The Portokalos family from 2002's Indie hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding might seem like forgotten relatives, but they're coming back in the sequel, and we just had our first look at the trailer, with Nia Vardalos and John Corbett reprising their roles. There will be another wedding, as well as a family secret. And we presume some Windex. Vardalos talked about the project, '"Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true." On this good news, let's look back at why everyone went crazy over this movie in the first place. With the help of GIFs, of course. »

Nia Vardalos penned the script and returns as Toula Portokalos, who is married to John Corbett’s Ian and dealing with a daughter, Paris (Elena Kampouris), failing to embrace Greek culture — even though she’s surrounded by it.
“Keep your eyeballs open for a nice Greek so one day you can make babies,” her grandfather Gus Portokalos (Michael Constantine) tells Paris.
It turns out that Toula’s parents were never legally married, which leads to another massive wedding.
Kirk Jones (“Nanny McPhee”) directed. The film is produced by Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. Executive producers are Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer, Steven Shareshian and Vardalos.
The original film, starring Vardalos and Corbett, was a surprise success with $368 million in worldwide grosses. IFC distributed »

"And my family is still too close." Universal has debuted the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel of all sequels, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, directed by Kirk Jones. If you recall, the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a huge hit with the adults, and played in theaters for months wracking up a massive $241 million at the box office during its run in 2002. Maybe they're hoping this will do just as well? The cast includes John Corbett and Nia Vardalos, once again, with Rita Wilson, John Stamos, Alex Wolff, Mark Margolis, Lainie Kazan & Joey Fatone. If you've been waiting 13 years for this, well, have at it. Here's the first official trailer for Kirk Jones' My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, found on YouTube: After spending most of their time focusing on their troubling teenage daughter, Toula and Ian (John Corbett, Nia Vardalos) are facing marital problems »

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. »

The first trailer has debuted today for long-awaited sequel My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and we have it for you below…
The sequel reunites the entire cast of the original, headed by Nia Vardalos and John Corbett. Vardalos is again the wrtier of the film, which sees “Toula (Vardalos) and Ian (Corbett) facing marital problems while also having to deal with yet another Greek wedding – this time, even bigger and fatter.” The newest addition to the family is their teenage daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris).
Released back in 2002, My Big Fat Greek Wedding was made for just $5 million but ended up making over $368 million worldwide, with over $241 million of that coming from the Us, where it is still the biggest romantic comedy of all time and the highest grossing film ever to not open in the No.1 spot.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 opens March 25th, 2016.

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 »
Opa! Grab a bottle of Windex and get ready to break some plates, because guess who's back! The trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 was released on Wednesday, via NBC's Today show, and, as expected, the movie looks hilarious. Nia Vardalos and John Corbett reprise their roles as Toula and Gus, who are now married with a teenage daughter...while her big fat Greek family is never too far away. Why is the movie called My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2? Well, it turns out Toula's parents were never legally married. You can guess what happens next. The movie also teaches you how to get an instant face-lift—without going under the knife! »
My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a critical darling and a box-office hit when it opened in 2002, and one can only hope that same will be true for the sequel. Heck, we already know John Corbett will be shirtless, so how bad can it be? He and Nia Vardalos are back as Toula and Ian Miller, only this time around, they have a daughter. She's all grown up and applying for colleges far, far away from her big fat Greek family. (I know what you're thinking: the original was only 13 years ago, so unless she's a child prodigy, that math doesn't exactly check out.) Also, there's another wedding! The movie is out on March 25, so watch the trailer and remind yourself why you loved the original now. »

The first look at “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” debuted Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” show, and the family America fell in love with back in 2002 hasn’t changed much. The trailer shows Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) trying to find some time to themselves as their daughter Paris prepares to head to college far, far away from her overprotective relatives. They’re always around, whether it comes to volleyball games or when Toula and Ian attempt to become intimate. “My family is still too close!” Toula complains in the preview.

Did you think for even a millisecond there wouldn't be a big fat Greek wedding in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2? Hoo-boy. That was very silly of you. You probably also thought, because Nia Vardalos and John Corbett now have a college-age daughter struggling with her Greek identity, the big fat Greek wedding in question would be hers. What is this, amateur hour? Grow up. Also, watch this trailer and remember how charmed you were by the first My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which really was a funny little gem. »

Released in 2002, My Big Fat Greek Wedding to this day still holds the record for being the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time, and while the story of Toula (Nia Vardolas) and Ian (John Corbett) continued on in the short lived t.v. show My Big Fat Greek Life (with the story slightly retooled, and minus Corbett), the big screen sequel everyone wanted never came. Until now. With much of the original cast returning, the film picks up with the Toula and Ian struggling to find time for themselves while trying to raise a teenage daughter. Toula’s family is still very much in the picture, and when a long lost secret is revealed, they all come together for another massive wedding. The first trailer is business as usual, with the humour very much in keeping withe original. But the first movie had quite a bit of charm to it, »

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. »

Break out the Windex, it's time for your first look at "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2."
Based on this trailer, the sequel promises to be as funny, sweet, and Tmi as the first film. Believe it or not, it's been more than a dozen years since Nia Vardalos and John Corbett took to the big screen in the original 2002 comedy, and Nia announced at the end of June that they had finally finished filming the sequel.
Now here we are, returning to the love story to see how Ian and Toula are struggling to keep the spark alive while raising their college-age daughter and dealing with Toula's still much-too-close family. This time, Toula doesn't just have parent problems, she is a bit of a problem parent for her own smothered child.
Of course, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" wouldn't be the same without a wedding -- you may be »
