As we celebrate Valentine’s Day, we take a look at some romantic movies releasing this year.
Romance on celluloid has always been considered a recipe for box office success. The story of When Harry Met Sally (1989), in which actor Billy Crystal and actor Meg Ryan share a platonic relationship only to realise that they are made for each other, still remains one of the most critically appreciated romantic movies of all times.
The latest example includes The Theory of Everything — the biopic on the life of popular scientist Stephen Hawking — that revolves around the bond that Hawking shared with his ex-wife, Jane. Apart from this flick, which has been nominated in the Best Picture category at this year’s Oscars, other such movies that released last year included Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular. On this Valentine’s Day, we take a look at some cinematic love stories, scheduled to release this year, that have been creating a buzz on the internet.
The romantic mystery, which sees actor Nat Wolff’s character hunt for his missing love interest (played by super model-turned-actor Cara Delevigne), is based on the 2008 novel by the same name. Directed by Jake Schreier, the film is written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber, and will release on June 5.
