Overcome phenomena such as ‘Twilight’ or ‘The Hunger Games’, the billboard left a free way to adapt other youth literary sagas. Hollywood wasn’t going to miss out on a best-selling phenomenon like ‘After’, Anna Todd’s hexalogy that promise with ‘After. Infinite Love’ to end the film franchise.
It all started back in 2019, when ‘After. Everything starts here’, that did very well at the box office, guaranteeing the future of the saga. Then each continuation has been raising less and less but enough to reach ‘After. Infinite Love’, the fourth installment that is announced as the end of the story (book 5 and 6 are supposed to be the same from Hardin’s point of view).
The trailer shows us Tessa (Josephine Langford) and Hardin (Hero Fiennes-Tiffin) right after the end of ‘After. Lost souls’. After his mother’s wedding, Hardin is still disturbed by the discovery of his real father, and Tessa decides they should spend some time apart. The couple will have to face the distance and see if they can stop fighting at the slightest.
Apart from Langford and Fiennes-Tiffin, we have in the cast Stephen Moyer (‘True Blood’), arielle kebbel (‘The Vampire Diaries’), Mira Sorvino (“American Crime Story”), Chance Perdomo (‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’) and Carter Jenkins (‘Valentine’s stories’). For once, it seems that all the actors repeat (the saga is constantly replacing actors from one installment to another).
‘Despues de. Infinite Love’ hits theaters on 26 of August and we will see if they will really let the saga be or if it works so well as to continue exploiting the literary material.
