Trailer: Paddington

PaddingtonWell, we’ve finally got a full trailer for the new Paddington movie, set to hit theaters at Christmas. But I’m disappointed to see that despite the classic source material and amazing cast – Colin Firth! Hugh Bonneville! Nicole Kidman! Sally Hawkins! Peter Capaldi! Julie Walters! – this looks . . . kind of terrible. Sigh.

Trailer: Great Expectations

Great ExpectationsWhoa, this new adaptations of Dickens’s Great Expectations looks great. The star-studded cast includes Jeremy Irvine (and his little brother Toby playing Young Pip!), Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Holliday Grainger, Ralph Fiennes, Sally Hawkins, and more. The adaptation was written by David Nicholls; Mike Newell directs. The movie will be in theaters later this fall.
