look forward

Dear Alex,

Which of the following sentences is correct?

1) I look forward to watching that movie.

2) l am looking forward to watch that movie.

I am confused with "look forward to +ing" & "looking forward to sth", could you explain what are the differences? Thanks.

Hi Jess

You can look forward to [something - noun] or, if it is an activity, look forward to [gerund]:

I'm looking forward to the summer.
She's looking forward to going abroad next month.

We don't say 'look forward to [infinitive].'
