The Weinstein Company’s giving us our first look at Nicole Kidman in the family-friendly comedy movie Paddington. Kidman plays a villain in the film based on the popular books by Michael Bond and produced by Harry Potter‘s David Heyman. The voice of the film’s star, Paddington Bear, was recently recast, with Ben Whishaw taking over for Colin Firth.
Paddington opens in theaters on December 25, 2014.
Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.
