Cha Cha Real Smooth
Cha Cha Real Smooth premiered in January at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, where it earned positive reviews and won the Audience Award in the US Dramatic category, as well as being a Grand Jury Prize nominee. It will now be one of the key titles in Apple TV Plus' original movie portfolio for 2022.
Here’s a synopsis of the plot: Andrew, 22, is stranded at home with his family in New Jersey, fresh out of college and without a clear life path ahead of him. But if there's one thing he should have on his nonexistent résumé, it's how to get a party started, which wins him the ideal job of motivational dancing at his younger brother's classmates' bar and bat mitzvahs. Andrew ultimately sees a future he desires — even if it isn't his — when he befriends a local woman, Domino, and her daughter, Lola.

She starts working with authorities to track down Finney and The Grabber to save her brother and put an end to the serial killer's spree.
Jennifer Lopez's cinematic career is set to take off in 2022. She's already been in the romance comedy Marry Me, which premiered on Peacock Premium and in theaters at the same time, and she's scheduled to star in Netflix's action thriller The Mother. Shotgun Wedding, a romantic comedy/action hybrid, is also on Lopez's future film list, and while the Lopez-led film was previously slated for a theatrical release, it has now been reported that it will be available on Netflix.
Shotgun Wedding has been acquired by Amazon Prime Video from Lionsgate in the United States. Shotgun Wedding was supposed to be released on June 29, and while it's unclear if that's still the case now that it's on Amazon, it's likely that it'll still get a limited theatrical run at the same time it becomes accessible to stream with an Amazon Prime subscription. Shotgun Wedding had previously been acquired by Amazon for streaming in a few "important" international territories, and the film will also be released theatrically in those territories.
