From what we know about This Is Me…Now: The Film so far, Jennifer Lopez’s planned narrative feature will act as a visual tie-in to her upcoming ninth studio album This Is Me…Now and will be available exclusively to Prime Video subscribers beginning Friday, February 16 to coincide with the record release.
We also know that said visuals look absolutely unhinged, as seen in a teaser trailer that showed JLo randomly dancing in a steel factory, sitting down for therapy sessions with Fat Joe and riding across salt flats on a motorcycle with her real-life husband Ben Affleck.

Lopez concurred with Meyers’ assessment, saying that the upcoming film represents a new phase for the performer, “a healthier, more self-accepting phase”:
As well as ushering in this “healthier” new phase, the movie also gets real about the “hard times that nobody knew,” Lopez shared, and helped her gain “the confidence to be vulnerable”:
You’ll be able to see both the romantic storylines and those curious visuals when Jennifer Lopez’s This Is Me…Now: The Film drops on February 16 on Prime Video.
