Paramount Pictures

Beyond the change in weather and onslaught of resolutions, the arrival of a new year ushers in a whole new crop of highly-anticipated movies. And in 2019, romantic comedies are leading the pack. Once ridiculed for their substandard tropes and predictable plots, the genre saw a resurgence in 2018 thanks to Netflix releases like To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and big-screen debuts like Crazy Rich Asians and Second Act. Fortunately, in 2019 romantic comedies are just as trendy. In what’s shaping up to be a year filled with more adorable movie couples and swoon-worthy scenes, here are 10 new rom-coms that will keep hearts melting well past February.

What Men Want

Release date: February 8, 2019

Starring: Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield, Kellan Lutz, and Aldis Hodges

In this gender-swap remake, Henson takes on the role of Ali, a sports agent whose contributions are overlooked in favor of her male counterparts. But after Ali sips a cup of experimental tea, she develops the ability to hear the innermost thoughts of her male coworkers. Expect her to use her newfound gift on the fast-track up the sports ladder. The new comedy is adapted from 2000’s What Women Want featuring Mel Gibson.


Isn’t It Romantic

Release date: February 14, 2019

Starring: Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, and Adam DeVine

Wilson stars as cynical New York City architect name Natalie. Natalie hates everything about rom-coms. But, ironically after suffering from a head injury, she wakes up as the leading lady in her very own personal romance story. True to form, there’s a love triangle with a handsome stranger (Hemsworth) and her best friend (DeVine). Of course, the film wouldn’t be complete without a choreographed flash mob scene.


Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Release date: March 22, 2019

Starring: Cate Blanchett, Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, and Trojan Bellisario

Blanchett completely immerses herself in the titular role of Bernadette, abandoning her signature blonde locks for a brunette wig. In the movie adaptation of Maria Semple’s eponymous novel, Bernadette disappears, leaving her picture-perfect life and family behind. Sure, there’s plenty of drama and mystery here. But there are also some heartwarming romantic moments between Bernadette and her husband (Crudup)—you know, before she goes missing and all.


Five Feet Apart

Release date: March 22, 2019

Starring: Cole Sprouse, Haley Lu Richardson, Claire Forlani, and Parminder Nagra

Say hello to 2019’s version of The Fault In Our Stars. Only this time, two ridiculously cute teenagers (Sprouse and Richardson) are suffering from cystic fibrosis rather than cancer. If you’re a sucker for young love thwarted by terminal illness, this one’s for you. Directed by Jane the Virgin actor Justin Baldoni, you’ll need to keep a box of tissues handy.



Release date: April 12, 2019

Starring: Josephine Langford, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, Peter Gallagher, Jennifer Beals, and Selma Blair

Based on the book series of the same name by Anna Todd, Langford plays Tessa Young, a college student who crushes on the bad boy at school, Hardin Scott (Fiennes-Tiffin). He makes Tessa question everything she thought she knew about love—and herself.


The Aftermath

Release date: April 26, 2019

Starring: Keira Knightley, Alexander Skarsgård, and Jason Clarke

The romance film is set in postwar Germany in 1946, with Knightley taking on the role of housewife Rachael Morgan. She and her husband, Lewis (Clarke), move into a new home with a widower (Skarsgård) and his daughter. And as the popular saying goes, the couple soon find out that three is definitely a crowd.



Release date: June 7, 2019

Starring: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen, Andy Serkis, and Alexander Skarsgård

Seth Rogen is Fred Flarsky, an unlucky-in-love journalist who decides to tempt fate and go after his childhood crush and old babysitter (Theron). Besides the fact she’s out of his league physically, she’s also unattainable because she’s soon to be president of the country. We can already envision the hilarious disaster watching Fred punch above his weight, but we’ll be rooting for him anyway.


Last Christmas

Release date: November 15, 2019

Starring: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh, and Rebecca Root

The resident Game of Thrones badass ditches the dragons for the upcoming British rom-com. Although director Paul Feig and co-writer Thompson have remained tight-lipped about the actual plot of the movie and characters, we know that George Michael’s holiday hit, “Last Christmas,” will be featured. Jury’s still out on whether there will be a kiss between Clarke and Golding under the mistletoe.


Always Be My Maybe

Release date: 2019

Fifteen years later, they randomly run into each other in San Francisco and discover how time has changed them.
