The New Paddington Bear Looks More Than a Little Bit Creepy

So, we’re all excited about the fact that there’s going to be a Paddington Bear movie, yeah?

But, really, how could you not be? Iconic children’s character has his own film, in which he is voiced by everyone’s dream man Colin Firth and where he stars opposite the likes of Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville. Sally Hawkins, Peter Capaldi and Jim Broadbent.

For those that don’t know, Paddington’s story originally began as a book series by Michael Bond, the first of which was released in 1958. His story goes like this: A small bear is found by a family at Paddington Station in London. Named for the station in which he was discovered, he’s a very polite bear from Darkest Peru who comes equipped with that amazing red hat and a dark blue duffle overcoat to which is attached the label “Please look after this bear, thank you.” Paddington is adopted by a nice family named the Browns, and they feed him marmalade sandwiches and deal with his tendency to make messes everywhere.

But apparently what happens after that – at least according to this trailer - is that Paddington grows up to be a creepy serial killer. Okay, that’s probably not true, but man, it kind of looks like it might be.

The highly anticipated second installment in The Hobbit trilogy, subtitled The Desolation of Smaug, is due to hit theaters this December and excitement levels are rising among fans everywhere.

Director Peter Jackson hosted a worldwide Hobbit fan event that spanned several countries this week – it included in-person events in New York, London, Los Angeles and Wellington, New Zeland, all hooked together by a live-stream that was broadcast to cinemas and computers around the world. The event featured a Q&A with many of the film’s stars, including Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Andy Serkis, Lee Pace, Luke Evans and Jackson himself.

But, despite how lovely it is to hear the actors share behind-the-scenes stories, the most exciting thing revealed during the fan event was a brand new, extended sneak peek trailer.

Which you should stop what you are doing and watch right now. Seriously. It's that good.

The second installment in director Peter Jackson’s massive The Hobbit trilogy, subtitled The Desolation of Smaug, is due to hit theaters this December and fans everywhere have been beside themselves with excitement – well, since basically last December when An Unexpected Journey premiered – to see Tolkien’s story famous continue.

And also most of them (you? us? everyone?) are sort of (really) looking forward to seeing finally that titular dragon that our hero Bilbo Baggins has to face off with. Luckily, you get a little bit of your wish today.

Watch the newest trailer for the film below.

Watch - First Trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!

The trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the second installment of Peter Jackon’s rather immense trilogy of films based on the beloved J.R.R. Tolkien novel, has been officially been released – and yes, you finally get to see the dragon, along with what appears to be half the working actor population of England.

When last we left our heroes in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, our intrepid crew comprised of dwarves, a wizard and a hobbit hadn’t even made it to the Lonely Mountain yet. So there’s still a lot to cover – and this trailer is packed full of all sorts of goodies sure to make Tolkien lovers swoon worldwide.

Back for another go-round are stars Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner, Lee Pace, Sylvester McCoy, James Nesbitt, Peter Hambleton and many more.

The new trailer also gives us our first looks at Luke Evans’ Bard the Bowman, Evangeline Lily’s elf warrior princess Tauriel, and the return of a familiar face as Orlando Bloom puts the blonde Legolas wig on once again. (And seriously looks as though he has not aged at all. How?) And of course, Freeman’s Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch also shows up for the final shot – as a giant, scaly reptile that sleeps on top of a Scrooge McDuck-style pile of gold. (Cumberbatch is the voice of Smaug, but also provided the motion capture used for the dragon’s animation, much as Andy Serkis did with Gollum.)

Basically, it looks awesome.

Watch the Trailer for The World’s End with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Martin Freeman

The US trailer for The World's End final installment in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto trilogy has arrived. Co-written with star Simon Pegg, the follow-up to popular comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz is packed with notable British talent and dry humor, just like its predecessors. Pegg is reunited with frequent co-star Nick Frost and joined by a few other familiar faces, including Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike.

The story focuses on Gary King (played by Pegg), a 40 year old man who still isn’t quite over his teenage years. He recruits four of his childhood friends to re-attempt a marathon pub crawl from their youth, ending at the fabled World’s End pub. Of course, nothing goes as planned and the gang experiences that all-too familiar scenario of returning to your hometown only to find that it seems as though everything has changed without you. In this case, however, the reason for that feeling is because an army of robots has taken over the town’s residents, but whatever. Suddenly our pub crawlers are mankind’s only hope for survival and it’s suddenly more important that they make it to the World’s End than ever.

In short: This movie looks like a blast. (Though you probably already knew that if you’ve watched either Hot Fuzz or Shaun of the Dead.) Take a look at the trailer below.

Brand New Hobbit Trailer Shows Off Lighter Tone, More Characters and a Game of Riddles

The latest trailer for the first installment in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy has arrived and it is simply stunning! Our second full look at the festival of British acting talent known as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey gives us lots of new footage, including trolls, Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy’s Radagast the Brown, a bunny sled, dwarf shenanigans, stone giants, wargs, Cate Blanchett’s Galadriel, Hugh Weaving’s Lord Elrond, a game of riddles between Bilbo and Gollum and lots, lots more.

While the film's first trailer was very heavy on the dark, theatrical feel - complete with mournful song performed by star Richard Armitage– the second manages to retain a similar epic sensibility, while conveying more of the lightness and humor of the Hobbit story. (Technically, it is a children’s book, after all.) Plus, we get to hear quite a bit of dialogue here, especially as compared to the first trailer, which lets this one be a bit more straightforward in terms of telling new fans what the story's all about.

Click through and give it a look for yourself – as well as the four additional bonus endings which were also released on the official site today. It’s enough new footage to make any hardcore Hobbit fan excited.

Watch the First Trailer for Upcoming James Bond Movie, Skyfall

When you think of Great Britain, a few iconic images, people and places tend to come to mind instantly – and James Bond is probably one of them. Even people who don’t like spy movies tend to enjoy Bond films – the cars, guns and gadgets are kind of hard to resist. Plus, I have to respect any franchise that’s capable of reinventing itself so many times over so many years (it’s the Whovian in me, I suppose). Skyfall will be the twenty-third installment in the Bond franchise, with star Daniel Craig returning for a third go as the famous spy.

Honestly, I’m really more of a Sean Connery-as-Bond kind of girl, if I had to pick just one, but it must be said that Craig really is a fabulous Bond too. Skyfall also has an all-star supporting cast, including Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Helen McCrory, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw. Click through for a look at the film’s first teaser trailer, which will probably get you pretty excited for this even if you thought previous effort Quantum of Solace was a hot mess.
