Bridget Jones’s Baby – Bridget’s Bridgisms Featurette

Renee Zellweger returns to the role of Bridget Jones this September as she stars in Bridget Jones’s Baby.

This is the first time that we have seen the Oscar-winning actress take on this role since Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason back in 2004.

In this new featurette we get ourselves reacquainted with this much-loved character:

Zellweger reunites with Colin Firth, Jim Broadbent and Gemma Jones, while Patrick Dempsey and Emma Thompson are the big new additions to the cast list.

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 released 16th September.

But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta.

Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey ( Theron) and Beetle (McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known.

With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Mara) to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family and fulfill his heroic destiny.
