Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer: Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey face off

Posted on

Bridget Jones’s Baby‘s latest trailer finds our titular British heroine once again torn between two men, but this time, instead of just vying for her affections, they’re also competing to be the father of her baby.

The third film in the series picks up 12 years after The Edge of Reason, where Bridget (Renee Zellweger) has broken things off with her longtime flame Mark Darcy (a returning Colin Firth) and dedicated her life to her journalism career. Newly single, she soon hits it off with a wealthy American named Jack (Patrick Dempsey), but after steamy encounters with both Mark and Jack, Bridget finds herself with a baby on board — and no clue about which man is the father.

The result is an escalating competition between Mark and Jack, as they square off against each other and both insist that they’re the father. As Bridget’s snarky OB-GYN, played by Emma Thompson, puts it: “It’s like the final of The X Factor. Dial 01 if you want it to be Mark and 02 if you want it to be Jack!”
