You read books quickly. You devoured the movies. So what are you looking at next After? movies like After, sure. Based on Anna Todd’s book of the same name, the romance stars Josephine Langford as Tessa and Hero Fiennes Tiffin as Hardin – an unlikely young couple who find themselves in a pretty toxic relationship. But don’t worry, it’s a bit romantic sometimes!
Based on romantic fanfiction once written on the popular site Wattpad, the story featured Harry Styles as the title character (who became Hardin when the story was finally published as After we know now). Hardin’s character, however, is questionable in the story, from Tessa’s mistreatment to engaging in inappropriate behavior. (We’re trying not to give away too much of the story here, okay?) All of this made Styles fans upset that he was even remotely associated with the project. Still, enough people seem to like books and movies to read and watch, which makes them very, very popular. After earning nearly $70 million at the box office (and costing just $14 million), according to Box Office Mojo, it’s clear the franchise isn’t doing too badly.
The first film in the series, Aftercreated in 2019, and After our collision landed in 2020. But wait, there’s more! Two sequels were filmed — After our fall and After always happy — and there’s potential for spinoffs and prequels, too, so-called. We have to wait a bit for more movies in the series, so in the meantime, we’re here to help you figure out what to watch next. If you are looking for movies like Afteror even movies like After our collisionHere are some suggestions.
movies like After
1. The Kissing Booth (2018)
A bit like in Afterby Netflix The kissing booth also features a pretty unhealthy teenage relationship with Elle (Joey King) and Noah (Jacob Elordi). Throughout the three movies in the series, Elle and Noah have their extreme ups and downs with lots of fights, a few romantic bits, and a fluffy ending that’ll probably just leave you screaming at your TV for Elle to respect herself. any further.
2. Cruel Intentions (1999)
cruel intentions, starring Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe, is the epitome of teen drama and romance.

Although a bit like Afterthese relationships are loaded with negativity and sadness.
3. Call me by your name (2017)
Sigh. If you haven’t seen yet call me by your name, prepare for him to tear you apart. It’s forbidden romance at its finest, starring Timothée Chalamet as Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver. The two – who share a significant age gap in the film – end up on a romantic date, but alas, that won’t be the case. This film is much more heartbreaking than Afterbut it’s still a romance and one that will have you cursing your TV in the last scene.
4. Twilight (2008)
Where do we even start Dusk? Of course, this is a teenage romance. There are sweet moments with human Bella (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson). There are also hellish moments that push this relationship into questionable territory. Let’s face it – Edward is a bit of a bad guy disguised as a caring boyfriend. He Is watching her sleep, after all. Either way, you’ll get the teen romance vibe here… plus the toxic relationship.
5. Fifty Shades of Gray (2015)
If you’re looking for another movie that fills that fan fiction void in your soul, try Fifty shades of Grey, quite possibly the most famous fan fiction ever filmed. The sexy story, based on a fan fiction of Dusk, portrays itself as a romance between Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) — though the toxicity of that relationship lingers in the shadows. What about fan fiction highlighting toxic people?
6. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018)

What happens when graduation arrives? Well, you’ll have to fire up Netflix to see.
7. The notebook (2004)
If you’re a bird, I’m a bird, you know? Nicholas Sparks has written his fair share of romances over the years, and Notebook is easily one of the most popular. Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) are on different sides of the track and shouldn’t fall in love but yeah. But what follows are years of heartbreak and questions before they finally pull themselves together. This movie probably won’t bore you as much as AfterAnd this is a good thing.
8. An unforgettable walk (2002)
The couple in this film is truly a match made in heaven. A nice church girl and a bad boy fall for each other, but their groups of friends are the least of their problems.
