Things Get Suitably Awkward In New 'Bridget Jones's Baby' Trailer

And Emma Thompson looks bloody hilarious.

The second trailer for 'Bridget Jones's Baby' has dropped, and true to form, it's looking like the franchise's highly anticipated third installment is equal parts awkward and hilarious.

This time, Bridget (played once again by Renée Zellweger, in arguably her career-defining role) finds herself in a spot of bother when she falls pregnant but is unsure of who the father is. Is it her ex, Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) or is it the new guy on the block, Tom (Patrick Dempsey)?

One person who can't wait to find out is her obstetrician, played with relish by Emma Thompson.

"It's so exciting, isn't it? It's like the final of 'The X Factor' or something," she quips in the delivery room. "Dial 01 if you want it to be Mark, dial 02 if you want it to be Jack!"

One thing's for sure: we can't wait to get back in the business of Bridget.

Bridget Jones's Baby releases in Australian cinemas on September 15th.
