LONDON, Nov 7 — Stars including Hugh Grant, Julie Walters and Ben Whishaw hit the red carpet for the world premiere of Paddington 2 on Sunday (November 5).

The film’s plot centres on Paddington Bear working odd jobs so he can buy his Aunt Lucy the perfect 100th birthday gift, but when the present he had in mind is stolen he finds himself in trouble.

In the sequel, actor Hugh Grant plays villain Phoenix Buchanan who is described as a washed-up narcissistic actor. Paddington 2 is in UK cinemas November 10. — Reuters
