Before you know it, 2019 is already upon us, and there are already plenty of new releases headed to screens very soon! While we all await the return of the Avengers or the live-action remake of The Lion King, we're also setting our sights on the love stories that will fill us CGs with kilig all year round.
Here are just some of the most exciting romance movies to watch for in 2019.
Isn't It Romantic
Fresh out of the gate is this promising movie about Natalie (Rebel Wilson), a hopeless romantic who dreams of being noticed at her job in an architectural firm. A freak accident causes her to fall unconscious, and when she awakes, she suddenly finds herself playing the lead in a real-life rom-com.
Five Feet Apart
Starring: Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson
Cole Sprouse takes a break from playing Jughead in Riverdale and charms in this tearjerker about two cystic fibrosis patients who are instantly attracted to each other but must maintain a safe distance between themselves.
Always Be My Maybe
Starring: Ali Wong, Randall Park, Keanu Reeves, and Daniel Dae Kim
No, this isn't the Pinoy movie that came out in 2016. This upcoming Netflix original doesn't have a trailer yet as of writing, but its cast is enough to have us excited for what the streaming service has in store for rom-com fans in 2019. Co-written by comedians Ali Wong and Randall Park, they play two childhood friends and former lovers who now lead very separate (and very different) lives as adults. 15 years later, they reconnect when the more successful Sasha (Ali) bumps into a happy-go-lucky yet struggling musician, Marcus (Randall).
Starring: Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, and Will Smith
Disney is bringing yet another of its beloved animated films to life with this new live-action take on the 1992 classic. The film is directed by Guy Ritchie, the same guy behind the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, and it even has Will Smith playing the iconic genie!
All The Bright Places
Starring: Justice Smith and Elle Fanning
Based on the hit YA novel by author Jennifer Niven (who also pens the script in the movie adaptation), All The Bright Places revolves around two teenagers: Theodore (Justice Smith), a boy obsessed with death and cruelly labeled as a "freak" by his classmates; and Violet (Elle Fanning), a popular girl who's secretly dealing with the passing of her sister.
To All The Boys I've Loved Before Sequel
Netflix has confirmed the sequel to the 2018 rom-com runaway hit, To All The Boys I've Loved Before! An official title has yet to be announced, but we can't wait to see Lana Condor and Noah Centineo reprise their roles and, more so, the onscreen portrayal of the sequel's "third party," John Ambrose McClaren!
