“The future of humanity is in her hands,” reads the opening subtitle to the trailer.

The film, which opens May 24, follows Atlas Shepherd (Lopez), a brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence, who joins a mission to capture a renegade robot with whom she shares a mysterious past. But when plans go awry, her only hope of saving the future of humanity from AI is to trust it.

Starring alongside Lopez are Simu Liu, Sterling K. Brown, Gregory James Cohan, Abraham Popoola, Lana Parrilla and Mark Strong.

The film was written by Leo Sardarian and Aron Eli Coleite, with Brad Peyton serving as the director.

The film went on to enter Netflix’s most popular film list.

Jennifer Lopez’s “This Is Me… Now” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart

Jennifer Lopez is livin’ in the chart-topping Now

The 54-year-old Puerto Rican superstar has earned her third No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (dated March 2), as her new studio album This Is Me… Now debuts atop the tally.

Jennifer LopezLopez was last at No. 1 more than 20 years ago, when J to Tha L-O! The Remixes spent two weeks atop the chart in February and March of 2002. She scored her first No. 1 on the list with J.Lo in 2001.

In the tracking week ending February 22, This Is Me… Now sold 14,000 copies in the U.S. Of that sum, physical sales comprise 11,000 (6,000 on CD and 5,000 on vinyl) and digital download sales comprise 3,000. The album was available in four CD variants (including one that had a signed insert), nine vinyl editions (all were color variants, including one with a signed insert) and three digital album variations (a standard version, a deluxe edition with two bonus tracks and a commentary edition sold via Lopez’s official webstore).

This Is Me… Now also debuts at No. 1 on Top Current Album Sales, No. 1 on Tastemaker Albums, No. 7 on Vinyl Albums, No. 7 on Independent Albums and No. 38 on the Billboard 200.

Top Current Album Sales ranks the week’s top-selling new/current albums (non-catalog/older titles). Vinyl Album tallies the week’s top-selling vinyl releases. Tastemaker Albums measures the top-selling titles at independent and small chain record stores. Independent Albums ranks the most popular independently released albums of the week, by units.

On the Billboard 200, This Is Me… Now marks Lopez’s 13th total chart entry and 11th top 40-charting effort. It’s her first studio album in nearly a decade, and her first release outside the major label system, as the new set was issued via Nuyorican/BMG.

“This is the first step of an immediate strategy with a long-term goal as the incredible content to support the album continues to roll out,” says Cyndi Lynott, SVP marketing at BMG, “including the This Is Me…Now: A Love Story Amazon Original, a documentary entitled The Greatest Love Story Never Told, and of course her massive summer tour.”

In total, This Is Me… Now marks Lopez’s ninth top 10 on Top Album Sales and 13th chart entry overall. The new release is a sister project to Lopez’s third album, This Is Me… Then, which was released 2002 and peaked at No. 2 on the chart.

Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales. The chart’s history dates back to May 25, 1991, the first week Billboard began tabulating charts with electronically monitored piece count information from SoundScan, now Luminate. Pure album sales were the sole measurement utilized by the Billboard 200 albums chart through the list dated December 6, 2014, after which that chart switched to a methodology that blends album sales with track equivalent album units and streaming equivalent album units.

Jennifer Lopez Releases Official Music Video for “Can’t Get Enough” Remix Featuring Latto

Jennifer Lopez just can’t get enough of her latest single…

The 54-year-old Puerto Rican superstar has released the summer-ready video for her remix of “Can’t Get Enough.”

Jennifer Lopez, Latto, Can't Get EnoughThe new visual cooked up by JLo and director Tanu Muiño for the bouncy first single from the singer/actress’ upcoming This Is Me… Now album features a guest verse from Latto, with both women taking it to the street in the dance-heavy clip.

