There are a few movies I absolutely adore and Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason are two such movies, so I’m absolutely thrilled to see BRIDGET JONES’S BABY will be in theaters September 16!
One of my all-time favorite lines from Bridget is “It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.” It looks like she’s staying true to form in the new film where her life is on track, then bam! – a baby is on the way and she’s totally uncertain of which of the two men in her life are the father. I have no doubt hilarious and heartfelt mayhem will ensue as we follow Bridget along her next journey.
(I have to confess, I’m already routing for Mark Darcy!)
Take a peek at the all-new first preview:
ABOUT BRIDGET JONES’S BABY:
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.
The much-anticipated third installment of the Bridget Jones’s franchise welcomes fellow Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson to the cast. Longtime collaborators Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films produce alongside Debra Hayward. Universal Pictures will distribute Bridget Jones’s Baby in North America and select international territories.
Stay tuned! I’m sure we’ll have more coverage as the details of this awesome film unfolds!
