The Weinstein Company has released a new Paddington image from director Paul King’s (The Mighty Boosh) upcoming film about the lovable bear.  The story centers on said bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who is lost at Paddington Station in London, adopted by a kind family, and then sets out in search of an explorer who inspired his aunt years before.  The first trailer revealed the tomfoolery that ensues, and while the pic had a bit of a creative shakeup when Colin Firth opted to step down from main voicing duties, I still remain hopeful that Paddington will be an adorable family friendly adventure comedy.  Today’s new image reveals Nicole Kidman’s character, who happens to be the antagonist of the pic—a sinister, seductive taxidermist.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Paddington image.  The live-action cast also includes Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, and Peter CapaldiPaddington opens in theaters on December 25th.

The image was first revealed on the official Paddington Twitter.

Here’s the official synopsis for Paddington:

Adapted from Michael Bond’s beloved books, Paddington follows the comic misadventures of a polite young bear with an endearing talent for comic chaos.

Paddington has grown up deep in the Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy who, inspired by a chance encounter with an English explorer, has raised her nephew to dream of an exciting life in London. When an earthquake destroys their home, Aunt Lucy decides to smuggle her young nephew on board a boat bound for England, in search of a better life. Arriving alone at Paddington Station, Paddington soon finds that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family, who find him with a label tied around his neck which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ They offer him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.

But when Paddington catches the eye of a sinister, seductive taxidermist, it isn’t long before his home – and very existence – is under threat …