In keeping with the narrative arc about love addiction in Lopez’s upcoming This Is Me… Now: A Love Story Amazon original film, the new video opens with Lopez getting harassed by a group of sharply dressed reporters bombarding her with probing questions. “’What are you chasing?’,” one asks, while another wonders, “‘What’s it all about?,’” and a third inquiring mind shouts, “‘Jennifer, what really matters to you?’”

Lopez’s answer, of course, is “Love.”

Cue the track and Lopez writhing in a gauzy white robe on a bed — with a killer view of the city through her giant picture windows — as she stares lustily into a mirror. The camera then follows Lopez outside, where she walks confidently onto a city street, loses her tan jacket and struts through the middle of traffic. This, naturally, leads to a literal Jenny From the Block dance routine, with Lopez and an impromptu group of male dancers busting moves in an intersection.

Lopez then slips under a dinner table on a night out with her man, crawling across the floor sensually while also walking toward Latto on a soundstage, with both women dressed in deep red, body-hugging dresses. “Call the doctor, I don’t see nobody but you/ Do I still love you? Baby, is the sky blue?/ Spoil a b–ch down and he faithful to me too/ You know you the reason why they hatin’ on me, boo,” Latto raps as Lopez rubs up on her.

The rest of the video appears to compile footage from the short film, much of it consisting of Lopez in various thong-baring outfits, including a sure-to-be-GIFFed sequence in which she takes an outdoor shower in a black string bikini for an audience of shirtless hunks floating in a reflecting pool.

The original version of “Can’t Get Enough” was released on January 10 as the first taste of Lopez’s long-awaited ninth studio album, which will be released on February 16. An accompanying film directed by Dave Meyers will hit Amazon Prime Video the same day.

Jennifer Lopez Teases Wedding-Centric Teaser for “Can’t Get Enough” Music Video

Jennifer Lopez is headed to the altar…

With the release of the 54-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s latest single “Can’t Get Enough” and its accompanying music video imminent, J.Lo shared a teaser clip from the wedding-themed visual, as well as the release date for the track.

Jennifer Lopez“Can’t wait for ‘Can’t Get Enough’ in [two] days!!! #THISISMENOW The wait is almost over…” she captioned the video, which features her in full bridal gear engaging in classic wedding activities among different grooms, from exchanging rings and saying “I do” to sharing the first dance as a married couple and driving off to the honeymoon in a convertible getaway car.

While she has a couple of different grooms in the teaser, her partner Ben Affleck is not one of them.

“Can’t Get Enough” is the first single to be released from Lopez’s forthcoming album This Is Me … Now.

The “Let’s Get Loud” singer first told fans about the album, which serves as the follow-up to 2002’s This Is Me … Then, in November 2022. The album marks J.Lo’s first album since 2014’s A.K.A.

Speaking about the album in her 2022 Vogue cover story, Lopez described the album as the “culmination of who I am as a person and an artist.”

She added: “People think they know things about what happened to me along the way, the men I was with — but they really have no idea, and a lot of times they get it so wrong. There’s a part of me that was hiding a side of myself from everyone. And I feel like I’m at a place in my life, finally, where I have something to say about it.”

This Is Me … Now is scheduled to release on February 16, 2024.

Jennifer Lopez is promising a musical experience like no other…

The 54-year-old Puerto Rican superstar has released a teaser clip packed with tons of visuals to further build anticipation for her upcoming ninth album, This Is Me… Now.

Jennifer LopezThe 18-second teaser opens with the words “Hear It, See It, Live It” before transitioning to stunning shots of her dancing in the rain, twirling in a factory, a motorcycle racing through water and more.

“This musical experience is a manifestation through music, film, and reality, of life’s journey on the search for truth about love,” reads a message at the end of the clip, along with a link to onthejlo.com.

A larger announcement about This Is Me… Now is expected to arrive on Monday, according to Lopez’s social media accounts and website.

This Is Me… Now is the follow-up to the superstar’s similarly titled 2003 album, This Is Me… Then, which was dedicated to her partner at the time, Ben Affleck.

