After Passion “started in German cinemas in April 2019 with an FSK from the age of 0 – and although some fans thought it was a shame that the eroticism was reduced compared to the books on the big screen, the first part went up to millions in this country. Mega hit! In the second part “After Truth” the reluctance between Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) and Tessa (Josephine Langford) is over – fans of the templates will get their money’s worth even more this time …

The reason for this is not a change in strategy at the US distributor Voltage Pictures. Instead, the bestselling author Anna Todd, who has now also co-written the script for the second, has contractually assured in advance that the sequel will only be approved for adults in the USA. After all, it’s all about how the sex between Hardin and Tessa changes in the course of their relationship – and that’s hard to get across if you always fade away immediately.

In Germany, “After Truth” is approved for ages 12 and up.
But Anna Todd’s more-sex-in-the-sequel contract clause is far from the only surprise – so we have five more facts about “After Truth” that you as fans may not even have on your screen :
Fact # 1: The sequel is only there because of you …
The sequel is only because of you …
Gostream… and with “you” are explicitly meant in this case the German fans! The “After” book series by Anna Todt is a worldwide bestseller, but “After Passion” was a cinematic success less because of the American, but mainly thanks to the European audience – and only because of this was the sequel “After Truth” turned.
thanks to the European viewers a cinematic success – and that’s the only reason why the sequel “After Truth” was shot.
The film was particularly successful in Germany: In April 2019, “After Passion” pushed the comedy hit “Monsieur Claude 2” from the top of the German cinema charts. In the following week, “After Passion” was even able to defend first place – and so in the seventh week of the game, the magical visitor limit of more than one million viewers was finally broken.

Fact # 2: The new director made one of the best teen films of all time!
The new director made one of the best teen movies ever!
When I hear “Bitter Sweet Symphony” from One Nation today, then 20 years after the theatrical release of “Eiskalte Engel” I still feel cold as ice. With his modern adaptation of the classic novel “Dangerous Liaisons”, Roger Kumble succeeded in creating a teenage drama that shaped an entire generation. “Buffy” star Sarah Michelle Gellar not only bets there with her stepbrother Ryan Phillippe for sibling sex, but is also mercilessly exposed by her opponent Reese Witherspoon in one of the most powerful film finals of the 90s …
After “After Passion” director Jenny Gage is no longer there in the second part, you could hardly have a more suitable director than “Ice Cold Angels” mastermind Roger for the sequel, in which the mood will probably also be a little darker and more melancholy Kumble can find …

More than 1,000,000,000 hits – the books are really that successful!
Yes, the “after” novels sold fantastically around the world. But to understand how incredibly successful the stories really are, another number is even more suitable: On the social media platform Wattpad, where the infamous, more than 2,500 page long teenage romance was first published from 2013 onwards. the chapters received more than a billion views in just one and a half years. That’s a 1 with nine zeros. No wonder, then, that the publishers fought over the author, who had previously only published online …

“After Truth” star Hero Fiennes-Tiffin has a very well-known uncle, the two-time Oscar-nominated Ralph Fiennes (“Schindler’s List”). But nephew and uncle not only have the same job, they have also played the same role: namely Harry Potter’s archenemy Tom Riddle alias Voldemort!

But while every child knows that Ralph Fiennes played the dark wizard in a total of four “Potter” films, one has to take a closer look in the case of Hero Fiennes-Tiffin: In his only second acting role, the then eleven-year-old hero Fiennes- Tiffin the young Tom Riddle, who is still living in an orphanage during a flashback in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”.

Fact # 5: The friendship of the fan fiction giants!
The friendship of the fan fiction giants!
Her books about a – certainly not entirely unproblematic – relationship were first published as fan fiction on the Internet, before they were published as international mega-sellers and finally even made into films for the cinema …
