Julie Walters plays crazy aunt Lucy
 perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.



'VICTORIA AND ABDUL' TRAILER
JUDI DENCH GOES ROYAL AGAIN
There is also a rather nice first trailer for September historical drama VICTORIA AND ABDUL in which Judi Dench plays one of English queens for the fourth or fifth time, methinks. Directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) it also stars Olivia Williams and Michael Gambon.
MOST UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIP
The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the
Judi Dench first played Victoria exactly 20 years ago in Mrs Brown
Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.

  3. Of course the mango is off! It had no chance to breathe in that tight hot box. Hmmph. White people. Victoria trailer looks interesting and touching. Though it is painting a brush over on the fact that being colonized by a foreign country isn't pretty.

    Paddington 2 looks absolutely darling! Saw the first in theaters and will do the same for this one.

    1. maybe it was just presented to her in that box, da royal style, you know, but I reckon it was impossible bringing mango all the way from one's colonial plantations to one's imperial palace on the other side of the world without freezers :)

  4. Allison loved the first Paddington. She went to the theater to see it with friends, so I missed watching it. I will have to catch up though so we can both see the sequel.