The two were engaged in 2002 before parting ways in early 2004. The pair rekindled their romance in 2022 and married soon after. Lopez has confirmed that This Is Me… Now is also inspired by Affleck and their stronger-than-ever relationship.

In 2022, she teamed up with Maluma for the soundtrack of their Marry Me film.

Jennifer Lopez Among Hollywood A-Listers Donating Seven-Figure Checks to SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Emergency Financial Assistance Program

Jennifer Lopez is helping provide financial support to striking SAG-AFTRA performers.

As the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes continue, the 54-year-old Puerto Rican superstar is among a list of some of the most influential names in the entertainment industry who are giving hefty donations to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Emergency Financial Assistance Program.

Jennifer LopezOn Wednesday (Aug. 2), SAG-AFTRA Foundation president Courtney B. Vance announced that the Emergency Financial Assistance Program has raised more than $15 million in the past three weeks. The SAG-AFTRA foundation has served as an independent charity since 1985, and provides relief aid to eligible SAG-AFTRA performers in unexpected financial crises.

Lopez and hisband-actor Ben Affleck are among the top donors who’ve given $1 million or more. Others include are Nicole KidmanHugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, Oprah WinfreyMeryl Streep, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively and Luciana and Matt Damon.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was the first to donate a seven-figure sum, Vance previously announced in late July.

According to Vance, “The entertainment industry is in crisis and the SAG-AFTRA Foundation is currently processing more than 30 times our usual number of applications for emergency aid. We received 400 applications in the last week alone.”

While top-earning actors such as Lopez — who has had a successful career in music and film — and husband Affleck have ample economic security, this is not the case for the majority of working actors, hence their decision to strike. Vance continued, “Our Emergency Financial Assistance Program is here to ensure that performers in need don’t lose their homes, have the ability to pay for utilities, buy food for their families, purchase life-saving prescriptions, cover medical bills and more … For more than 38 years, the Foundation has been a safety net for our community during its most challenging times, and much like the COVID pandemic, this work stoppage magnifies the precarious living conditions and financial distress of many actors living paycheck to paycheck.”

Members of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA are demanding a larger share of streaming residuals, increased job security for writers, larger writers’ rooms and a limit on the use of AI in screenwriting and background acting among other negotiating points.

Netflix Releases Trailer for Jennifer Lopez’s Action Film “The Mother”

Jennifer Lopez is mothering

“Where’s my baby?” says the 53-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s character, known only as The Mother, in the first trailer for Netflix‘s forthcoming action film of the same name, which is set for a Mother’s Day weekend debut on May 12th.

Jennifer Lopez“You wasted FBI time trying to cut a deal for yourself, and seven agents were killed. This conversation now takes place on our terms,” an FBI official played by Edie Falco tells her. “Adrian Lovell and Hector Álvarez are still out there. You and I both know the only way you protect that child is to disappear.”

And disappear, the former assassin does. “You put her with good people, keep her safe,” Lopez tells a trusted character played by Omari Hardwick. “If there’s trouble, you let me know.” Of course, trouble comes for her around 12 years later, as villains played by Joseph Fiennes and Gael García Bernal have her daughter (Lucy Paez) kidnapped, with Lopez being forced to come out of hiding to save this girl to whom she’s now a total stranger.

“I’m a killer, but I’m also a mother,” says Lopez. “And I will die protecting her.”

Niki Caro directed the film, also starring Paul Raci, Jesse Garcia, Yvonne Senat Jones and more, from a script by Misha Green, Andrea Berloff and Peter Craig.

Lopez most recently led the rom-coms Shotgun Wedding and Marry Me for Lionsgate/Amazon and Universal Pictures, respectively. She’ll next be seen in Netflix’s sci-fi thriller Atlas with Simu Liu, Sterlking K. Brown and more, and recently signed on to star in the Amazon drama Unstoppable from Artists Equity, the new production company of Matt Damon and her husband Ben Affleck.
