8 Upcoming Romance Movies We Are Excited About

For all the hopeless romantics the forever couples in this world, the film industry yields out numerous films that connect to their hearts while understanding their pain. In the genre of romance, nothing’s left. Even a one-sided lover’s story is seen and that star-crossed lovers is closely cherished. Over the years, many romantic films have gone on to develop cult following like ‘Casablanca’, ‘Titanic’. In recent times, the romantic films are usually presented with a tinge of comedy, drama or any other genre so that they appeal to all kinds of audiences. The trend of making pure romances or tragedies has taken a back seat but is still done by few. For example, the ‘Before’ series, ‘The Notebook’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ happen to be out-and-out romantic films meant solely for the lovers.

It is true that romance is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is also true that not everyone can make good romantic films as it is a tough art to master. Hence, not many succeed in making such films. While 2017 presented us with unconventional yet, beautiful romances like ‘The Big Sick’, one can only wonder what the future holds for us romantics. Hopefully, all types of lovers get their pieces in the coming year. Here’s a look at the latest new romantic movies coming out in 2018 and 2019.

Surely, the fans of these stars must be pumped for this romantic film having them as wedding guests who get attracted to each other.

5. Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

I particularly love how certain films choose to show the story after the proposal rather than before it. Based on Kevin Kwan’s novel of the same name, ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ provides this kind of narrative. Here, an economics professor visits Singapore along with her longtime boyfriend only to realize his dark past and how wealthy and popular he is. The film shows that phase of a relationship where the two lovers start doubting and question how much they know about each other.
