If you want something different to happen to you, you have to do something different.
On February 11th, just in time for Valentine's Day, Jennifer Lopez, Maluma and Oscar nominee Owen Wilson offer us a different romantic holiday experience with Marry Me. A poignant modern tale about love that can be found where you least expect it - and why not in an audience of millions waiting to witness your wedding to someone else - the film is decided in the best traditions of romantic comedies such as the genre classics Roman Holiday and Notting Hill.
“Marry Me” tells the story of music star Kat Valdez (Lopez), who on the eve of her wedding learns that her fiance, rising sensation Bastian (Maluma), is cheating on her with her assistant. Rethinking her life and love, Kat makes the impulsive decision to marry a completely random person - math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Wilson). But what begins as an irrational reaction soon turns into an unexpected love against all odds.
Marry Me deals with themes and ideas that, in addition to being universal, are also very familiar to incoming lead Jennifer Lopez. In a special video, the superstar shares that this is precisely why Marry Me is a very personal experience: I know this way of life. The film takes us behind the veil of fame. It's also the first time I've had the opportunity to create an album for a film, something I've dreamed of for a long time. Also, here for the first time I have the opportunity to sing with my own voice - my last musical film was Selena (1997), but in it they used the voice of Selena herself.
Along with Lopez, the video also features Owen Wilson, Maluma, director Kat Koiro and producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, who reveal additional details about the story and characters. As well as the fact that there is always hope and we should not be afraid to take risks. These are also the messages that the filmmakers are sending to the viewers.

For Valentine's Day, "Marry Me" invites us to an exciting experience in cinemas for all those who have already discovered or are yet to discover their great love, regardless of its form. It's time to say yes - starting this Friday, February 11 in theaters only.
