If you saw Paddington 1 and really enjoyed it then with Paddington 2, you are in for a super treat. In my opinion, Paddington 2 is even better than the first and it really does not disappoint. There were bucket loads of laugh out loud moments which had the kids in stitches. We all really enjoyed this movie. I’ve seen it twice and genuinely, even as an adult, I already can’t wait to watch it again already!
STUDIOCANAL is pleased to announce that the BAFTA nominated hit ‘family film of the year’ Paddington 2 will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD + Blu-ray from 12th March 2018.
To celebrate its release, Guilty Mother was invited to a special screening of Paddington 2 at The Soho Hotel in London, part of Firmdale Hotels. Nestled in Richmond Mews, The Soho Hotel has a state of the art screening room with 100 seats. They provide high quality projection for private screenings. How can we resist the kind invitation? Especially as we were told that marmalade sandwiches would be on the menu and that Paddington would be there in person! The kids were thrilled.
The anticipated sequel to the family film finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community. The loveable, polite bear spreads kindness wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.
Hugh Grant’s role as Phoenix Buchanan is brilliantly funny. There is a hilarious sight of Hugh Grant dressed as a dog and sampling dog-food as stardom has taken abit of a downturn for Phoenix Buchanan. It's great to see Hugh Grant not taking himself too seriously and he plays this character really well. This is without doubt, Paddington’s biggest adventure yet! Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson join the all-star returning cast of Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw as the voice of the beloved bear.
This deliciously funny and heartwarming tale of Paddington will leave you in stitches of laughter and tears of joy. It definitely pulls on the heartstrings with tales of family and friendship at its heart.
