I’m pretty sure that there’s nothing I can say hear that is going to sway your opinion one way or another when it comes to a new Bridget Jones movie. You’ve either already bought into the romantic misadventures of Rene Zellweger’s lovable unlucky-in-love lass and thus are definitely going to see this third film, or not. In my wife’s case, she definitely falls into the former camp. Which of course means that I also fall into the former camp purely by association. Marital osmosis, I call it.
If you’re in the “or not” group, chances are you probably never even clicked on this link to begin with and are just checking out that latest Jason Statham movie again. For the rest of you, click play below on a brand new trailer which promises more of that Bridget Jones kookiness you love, but now with added McDreamy.
Oscar® winners Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth are joined by Patrick Dempsey for the next chapter of the world’s favorite singleton in Bridget Jones’s Baby. Directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones’s Diary), the new film in the beloved comedy series based on creator Helen Fielding’s heroine finds Bridget unexpectedly expecting.
After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’s (Zellweger) “happily ever after” hasn’t quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?
Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch…she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
Bridget Jones’s Baby stars the aforementioned Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey, Emma Thompson and Jamie Callis. It is scheduled for release on 17 September.
