What’s after we collided?
After We Collided is the sequel to the 2019 romantic drama After, directed by Jenny Gage.
That film charted the heady romance of 18-year-old freshman Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) and gloomy British college student Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin).
Gage isn’t back for the second movie (directing is instead handed over to Roger Kumble, who previously directed the Cruel Intentions movies), but After We Collided continues the story as Tessa accepts everything she sacrificed to be with Hardin. including college, friendships and a thriving relationship with nice guy Noah (Dylan Arnold).
Former Disney star Dylan Sprouse plays Trevor, Tessa’s associate at the publishing house where she interns; like many of the fans who watch the movie, Tessa falls in love with him quickly.
The closer she looks into the past of her enigmatic beauty, the more concerned Tessa becomes that she made the wrong decision; Hardin must prove herself wrong by facing his past and changing his ways.
Despite the film resonating with its fans (it currently has a 93 percent approval rating from users on Rotten Tomatoes), it didn’t fall very well with the critics (it currently has a 12 percent approval rating from professional reviewers.
VarietyJessica Kaing said that while After was “just awful,” After We Collided is “awful,” and the AV ClubCaroline Siede said that while fans will be happy with “this slightly more campaigning continuation of the series,” for everyone else, “there isn’t enough innovation to make the second episode a worthwhile starting point.”
Not everyone was so enthusiastic about it, though, and Screen RantMolly Freeman said the film offers “dramatic romance and hilarious dialogues with some escapist fun”.
When is after we drop out?
In the third episode, “Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes.
“Revelations about her family, and then Hardin’s, cast doubt on everything they knew before and make it harder to claim their hard-won future together.”
Filming of the latest movie in the series has ended, but no official release date has yet been announced.
However, director Castille Landon has confirmed that the film will be released in 2021.
The fourth movie in the series – After Ever Happy – was shot consecutively with the third episode, so fans won’t have to wait too long for that movie either.
