My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Poster Teases A Bright And Breezy Matrimonial Romp

It seems as though every cult comedy of yesteryear is making a comeback in some form, whether it’s a TV offshoot or full feature-length movie in the vein of Zoolander 2. One of those forgotten gems is Joel Zwick’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

First released in 2002, the comedy flick introduced us to the Portokalos family in all of their weird and wacky glory, and now Universal is getting the gang back together for a bona fide reunion. If last month’s debutant trailer showcased a bigger, fatter and even more outrageous ceremony, then today’s poster for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 teases the return of a cultural phenomenon.

Kirk Jones of Nanny McPhee fame is behind the lens for this one, which will largely orbit around the character of Toula (Nia Vardalos) coming to terms with her prized daughter making a life for herself in Paris.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Gets The Family Back Together With Jolly First Trailer

Will Ferrell’s Anchorman 2, Monsters: University and – whisper it – Dumb and Dumber To, are just some examples of comedy sequels that arrived long after the release of their respective original. It’s a feat that’s proven to be a difficult butterfly to pin, with each of the aforementioned trio arriving to varying degrees of financial and critical success. Even still, that has in no way quelled the enthusiasm for the practice, and Ben Stiller’s Zoolander 2 won’t be the only follow-up arriving in 2016 after a long time spent flirting with development.

After a full 13 years, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is ready to dance its way onto the silver screen, and today brings forth our very first look at the long-in-development sequel. Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) is behind the lens for this one, aiming to create an experience that is appropriately “bigger and fatter” than the cult original.

'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' Trailer Reunites Nia Vardalos and John Corbett

'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2' Trailer Reunites Nia Vardalos and John Corbett
Last May, it was announced that My Big Fat Greek Wedding stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett will reprise their roles as Toula an Ian in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. We haven't heard anything about the sequel since then, but today, Universal Pictures has released the first trailer and photos, while announcing the sequel will hit theaters on March 25, 2016. That release date puts My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 up against the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, although it's unlikely there is much crossover between both of these wildly different groups of fans.

Gold Circle Entertainment and HBO present a Playtone production of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time. Written by Academy Award nominee Nia Vardalos, who stars alongside the entire returning cast of favorites, the film reveals a Portokalos family secret that will bring

Watch: The Family Is Back In First Trailer For 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2'

Thirteen years ago, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was all anybody could talk about. The tiny film made for $5 million was a ridiculously huge smash hit, earning $241 million domestic, on its way to a $386 million worldwide. Those are the kind of numbers you expect from something with branding and toys built in, not from a comedy with zero A-list stars. Well, everyone is hoping magic can happen again as the gang is back for "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2" and the first trailer has arrived. Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan, Gia Carides, Joey Fatone, Elena Kampouris, Alex Wolff, Louis Mandylor, Bess Meisler, Bruce Gray, Fiona Reid, Ian Gomez, Jayne Eastwood, Mark Margolis, Andrea Martin, and Michael Constantine are some of the new and old faces that return in the film that catches up with the family some years later where, you guessed it, another wedding will have be mounted.

DVD Review: Christmas In The Clouds

Review by Mike Gregory

After watching “Haunting Vallisca,” I approached “‘Christmas in the Clouds with extreme trepidation. I needn’t have worried; I liked this movie from frame one. “Christmas in the Clouds” is a low-key screwball comedy that is so likable that it’s almost unfair. The characters are lovable and the whole movie gives off great warmth. It’s not a laugh-a-minute kind of movie (although there are a good few hearty laughs), but it will leave you with a constant smile on your face. Watching this movie, I was reminded of two movies: “City Island” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” I was surprised at the former association because I hated it and really liked this one. Still, there are similarities in the film’s tone. Why I was reminded of the latter is a little more obvious. Both of them derive a lot of their humor
