This weekend the wonderfully adorable (and just plain wonderful) "Paddington 2" arrives in theaters everywhere. A remarkable sequence to the equally delightful 2014 film "Paddington," the new film sees everyone's favorite bear (voiced once again by Ben Whishaw) winding up on the wrong side of the law and being sent away to prison (where he befriends Brendan Gleeson), while trying to clear his name and implicate the true villain (Hugh Grant). This is a movie that is sweet, charming, thoughtful and smart.
So you can imagine our thrill when we got to sit down with Grant, his costar Hugh Bonneville, and "Paddington 2" writer Simon Farnaby and director Paul King. What was on our mind? Why, their honest thoughts on marmalade, of course. We also wanted to see how many other pop culture bears they could name. The results leave something to be desired.
