Renée Zellweger in Trailer for Unwanted Sequel 'Bridget Jones's Baby'
"For better or worse, fate has brought us together." Universal has debuted a trailer for Bridget Jones's Baby, a sequel to the smash hit Bridget Jones's Diary from 2001. Now 15 years later, Renée Zellweger returns to continue the story of Bridget Jones, and it looks so bad. Please don't see this film. In addition to Zellweger, the cast includes Patrick Dempsey, Emma Thompson (who co-wrote the script), Colin Firth, Shirley Henderson, Jim Broadbent, Sarah Solemani. Hollywood has reached a point where the only movies they're making are sequels, remakes, reboots, anything that can connect with a pre-existing property, and this is an example of them scraping the bottom of the barrel. No really, stay away from this.
Here's the official trailer for Sharon Maguire's Bridget Jones's Baby, from Universal's YouTube:
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 is directed by British filmmaker Sharon Maguire, from a screenplay written by Emma Thompson, Helen Fielding and Dan Mazer. Universal will release this starting September 16th.
