Paddington Plots A Jailbreak In New Paddington 2 Trailer

by Erik Amaya

 

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming US release of Paddington 2, the sequel to the delightful Paddington. But this time around, the marmalade-loving bear’s attempt to buy a gift for his aunt leads him to the big house, where he and his new jailbird friends plot an intricate escape.

Unlike most family film trailers, Paddington 2 has a surprising number of awards, four star reviews and other plaudits thanks to it being released internationally months ago. Its original US distributor, the Weinstein Company, fell into disrepute — to literally say the the least — delaying its release as a new distributor came onto the scene. Warner Bros. stepped in and thanks to them, fans of Paddington will soon enjoy another adventure that, if the trailer is to be believed, is somehow better than the first. A particularly tall claim considering how much people loved the original film.

Paddington comes to theaters on January 12th.
