A preview trailer has been released of the forthcoming Paddington Bear movie, with some lovely — and suspiciously clean footage of Paddington Station.

Not sure if I should like this or not — generally turning a much loved children’s character over to the CGI wizards at Hollywood usually ends up an awful mess.

However, the film also seems to be set in modern day London, which is probably good for the London tourist board, but it does lack the squeal-out-loud-in-delight opportunity of seeing a steam train arriving in Paddington Station.

And frankly, in these modern times, an unattended bag left like that in the middle of a train station is likely to be blown up by the bomb squad.

Paddington Bear — splattered everywhere.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
