The onslaught of sequels won’t end with summer. Fall brings a whole new batch, including Bridget Jones’s Baby. Fifteen years after the first film, Bridget (Renée Zellweger) is a little older, a little wiser, but no less prone to getting into awkward scrapes. More specifically, she’s dealing with a surprise pregnancy and two potential fathers. In one corner, there’s Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), the former man of her dreams. In the other, there’s Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), a charming American suitor.
Our gal is left to figure out which one is the biological father of her child — as well as which one she wants to be with happily ever after. Watch the Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer below.

Last we checked in with Bridget Jones in 2004’s The Edge of Reason, everyone’s favorite “wanton sex goddess” was getting engaged to the dreamy Mr Darcy (Colin Firth). In this fall’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, our girl, now in her 40s, finally seems to have it all: a great job, a handsome man, and even an adorable little bundle of joy on the way.
… Except that, in typical Bridget Jones fashion, the job’s a struggle, the handsome man is actually two handsome men, and she’s not quite sure which one is the father of that baby. Plus, her English accent seems kind of iffy — though that’s really Renee Zellweger‘s problem, not Bridget’s. Watch the first Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer after the jump. Read More »

Over a decade after we last saw her, Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) will return next year in Bridget Jones’s Baby. And in typical Bridget form, she finds herself in another romantic quandary: she’s pregnant, and not entirely sure who the father is. Her on-again, off-again beau Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is still in the picture, but so is a charming billionaire named Mark Qwant (Patrick Dempsey).
It’s a tough situation to be in, but it’s hard to feel too bad for Bridget. Not every single gal gets the opportunity to choose between Pride & Prejudice‘s Mr. Darcy and Grey’s Anatomy‘s McDreamy, after all. In fact, the love triangle looks downright cuddly in the first images from the sequel. Get your Bridget Jones Baby first look after the jump. Read More »

An Insidious sequel has been all but inevitable ever since the film grossed $97 million worldwide on a $1.5 million budget, putting cartoon dollar signs in studio execs’ eyes. We got our first sign that the wheels were in motion when Sony locked down related domain names like insidious2movie.com late last year, and now things are officially moving forward. Director James Wan and scribe Leigh Whannell are in talks to return for a new Insidious film, with Jason Blum set to produce. Brian Kavanaugh Jones, Oren Peli, and Steven Schneider will executive produce.
There’s no word yet on whether stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne will reprise their roles for the sequel. But for what it’s worth, Wilson apparently likes working with Wan — the two are already planning to reunite for a different horror project, formerly titled The Conjuring. No plot details for Insidious 2 (or whatever it’ll be called) have been revealed at this time, though the first film’s ending could easily serve as a setup for a follow-up.
After the jump, Bridget Jones’s Baby hits a speed bump but plans to soldier on.

Two months ago, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig decided he didn’t want to helm the third Bridget Jones movie, leaving the project without a director. The film had a script and a star-studded returning cast, but was left in search of someone to give it a more “British sensibility.” That person has been found.
Peter Cattaneo, who most recently directed Rainn Wilson in The Rocker but also was Oscar-nominated for directing The Full Monty, will direct the third fil. The movie is now called…wait for it…. Bridget Jones’s Baby. There’s more after the break. Read More »
