After We Collided is finally here, and it’s got everything we could have asked for: there’s romance, a little bit of heartbreak, and of course, a popular bare butt scene. The sequel to After picks up where Tessa (Josephine Langford) and Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) left off, with Tessa beginning her internship at a publishing house, and Hardin trying his best for a second chance to get back together with her.
Complicating things is the addition of a possible new love interest for Tessa, Trevor (Dylan Sprouse). After We Collided follows the on-again, off-again relationship between Tessa and Hardin as it’s tested yet again. The second After film also stars Selma Blair and Candace King, and author Anna Todd signed on this time to help craft the script. The film is also steamier than the first, earning an R rating after the PG-13 After.
But if you’re here, it means you’ve likely already watched After We Collided and are looking for another romance as a chaser to the film. The good news is, there’s more in the After universe where that came from. In fact, we’ve got not only one, but two more sequels lined up. We’ll just have to wait a little while to see them. Here’s what to watch to pass the time while you wait for After 3 and After 4.
Of course, if you haven’t seen the original, you need to watch it! After, the film that started it all, premiered just last year, but had us all immediately hooked on the love story of Tessa and Hardin based on the book by Anna Todd. Tessa (Josephine Langford), a college student, falls for the bad boy, Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin), and the rest, as they say, is history.
