The Paddington 2 marketing train is quickly speeding up for it’s November release with a new set of posters. Yesterday we met all the main characters in their own individual posters, today Studiocanal sent us even more with a focus on one character.
Phoenix Buchanan, played by the brilliantly talented Hugh Grant.The posters feature his character Phoenix Buchanan in a selection of his many costumes, taken from his time on stage in London’s West End. He has now moved into a home near Paddington in Windsor Gardens to the delight of many of the residents. We have mentioned before he’s a character with many disguises, he is the villain of Paddington 2 and you can’t be a baddie without those costumes!
The much-anticipated sequel to the worldwide hit family film 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 100th 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…
