Paddington, a new live-action adaption of the much-loved Michael Bond book, is in cinemas next week and we have a family ticket for four plus a toy Paddington bear to be won, writes Graham Walker.
The Star has teamed up for this competition with Vue Cinema at Sheffield’s Meadowhall, and the film’s distributors, Studio Canal.
Produced by the same team behind Harry Potter, Paddington is set to win over a new generation of fans.
The film, out Friday, November 28, features the talents of Nicole Kidman, Julie Walters Peter Capaldi, Sally Hawkins and Matt Lucas.
It tells the story of Paddington, the bear, who lives deep in the depths of the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy. When their home is suddenly wiped out by a devastating earthquake, Paddington’s Aunt decides to ship him off to London – somewhere an English explorer she once met had always recommended as a place of opportunity.
When Paddington finally arrives at a London train station, lost and alone, with only a briefcase and a label round his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you’, he begins to wonder if England is such a great place after all.
The loveable bear’s luck soon changes, when he is taken in by the Brown family, who promise him a temporary home. Before long, they begin to realise living with a bear doesn’t come without its problems, and trouble and chaos ensues.
Paddington decides to seek out the British explorer who his dear Aunt was so fond of, but first he must contend with an evil taxidermist who has sinister plans for Paddington’s future.
