Marry Me, Owen WIlson, Jennifer Lopez, Peacock

Walking down the aisle with Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson just got a whole lot easier for fans of romantic comedies. The duo’s upcoming film, Marry Me, is now going day-and-date in theaters and on Peacock. The Marry Me Peacock release kicks off the weekend of February 11-13, so be sure to visit the dry cleaner beforehand and get the wrinkles out of your favorite wedding attire.

In the film, Lopez stars as musical superstar Kat Valdez with Owen Wilson playing Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other. An unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers, Marry Me is a modern love story about a celebrity, marriage, and social media.

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, 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?

Also appearing in Marry Me are John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Michelle Buteau (Michelle Buteau: Welcome to Buteaupia), and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Mulan). John Rogers (The Librarians), Tami Sagher (30 Rock), Harper Dill (The Mick) wrote the screenplay, with Kat Coiro serving as the film’s director.

Packed with original songs by Jennifer Lopez and global Latin music star Maluma, Marry Me arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating with a loved one, friends, or rocking the Hallmark holiday solo, the romantic antics of Lopez and Wilson are sure to warm your heart during a cold winter’s evening.
