The big romantic comedy this Valentine’s Day is Marry Me. It stars Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, Maluma, John Bradley and Sarah Silverman, and is directed by Kat Coiro and based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby.

Zehra Phelan was our representative at the global press conference with the director and her cast. In this extended interview clips they talk about finding their the heart and soul of the story and their characters, the fun they had shooting the film, and the long journey to bring this film from page to the big screen.

Marry Me is in UK cinemas February 11th, perfect for a Valentine’s Day outing.


Kat Valdez (Lopez) is half of the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth with hot new music supernova Bastian (Maluma, making his feature-film debut). As Kat and Bastian’s inescapable hit single, “Marry Me,” climbs the charts, they are about to be wed before an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will be streamed across multiple platforms.

Divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) has been dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman, HBO’s Big Little Lies) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, seconds before the ceremony, that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life turns left as she has a meltdown on stage, questioning love, truth and loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger—a face in the crowd.

If what you know lets you down, then perhaps what you don’t know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. But as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?
