The First Bridget Jones’s Baby Trailer Is Here, and It Actually Looks Really Cute
The first trailer for the upcoming third installment in the Bridget Jones series, Bridget Jones's Baby, premiered this morning, and if I had any reservations about a threequel before, they're gone now. This movie actually looks really cute. In case you couldn't figure it out from the title, Bridget is pregnant, but she's not sure who the father is — her ex Mark Darcy (Colin Firth, duh) or a new guy played by Patrick Dempsey. I never thought I'd be so charmed by what is basically the plot of a Maury episode. Those British accents are magic, I tell you.
The movie looks to fit right in with the tone of the previous two movies. Bridget is still awkward and clumsy and single and fantasizing about her happily ever after. And now she's pregnant on top of it. So cue the added shenanigans, am I right? And boy will there be a lot of them. There's a congratulatory cake setting off the sprinklers, her mother asking in horror if she had a three-way, and OB/GYN Emma Thompson (sans dead fish) doing Bridget a favor that you would totally expect Bridget to ask.
We'll have to wait until the movie comes out this December to find out who the father is. But according to Renée Zellweger, even she doesn't know. They apparently filmed three different endings, and nobody will know which one is the real one until the movie premieres. Or maybe we can all just choose our own adventure. I mean, in that case it would be kind of pointless to even film more than one ending, because everyone would obviously choose the Mark Darcy one. Right, guys? We're all on the same page, aren't we? I mean, Patrick Dempsey seems nice, but COME ON NOW PEOPLE DON'T BE DAFT.
