat in the movie, which is set to be released in November.

Fans of the anticipated film couldn’t help but notice that the beloved bear bears a rather striking resemblance to another popular animal character that has featured heavily on screens in recent years.

Idling outside Buckingham Palace, the loveable character looks very similar to Russian meerkat Aleksandr - a character that has worked its way into public consciousness through a series of car insurance ads.

A mechanical head was created to shoot scenes for the upcoming film, however the title role will mostly be computer generated.

Firth recently said of his role in the film: ‘Paddington will be computer generated, and I will speak his lines with, I suspect, a slight Peruvian flavour.

'Every other character in the film will be real, live, human beings.'

'Because Paddington is digitally created I’m spared having to over-indulge in marmalade sandwiches,’ he joked, referring to Paddington’s habit of keeping a stash of sarnies under his hat for emergencies.

Also speaking of her decision to appear in the film, Kidman said: ‘My agent called and said: 'We’ve got this offer from London for you to be in a film about a Paddington Bear.' And I said: 'You mean the Paddington Bear?'

‘I was read the stories when I was little and I grew up with Paddington. I know all about his adventures and what mischief he got up to.’

Paddington books have been translated into 30 languages across 70 titles and sold more than 30million copies worldwide.

The film is set for release on November 28.

Everyone moaning about him not looking like Paddington get a grip. He looks different granted but at least they are resurrecting this little one into the minds of kids and us adults so we start to read the books again. Loved Paddington when I was a kid. I actually have a stuffed Paddington in raincoat and I am 43 years old

Why have they made Paddington look like a seedy crack dealer, who sometimes uses his own product? He is thirty pounds underweight and just bad looking - he looks dirty!

Iconic, Iconic, Iconic! What is with that word? It is overused in the U.S. and the U.K. The Concise Oxford Dictionary has the meaning as: following a conventional type. How does that apply here pray tell? In the U.S. it is used to describe one-of-a-kind architecture and all and anything becomes iconic. In San Diego the brochure for the Mozart Festival states "iconic and innovative". If one were to ask the reporters the meaning of the word how many could answer correctly? Like the word 'gravitas' a few years back where every news article included the word constantly, until it was realized that it showed up reporters' laziness in reporting.

Iconic, Iconic, Iconic! What is it with that overused and incorrectly used word, both in the U.S. and U.K.? The Concise Oxford Dictionary states the meaning as: "following a conventional type". Pray tell how does that apply here? It has been overused to describe one-of-a-kind architecture where it does not apply and hardly a sentence is written without 'iconic' somewhere within. As with the word "gravitas" which was used by every news writer in the U.S. for a period of time (there are few, if any, journalists left these days) it just proved their laziness by copying others.

He doesn't look like the iconic Paddington Bear that we know and love ... but hope the film is fun.

It looks fun. It looks a fun film about a mischievous bear. But that is NOT Paddington. And when you've quite finished interefering with my childhood, I'll be over here comfort eating a marmalade sandwich.
