Striking while the iron is hot, The Weinstein Company has released the first full-length trailer for Paddington, which finds the iconic bear trying to avoid an evil museum taxidermist. Starring Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and the voice of Colin Firth as Paddington Bear, the classic children's novel comes alive on screen this Christmas.

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Colin Firth) 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.
