Paddington, a bear from Peru who now lives in London with the Brown family, is living a happy life. However, things go very wrong when a new neighbor's self-centeredness and criminal ways wind up with Paddington behind bars.
The films starts with Paddington wanting to get his Aunt Lucy (Imelda Staunton) in Peru a very special gift for her fast-approaching 100th birthday. He spots a rare, beautifully detailed pop-up book of London at the local antique shop and takes on a variety of odd jobs, inclucing window washing and cutting hair in a barbershop, in order to earn enough money to buy the book and send it to her.
Unfortunately, Paddington’s new neighbor, has-been stage actor Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant), also wants the book, because he believes if he has it in his possession, he can find a secret treasure. He steals the book, but frames Paddington, who is arrested and taken to prison, where he makes friends with the guards and his fellow inmates, because, as Henry says, "Paddington looks for the good in all of us, and somehow he finds it.”
When 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) is kidnapped in Rome in 1973, his mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) desperately tries to convince his miserly billionaire grandfather Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer), the richest man in the world, to pay the ransom of $17 million. However, Getty refuses to pay any ransom at all, leaving Gail in a panic and her son in a very desperate situation.
Getty's employee Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg) tries to help Gail get her son back, but without Getty Sr.'s help, they're running out of time.
Based on the book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty by John Pearson.
When the Ebbing, Missouri Police Department is unable to solve her daughter Angela's murder, tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) decides to make a bold move. She rents three billboards leading into the town and paints controversial messages on them pointing a finger at police chief William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) ineptness.
The billboards seem to get under the skin of several of the town's residents, but Mildred is plenty capable of taking them on. When the chief's second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.
A lonely, mute cleaner named Eliza (Sally Hawkins) has few friends, other than her co-worker, Zelda (Octavia Spencer). They both work in a hidden, high-security government laboratory.

She develops a relationship with the creature, who was captured in the Amazon before being brought to the laboratory for experimentation. When she discovers that the scientists, including Strickland (Michael Shannon), plan to kill him in order to study him, she decides it's time to help her new friend escape.
