So, I’ve been sharing catch up stuff from when I was on vacation, and I’ve caught up with Colin Firth as well now…. well, at least when it comes to the two movies he has coming up this fall. (Thank goodness I am out of a job right now, otherwise I would never have had time for this… 😉 ).
First off… Bridget Jones’s Baby. I am trying to resist this movie, because it can only be a rehash of the first movie (just like the second one was, which turned out to be a bit of a disappointment) and I really don’t like the premise of “who’s the baby daddy?” But then I see screenshots from various trailers over the world shared by “Colin Firth Addicted” over on Instagram and I am sucked right back in… I mean just look at these!
The romance still seems to be there between Bridget and Mark Darcy…
… so why on earth, after all these years, do they have to conquer each other yet again? That is, if they even end up together in this movie, Bridget could apparently also go for the character played by Patrick Dempsey… now that would be a travesty! Anyway, “in vain I have struggled, it will not do…”; my interest, against better judgement, has been piqued. I really have to go see this movie now. Two days ago Ellie Goulding’s title song to the movie was released, inlcuding a video. Does this hint at Bridget going for Darcy (“Still fallling for you”)?
Later in the fall Colin Firth’s other movie Genius should be released here as well. The critics have rated the movie so-so, but I find it intriguing! The story is about renowned editor Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth) who develops a friendship with author Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law) while editing his novel Look Homeward, Angel and follows their relationship after that. Here’s the trailer:
Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney are also in it (I especially like Linney!). And “Colin Firth Addicted” has again collected some great pics…
Yeah, looking good and the story makes me curious (even though I have never read any Thomas Wolfe, although I have heard of him). So, whatever the critics say, I need to see this for myself as well when it comes out!
This is going to be a good TV and movie autumn, with Berlin Station and A Place to Call Home (if I can get my hands on those). Blindspot should also be returning, and then we have these Colin Firth movies and dare I hope for the release of some of Richard Armitage’s movies as well to the general public (Brain on Fire and maybe Pilgrimage)? Lots of goodies to look forward to. 🙂
