It’s been a while since we’ve seen Jennifer Lopez in a classic rom-com, but she’s ready to go back to her roots. The first trailer for her upcoming movie Marry Me is here and it sees her play a pop superstar who gets married to a total stranger.

Described as “an unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers”, Marry Me sees Lopez play Kat Valdez, a musical sensation who discovers her fiancé Bastian (Maluma) is cheating on her just moments before they’re supposed to get married in front of a live audience.

Instead of calling off the wedding, she decides to do something completely unexpected—marry a total stranger. She singles out a divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) from the audience, and her reckless decisions slowly evolve into an unexpected romance as they get to know each other better.

In addition to Lopez, Wilson, and Maluma, Marry Me also stars John Bradley, Sarah Silverman, Chloe Coleman, and Jameela Jamil. It’s set to premiere on February 11th, 2022, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Lopez will follow it up by another wedding-themed romantic comedy—Shotgun Wedding, also starring Josh Duhamel.
