9 Feb – Jennifer Lopez's upcoming romantic-comedy "Marry Me" starring Owen Wilson unfortunately will not be released this year.

According to Universal, the film - which was originally scheduled to be released on the big screen on Valentine's Day this year - has been postponed to 11 February next year; taking the slot from another Universal movie which has yet to be announced.

The music-infused movie, which is packed with original songs by Lopez and Latin singer Maluma, is based on Bobby Crosby's graphic novel of the same name.

The story centres on a pop superstar (Lopez) who finds out that her rock star fiancé (Maluma) is cheating on her just moments before marrying him at Madison Square Garden. After a massive public melt-down, she then proceeded to pick out a random man who happens to be a divorced maths teacher (Owen Wilson) from the crowd to marry instead.

On the other hand, Universal also revealed that it will be releasing a Blumhouse movie on 28 January 2022, though it gave no further details about the project.
