The 'Paradise' singer has high praise for the Jack Black animated film.

Coldplay's Chris Martin has confessed he is a big fan of the movie Kung Fu Panda 2.

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' singer told The Sun that the characters help to teach lessons in turning negativity into positivity and relates the message to hardship his own band have faced.

He revealed: "In Kung Fu Panda 2 the baddie sends an evil force right into Po's head, but the lesson he learns is how to turn that force around and send it back twice as strong. It is a great way to deal with negativity. We are interested in turning negatives into positives.

"I feel like every kid is trying to get that at school. They take crap from people. We want them to take that as 'When people are mean to you, don’t let that distract you from your passion or vision'.

"In life it’s good to learn how to take negatives and turn them into positives. Every time something like that happens to us, we just flip it around. It is a very good film."

Meanwhile, the band have just finished shooting the music video for their new single 'Princess Of China' which features Rihanna and were pictured on the set with the Bajan star recently sporting geisha robes.
