With another Christmas done and dusted you’re probably not all that interested in thinking or planning for next year’s right now. However, I may have something that will change your mind. We all know that Christmas film releases are a big deal, they are usually some of the most hyped films of the year and the ones most people are excited about and I’m sure 2014 will be no different, especially now that it has been confirmed that Paddington is set for a December 12, 2014 release. Yes, you read that right. Paddington, that beloved bear from our childhoods, is getting his very own feature film. And to celebrate, distributors TWC-Dimension films have released the official movie poster. Paddington Part live action, part CGI, the film may star Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington, but will also incorporate a little bit of Firth into the animation. “But the idea is that Paddington will have something of me in his DNA because I’m going to do some sessions wearing one of those helmets with cameras to capture my face muscles, and all that data will somehow be incorporated into Paddington,” Firth told the Daily Mail. Also starring in the film are Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville and Golden Globe nominee Sally Hawkins as Henry and Mary Brown, the humans that discover the bear in London’s Paddington station and bring him home to live with their family. Nicole Kidman plays Millicent, the evil taxidermist and the film’s villain. She shared her excitement about the role saying, “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.” Bringing the film to life will be the man behind all eight Harry Potter films, David Heyman, from a screenplay by Hamish McColl based on the popular children’s novels by Michael Bond.
