I'm sure in the media recently you will have seen tonnes of coverage on the new Bridget Jone's
Baby Movie. We have a slightly different take for you today. We are going to delve into the movie's
trivia! Trivia is honestly, I believe, the best thing. Sure, you see the movie and you feel the way the
director wants you to feel. However, there is always something interesting about learning about the
things that they keep quiet, or that haven't made it into the media about your favourite movies.
So what is the storyline? Bridget's focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but theres one more issue ... she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father. Not ideal! In this 15 rated movie we join Bridget for 2 hours and 2 minutes of her usual fun, embarrassing, but heart warming antics.
So, what about our gorgeous national favourite Colin Firth? What does he have to say about the new movie? According to Colin Firth, his new rival, Patrick Dempsey's Jack Qwant, is more intimidating than his former opponent, Hugh Grant's Daniel Cleaver. Don't worry Colin! We all still love you! Unfortunately Hugh Grant will not be returning.
Just like the previous movies, you would perhaps expect the film to be an adaptation of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones Novels. However, it is not. It is in fact an adaption of a screen play. One which Fielding wrote with David Nicholls.
Although this is the 3rd movie, the events of the film take place before author Helen Fielding's 3rd novel "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy". It's kind of like a stepping stone for Bridget.
How is this for girl power? The 'Bridget Jones' series is the first movie trilogy directed exclusively by female directors. This is not the only first for the Bridget Jones Series. Renée Zellweger premiered the first trailer on Ellen. It also marked her first ever appearance on the talk-show. We often encounter differences between American and British versions of a film. In the international trailer, a co-worker of Bridget holds up a sign that says "Baby on board". In the UK trailer the same sign says "Up the duff".
As well as differences between cultures, this movie also differs from the others in it's series in a key way. Jone's diary has been replaced with an iPad!
