David Walliams will attend a special screening of his new BBC adaptation at the BFI Southbank on December 14.

The one-off special is based on Walliams’ book The Boy in the Dress.

It tells the story of 12-year-old Dennis who is ordinary boy, who lives in an ordinary town – but he feels different.

A chance view of a fashion magazine introduces him to a whole new world of colour and creativity, but can a boy wear a dress, and what will the Headmaster, his Dad, and his friends think if they find out?

The cast includes Jennifer Saunders, Tim McInnerny, Meera Syal, James Buckley, David Walliams and Kate Moss.

New Paddington posters

Two brand new character posters for Paddington have been released today.

I absolutely love this one of Peter Capaldi as Paddington’s grumpy neighbour Mr Curry – he couldn’t look less Doctorish if he tried!

There’s also a poster for Nicole Kidman’s character Millicent who is expected to be the film’s villain, Milicent.

My excitement just keeps growing…

Martin Freeman does the Taliban Shuffle

Martin Freeman is in talks to co-star alongside Tina Fey in the comedy Taliban Shuffle.

The film stars Fey as real life journalist Kim Barker who Is posted to Kabul, and follows her attempts to do her job whilst also dealing with bouts of violence and what’s described “the promiscuous war-correspondent culture”.

Freeman will play Fey’s unexpected love interest, a dedicated Scottish photojournalist. Margot Robbie is expected to play one of Fey’s rivals.

It’ll be great to see Martin back in comedy, it’s been a while since he exercised his comedic chops what with Fargo, The Hobbit, Richard III and Sherlock!

Hands up, who else is excited to see Paddington?

The reviews have started trickling out and mostly they appear to be very positive.

I really can’t wait to see it now – it feels like I’ve been talking about for ages.

To whet all our appetites here’s a brand new clip of Paddington meeting the Brown family for the first time. Watch out for the lovely Lost And Found moment.

Have you seen the trailer for the new Peanuts Movie?

I love Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang and I’m really looking forward to seeing them on the big screen next year.

I was a bit worried about the use of 3D and CGI but I think the computer animation looks great so far – I just hope it remains at such a high level for the final film.

Now we just have to wait another 12 months to see it.
