A young bear originally from Peru with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington station, he begins to realise that city life is not all he had imagined. This is until he meets the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck—"Please look after this bear"—and offer him a temporary haven.
The film was first announced in 2007 with David Heyman producing and Hamish McColl writing the screenplay. No further development was made until 2013, when filming began and Heyman announced the casting of Colin Firth as Paddington. Principal photography and production began on 13 September 2013. In June 2014, after principal photography had wrapped, Firth voluntarily dropped out of the film after the studio decided his voice was not suitable for Paddington. The role was recast the following month, with Ben Whishaw signing on to play the lead.
Paddington was created using a combination of computer-generated imagery and animatronics. Nick Urata will compose the film's soundtrack. With an estimated budget of $50 million, Paddington is the most expensive film produced by the French production company StudioCanal.
The film is scheduled to be released on 28 November 2014 in the United Kingdom, and on 16 January 2015 in the United States.
In November 2014 the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), gave the film a PG certificate for its UK release and advised parents that the film contained "dangerous behaviour, mild threat, mild sex references, [and] mild bad language". Paul King, the film's director, told BBC reporter Tim Muffett: "I'm not surprised about that [the PG certificate] but I don't think it's a PG for sexiness. That I would find very odd". Paddington’s creator, Michael Bond, said he was "totally amazed" at the BBFC's advice. After the film's distributor challenged the certification, the BBFC revised the wording of its parental guidance, replacing "mild sex references" with "innuendo". It also further qualified the "mild bad language" as "infrequent", saying it referred to "a single mumbled use of 'bloody'."
Early reviews for Paddington are positive. Guy Lodge of Variety praised it for "honouring the everyday quirks of Bond's stories, while subtly updating their middle-class London milieu". Rotten Tomatoes sampled five reviewers and judged 100% of the reviews to be positive. On Metacritic the film has a score of 68 out of 100, based on 4 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews" from critics.
