PADDINGTON 2 finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's hundredth 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... Helmed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King, PADDINGTON 2 is co-produced by multi award-winning David Heyman / Heyday Films (producer of all eight of the HARRY POTTER films, GRAVITY, THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM) and StudioCanal, who will also distribute in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. PADDINGTON is based on the best-selling and internationally adored series of children's stories by British author Michael Bond, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, been translated into over 40 languages and captured the imagination of children and adults around the globe.
Opens this week. Currently 100% on RT: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/paddington_2

Not even close. Jumanji is said to be #1. http://deadline.com/2018/01/the-comm...ce-1202241724/

Fixed.

The first one got great reviews too, but underperformed similarly in the US. Kids don't care about reviews. They don't know Paddington and it isn't fondly remembered by most parents in the US either, so there's no nostalgia factor to pump up the box office like there is with something like say Smurfs or Scooby Doo.

For what it's worth, I took my kids to see it and I thought it was pretty great, but the theater wasn't even close to full.

A phenomenal movie. I thought the first movie was merely good but this sequel is leagues better imho.

It’s The Godfather 2 or The Road Warrior of talking bear movies.

I simply adored the first movie, and likewise the sequel has so much charm, excitement and visual style it won me over as well

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Saw this yesterday when my kids had off and we were the only people in the theater, I enjoyed it though. However, it wasn't like my kids were asking for Paddington stuff after the movie or wanting to see the original again on Netflix when we got home so I can see why it isn't a hit. The kids will watch it and will laugh but the excitement level isn't there.

It was ok but I liked the original better

Spoiler:
Paddington in jail for most of the movie ruined it though Gleesan was great.

My wife bawled like a baby in parts of 1 and 2. I seriously doubt she’ll watch a third if they make one....

Seeing Paddington in danger is just too much for her, although she had no issues sitting through Infinity War. Go figure...

I keep seeing this on various Top 10 lists for the year. Never saw the first. I see this one is on HBO now. I guess if I can find the first streaming somewhere I'll check it out.

The first movie is on Tubi.tv. free and legal streaming site with apps. I watched it there the other day.

It also streamed with no commercials, which was a surprise. I was expecting it to have commercial breaks. But I created an account with them and linked it to the app.

I watched a movie on Tubi once. I think I got 1 commercial about 15 minutes into the movie and the rest of the movie played without interruption.

Blind buy stocking stuffer for the kids, never saw either. We all really liked it. Very funny, with lots of heart.
