Bridget Jones’s Baby (2016) — in cinemas Friday, Sept. 16

The much-anticipated third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise will reunite Renee Zellweger and original installment helmer Maguire with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth with Patrick Dempsey on board as a new love interest. Bridget is back and (thankfully) a lot closer to the charmingly awkward Bridget we met in the first movie. Firth and Dempsey are both great in their roles, and Emma Thompson is a genius scene-stealer as usual.
After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones’ (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 per cent sure of the identity of her baby’s father. The plot deals with Bridget’s uncertainty over whether the father of her baby is longterm love-turned-ex Mark Darcy or newcomer Qwant.
