Jennifer Lopez is the next artist to follow the musical film trend.
On Wednesday, Lopez released the trailer to a magical musical mystery called This Is Me…Now: A Love Story sending the internet into a frenzy. After announcing her new single “Can’t Get Enough” and subsequent album This Is Me…Now (sister to her This Is Me…Then album), it seems that J.Lo took a page from Beyoncé and Taylor Swift’s playbook with this next venture.
The singer, dancer, and actress showed off all of her talents in the epic trailer, which features songs from the upcoming album. It also seems to highlight her life coming from The Bronx, New York, falling into several high-profile marriages, and her rise to fame.
Entertainment with an edgeWhether you’re into indie comics, groundbreaking music, or queer cinema, we’re here to keep you in the loop twice a week.
But what seems odd is that the large-than-life film seems to blur fantasy with reality. One minute J.Lo is proposed to on a sunset-lit cliff by one of her suitors and the next she’s a welder dancing in a futuristic factory filled with rose petals.
Needless to say, Lopez brought the drama, the dance moves, and the music, but the internet is actively searching for the storyline.
IMBD’s synopsis calls the film “an intimate reflection and highly visual reimagining of Jennifer Lopez’s journey of self-healing and everlasting belief in fairytale endings,” but a lot that wasn’t unearthed by the rest of the internet. What’s even more interesting is the all-star cast, featuring the likes of Hustlers co-star Keke Palmer, Kim Petras, Fat Joe, Sofia Vergara, hubby Ben Affleck, and *checks notes* Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
This wasn’t on our 2024 bingo card, but consider it marked off for sure. And while fans don’t know what to expect from J.Lo’s Dave Meyer-directed film venture, she certainly generated plenty of intrigue, discourse, and, well, confusion.
Guess all will be revealed when This Is Me…Now: A Love Story premieres on Prime Video on February 16.
