The UK’s most beloved bear, PADDINGTON, is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on 23 March 2015 – and to celebrate – we have three merchandise packs up for grabs, which includes a Blu-ray, lunch bag, water bottle, luggage tag, stickers and balloons!

PADDINGTON is the magical adventure of a polite young Peruvian bear, who travels to London in search of a home.  Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, it seems that city life is not all he imagined- until he meets the Brown family, who kindly offer him a place to stay.  But little do the Browns realise just how much chaos one small bear can cause- and they soon discover that their lives will never be the same again.

Based on the best-selling series by British author Michael Bond, PADDINGTON brings together an all-star cast, with Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) and Sally Hawkins (Made in Dagenham) as Mr. & Mrs. Brown, Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge) as the evil taxidermist, Julie Walters (Billy Elliot) as Mrs. Bird the housekeeper, Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter) as Mr. Gruber the owner of the antiques shop, Peter Capaldi (Dr. Who) as the Browns' neighbour, Mr. Curry, and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington.

Jason Best

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
