Marry Me Plot
Based on Bobby Crosby's graphic novel of the same name, Marry Me is described as a cross between Notting Hill and A Star Is Born. It centers around Lopez's character discovering that her fiancé (Maluma) has been cheating on her with her assistant. As a result, she ends up marrying a random crowd member (Wilson) instead.
Marry Me Trailer
The trailer opens with the announcement that Kat and Bastian will be performing their new single "Marry Me" and exchanging their vows in front of a live audience and virtual audience of 20 million people. While Kat is backstage in a glitzy veil and wedding dress, cellphones buzz with news that Bastian has been cheating on her with her assistant. Rather than flee the scene, the tearful pop star spots Wilson's character Charlie in the crowd holding a "Marry Me?" sign and seizes the moment to tie the knot on stage with him instead.
