It's sad to say, but I used to worship the sun growing up. Now I fear it. One too many sunburns as a kid while playing ball or going to the beach with friends made me a prime candidate for a dermatological intervention later in life. It only took three or four skin biopsies for me to finally realize how much damage I had done to myself as a teen and that there were better ways of getting vitamin D than soaking in rays.

Now in theatres, 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 Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home.
