Since news of the film's second instalment was confirmed in 2018, After fans have been eagerly anticipating its sequel, After We Collided, which arrives on the big screen on 18 September 2020 in South Africa.
About After We Collided
After We Collided, picks up where the passionate and often tumultuous love affair between Josephine Langford (Tessa), Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Hardin), left off and becomes a love triangle with the addition of Dylan Sprouse (Trevor). It goes without saying that the first instalment ended rather abruptly, yet intentionally by author Anna Todd with Tessa emotionally destroyed and everyone wondering how Hardin was going to make up for his mistake.
Tessa and Hardin were committed to working things out until the bombshell of the origins of their relationship (that Hardin only dated Tessa as a bet) was where the film ended. This next instalment begins with Tessa starting a new life for herself which involves an internship at her dream job with publishing company, Vance. Her new-found independence in her new role leaves Hardin dismayed.
Throughout the story we are exposed to an emotional tug-of-war between Tessa and Hardin. Hardin knows that he made possibly the biggest mistake of his life and will do whatever it takes to win 'his' Tessa back. Hardin will always be – Hardin, but is he really the deep, thoughtful guy Tessa fell madly in love with despite his anger issues; or will After We Collided show us another side of him?
Make sure you head to your favourite theatre on Friday, 18 September 2020 for the next installment of this passionate encounter of lust and longing.

SA cinema industry reveals reopening campaign
Following the confirmation that South African cinemas will reopen in August – a consolidated industry campaign titled 'It's Time To Go BIG Again', involving all key role-players, launched on Tv, Digital Outdoor, radio, online, and through social media.
The campaign's central point of engagement is online via the GoBIGagain.co.za microsite and promoted with the #GoBIGagain hashtag – containing detailed information on all cinemas' health and safety protocols, local and international industry news, direct links to the various cinema groups in Southern Africa and more information on the movies heralding the return of the Big Screen Experience to cinemas. It's primarily about re-launching the unique appeal of cinemas, to again screen movies with larger-than-life quality in a way that movies were meant to be seen and experienced.
"We are very excited to roll out our 'Go BIG Again' campaign, which is the culmination of a coordinated industry effort to establish a responsible reopening strategy for the full spectrum of the local cinema business. All of South Africa's cinema exhibitors, film distributors and international studio representatives, along with other industry stakeholders, joined hands and have been collaborating for the past few months to effectively map out the reopening of the industry on non-competitive terms.
"We are also very grateful for the overwhelming support from our partners in the media and entertainment community, who have demonstrated keen interest over the past few months and teamed up with us to launch this campaign nationwide. It's time to go BIG again!" members of the South African cinema industry committee said.
