A lot of people are going to act like they didn’t see the enormous success of ‘American Sniper’ coming, but the signs were all there. On top of the promising limited release numbers, there was the awards buzz. On top of that, there were the names of director Clint Eastwood and star Bradley Cooper. On top of that, the subject matter of the film is inherently attractive to the same category of moviegoer that makes Christian-themed films into massive hits. ‘American Sniper’ had one doozy of a weekend, but it’s not that surprising.
There's something weird about this 'Paddington' trailer, right? Not the change in Paddington's voice from Colin Firth to Ben Whishaw, but like, Paddington is kind of an aggressive and obnoxious bear -- not like the pleasant little bear who unwittingly gets into trouble in the books we remember from our childhood. But these days what kid wants to watch a movie about an animated bear that's the equivalent to kiddie tea and snuggles and Ambien?
Paddington Bear has arrived, folks! While Seth MacFarlane is busy on the sequel to 'Ted,' bringing back his foul-mouthed cuddler to the big screen, the first 'Paddington' trailer debuted online to give fans a look at what a more family-friendly stuffed animal looks like.
Do you have a fond memory from your childhood that you want to see brought to the big screen? Don't fret...Hollywood is on it! As more and more studios and producers realize that nostalgia is a powerful motivation for audiences to rush to the theater, expect to see every toy, every game and ever character that you dug as a toddler resurrected for a new generation. The latest of these is Paddington Bear, whose film has a brand new poster.
