Over the holiday weekend, Warner Bros. released a delightfully sweet new trailer for Paul King’s upcoming sequel Paddington 2 starring Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, and featuring the voice of Ben Whishaw.

Paddington 2 continues the story of the adorable titular bear as he finds himself 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. However, when a unique pop-up book that Paddington was planning on gifting to his Aunt Lucy for her hundredth birthday goes missing, he embarks on a journey to unmask the thief with the help of the Browns.

Written by King and Simon Farnaby, based on the best-selling books by Michael Bond, Paddington 2 looks like a charming little family movie, to say the least, having already earned $95 million worldwide since opening in theaters overseas just a few months ago and an impressive 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Paddington 2 will hit U.S. theaters on January 12.

WARNER BROS.

Warner Bros. has released the long-awaited first trailer for Aquaman, the highly anticipated next chapter in the DC Extended Universe from director James Wan starring Jason Momoa as the titular superhero, and it appears to be exactly the kind of film the franchise needs right now.

Described as an “action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas,” Aquaman reveals the origin of the half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry (Momoa) and takes him on the journey of a lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be a king.

Wan directed Aquaman from a screenplay written by David Leslie Johnson/McGoldrick and Will Beall, based on a story created by Geoff Johns, Wan, and Beall. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, and Nicole Kidman as Arthur’s mother.

“I wanted to create a superhero film that we’ve never quite seen before,” James Wan told the audience during the Aquaman panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon. “I wanted our film to be more unique. So my movie plays more like a science fiction fantasy film than a traditional superhero movie.”

Aquaman is set to hit theaters on December 21. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film in the embedded player below.
