MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING opened to monstrous and surprising box office numbers back in 2002. The film, which was made for a modest $5 million, wound up raking in $241,438,208 domestic by April 2003. You, guys. that’s like a billion % return on investment. Writer/ star Nia Vardalos tapped into something and made it a worldwide phenomena. So it comes as no surprise that the family is getting back for a sequel in MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING 2 – and the Portokalos clan is as crazy, wild, quirky and insanely funny as ever. Take a look.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding.
I don’t need to wait for an engraved invitation to this wedding – I’m in and have saved the date. Have you?
