After We Collided: is the film on Netflix UK, where to watch the full movie – and when is After We Fell released?
Fans desperate to see the film are searching the web for answers – so here’s where you can watch After We Collided online
You may not have heard of the ‘After’ series of films, but plenty of young adults have.
The first – released in 2019 – made a reported £52 million at the global box office, and the sequel came close to matching those impressive takings (a mighty feat considering the impact coronavirus has had on cinemas attendances in 2020).
Two more films in series, After We Fell and After Ever Happy, are already in development, with the third movie in the series recently releasing its first trailer.
Fans got another chance to see the second film in the franchise – based on a series of hugely popular online novels written by Anna Todd – last year, as After We Collided came to streaming services.
Here is everything you need to know about it.
When is After We Collided released?
After We Collided was originally released in cinemas in the UK on 2 September 2020.
However, with Covid-19 affecting nearly every aspect of everyday life, it’s not likely everybody who wanted to see it on the big screen will have had the chance to do so.
But don’t fret, the film is available to stream through Amazon Prime Video from today (22 December), at no extra cost to Prime subscribers.
When is After We Collided coming to Netflix?
You may have seen a lot of people online and on social media asking when the film is coming to Netflix.
That’s because in the US, After We Collided is streaming there, but in the UK you’ll need an Amazon Prime account to view it.
What is After We Collided about?
After We Collided is the sequel to 2019 romantic drama After, which was directed by Jenny Gage.
That film charted the tempestuous romance of 18-year-old college freshman Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) and brooding British student Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin).
Gage isn’t back for the second film (directing duties are instead handed to Roger Kumble, who previously directed the Cruel Intentions films), but After We Collided continues the story as Tessa comes to terms with everything she has sacrificed to be with Hardin including study, friendships and a blossoming relationship with nice guy Noah (Dylan Arnold).
Former Disney star Dylan Sprouse plays Trevor, Tessa’s co-worker at the publishing company she is interning at; like many of the fans watching the film, Tessa is quickly enamoured with him.
The closer she looks into the past of her enigmatic beau, the more concerned Tessa becomes that she has made the wrong decision; Hardin must prove her wrong by confronting his past and changing his ways.
Is it any good?
Despite the film resonating with its fans (it currently holds a 93 per cent approval rating from users on Rotten Tomatoes), it didn’t land quite so well with critics (it currently holds a 12 per cent approval rating from professional reviewers.
Variety’s Jessica Kaing said that while After was “merely awful”, After We Collided is “atrocious”, and the AV Club’s Caroline Siede said that although fans will be pleased with “this slightly campier continuation of the series”, for everyone else, “there's not enough innovation to make the second instalment a worthwhile jumping-on point.”
Not everyone was so down on it though, and Screen Rant's Molly Freeman said the film’s “dramatic romance and laughable dialogue offers some escapist fun.”
When is After We Fell out?
In the third instalment, “just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes.
"Revelations about her family, and then Hardin's, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim.”
Filming on the latest film on the series has finished, but no official release date has yet been announced.
However, director Castille Landon has confirmed that the film will be released in 2021.
The fourth film in the series – After Ever Happy – was shot back to back with the third instalment, so fans shouldn’t have too long to wait for that movie either.
