Reader, have you ever found yourself watching an action-filled superhero flick, a heart-pounding thriller, or a tense-Oscar worthy drama and felt like something was just … missing? Amid the action, the stunts, the violent finales, and the often very bad CGI work (looking at you, Dwayne Johnson's Scorpion King) the film in question – whether The Wolf of Wall Street or Joker, could undoubtedly benefit from an appearance from a marmalade-loving, raincoat-clad British bear? 

Well folks, thanks to one determined Redditor, it seems our secret wish has become a reality. Last month, u/JaytheChou took the popular, Jared-Leto-Joker-as-Jesus clad subreddit, r/moviecirclejerk by storm, launching a new, self-explanatory series entitled “I photoshop Paddington into another movie every day until I forget." Apparently having not forgotten his noble directive over the past 27 days, the beloved bear, fresh off of his stint in the slammer, has graced the film forum as a starring presence in several highly-acclaimed flicks, including horror staples like Midsommar

Parasite

… and The Shining

… Sci-fi hits like to Godzilla v. Kong

Star Wars episode IV

…  2001: A Space Odyssey

Jurassic Park

… and of course, 2021's most controversial film, Space Jam … 

… pretty much …

…every superhero movie/IP …

… In the Marvel and DC extended universes … 

… As well as gritty, modern dramas like Marriage Story

Joker … 

… and The Wolf of Wall Street, raising the question if it was actually Paddington, not Matthew McConaughey, behind the film's primarl, bro-y money chant. 

 

So folks, although Paddington may be a beloved children's character, his acting range is apparently akin to that of several acclaimed performers, tackling intense, action-packed scenes with grace and adorableness. Please look after this bear ... and get him an Oscar, stat.
