NEWS: Paddington The Movie

For Brits of a certain age, the announcement of a Paddington live-action movie will probably be equally greeted with whoops of delight and derision but for those unfamiliar with the character, Paddington is the name given to a small, orphaned bear from ''darkest Peru,'' adopted by a middle-class English family in Michael Bond's series of books (and in case you were wondering, he's named after the railway station where he was found.)

Adapted for television in a series of quirky animated shorts in the Seventies (which combined 3D, stop-frame animation with 2D, hand-drawn characters) before landing on US shores in the Eighties, Paddington is now set to make the transition to the big screen, as this poster shows. Quite how the movie adaptation will pan-out is anybody's guess, but we'll be interested in seeing if it ignites a new round of Paddington Fever when it lands in theaters in 2014.
