The much anticipated trailer for ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2‘ has finally been released. The sequel is based 13 years after the original film and is centred once more around the much loved Portokalos family. ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ was released in 2002 and made $368 million at the box-office globally, setting the record as the biggest romantic comedy of all time; meaning the expectations for the sequel are high to say the least.

Universal Pictures have finally released the official trailer, which gives fans a good idea of what to expect. The plot centres around Toula Portokalos (Nia Vardalos) and Ian Miller (John Corbett),  who are still lovingly married with a daughter. Their daughter is played by American film and television actress Elena Kampouri. As the plot unfolds we learn that she is applying for distant colleges, to be freed of her over-protective and over-bearing Greek family.

As for the much anticipated second wedding, well it turns out that Toula’s parents, played by Lainie Kazan and Michael Constantine aren’t (technically) married to each other and the film centres around them tying the knot a second time (officially this time).

Returning also for the sequel are Andrea Martin, Louis Mandylor and Gia Carides. New characters include John Stamos and Alex Wollf. Kirk Jones directs this new chapter, which Nia Vardalos once again wrote; Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goertzman are back to produce.

The long-awaited sequel is set for release on March 25, 2016. Watch the official trailer, here…

The seventh instalment in the Fast and Furious series is exactly what everyone expected it to be: loud, fast and outrageous, most importantly though it’s a lot of fun. Sweeping all before it at the box office and taking in over $1 billion worldwide, the Furious 7 story picks up right where the previous film left off.

Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw makes his series debut hot on the heels of Dominic Toretto and the rest of his crew, swearing to take revenge for his hospitalized brother Owen. After taking out Han in Tokyo (and finally making sense of the third film), we’re introduced to Shaw through an explosive opening fight with series standout Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, setting the rhythm for the rest of the film. Playing out against a background of adrenaline and hip-hop, the story takes a number of exciting if familiar twists and turns that will please fans of the series and fans of the action genre in general. There’s no end to the amount of outrages stunts, and a moment where the crew parachute out from the back of a plane in their cars is a particularly crazy highlight. The death of Paul Walker part way through filming is disguised well in the finished product, and although there is an obvious lack of screen time for Walker in the final third of the film, plaudits must be given to the film-makers for their handling of the situation.

With Wiz Khalifa’s Paul Walker tribute track “See You Again” topping worldwide music charts and becoming the fastest selling single of 2015 in the UK so far, everything points to audiences seeing much more of the Furious series in the very near future. It’s just a shame that one of its biggest stars is not around to see the series’ continual success. The film is certainly a fitting send-off for an actor beloved by the Furious fans.
