There Should Be a Sequel: 'My Best Friend's Wedding'

Every week, EW will imagine a sequel to a movie that we wish would happen — no matter how unlikely the idea really is.

After 1997’s My Best Friend’s Wedding grossed $127 million at the domestic box office, there was talk of a sequel. After all, did we really think sports writer Michael (Dermot Mulroney) and young, tone-deaf Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) were going to last, even if restaurant critic Julianne¬†(Julia Roberts) conceded defeat and loaned the couple her song with Michael for their wedding dance? No! A quick Google search shows producer Jerry Zucker being quoted in 2001 saying that one idea bandied about was, in fact, My Best Friend’s Divorce, which would find Michael and Kimmy on the rocks and Julianne having to decide whether to stage another coup. “It seemed like a contrived way to get those people together again. … We cared too much about the original story to ruin it,” he said.

'Duck Dynasty' premiere: Wait, did I just cry?

I had to see what this Duck Dynasty situation was all about. Little did I know that by tuning in for Wednesday’s season 4 premiere, I’d be entering a WORLD OF TEARS prompted by the pop-up vow renewal ceremony of Willie’s parents — Phil Robertson and his wife of 48 years and counting, Miss Kay.

Phil is instantly my favorite character, a thoughtful voice of reason who quietly arrives at the punchline (somehow nearly every sentence he deadpans has a punchline) at his own pace. “Miss Kay, you wanna know something?” he asked his wife as they sat along the creek. “You are my best buddy.” READ FULL STORY

Adams better with an EW Pop Culture Personality Test, it’s only right that we bring in Meghan Markle, who plays his onscreen love interest Rachel, for questioning. And her answers do not disappoint. Watch the video below to find out which Beverly Hills, 90210 actor was her first celebrity crush and which Baywatch lifeguard received the only fan letter she’s ever written. READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' star Carrie Preston takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Her character, Arlene, may still be in mourning on HBO’s True Blood, but Carrie Preston was all smiles when she stopped by EW recently to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Even when we got her talking about the show her husband, Michael Emerson, once caught her sobbing while watching.

She also shares the TV show that makes her yell at the TV (Game of Thrones spoiler alert!), the show she wishes would’ve gone on forever, the movie she has to watch every time she spots it on cable, the former neighbor she wrote a fan letter to, and her geekiest possession. READ FULL STORY

'The To Do List': Laugh, reminisce, and even get a little misty

The To Do List is a hilarious, raunchy comedy about class of 1993 valedictorian Brandy Klark (Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza) checking off various acts on the hand-written spreadsheet she keeps in her Trapper Keeper. It’s all in preparation for losing her virginity to Rusty Waters (Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter), a hot college guy and fellow summer lifeguard who does a mean acoustic version of Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” And, even with all the bawdiness, it made me tear up. SPOILER ALERT! READ FULL STORY

Martin Freeman says farewell to Bilbo Baggins -- PHOTO

Here’s a bittersweet bit of second-breakfast dessert: A few hours ago, Peter Jackson revealed that Martin Freeman had just shot his last scene as Bilbo Baggins.

This marks the end of the Sherlock actor’s two-and-a-half-year journey to and from Bag End — and nearly the end of Jackson’s own Tolkien immersion as well. “We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups,” Jackson writes on Facebook. The good bad hairy news: From here on out, he adds, “it’s wall to wall dwarves.” (Dwarfs are very upsetting.)

What would have happened on 'Happy Endings' season 4? Producers say...

The bittersweet saga of Happy Endings still has a sad conclusion: No other network stepped up to the kickball field’s home plate after ABC killed the show in May, meaning that Brad, Jane, Penny, Alex, Dave, and Max — Maaaax!! — will live on only in our weird fanfiction memories.

That said, at least we’re getting a bit of closure. Series creator David Caspe and Executive Producer Jonathan Groff (no, not that Jonathan Groff) recently did a postmortem interview with TVLine in which they discussed the show’s fate — “For me, the show’s a gigantic success,” said Caspe, who is such a Dave — and teased a few of the storylines fans could have expected if Happy Endings had survived to see 2014.

'The Conjuring' commercials are freaking me out!

The incessant TV spots for The Conjuring (out July 19, if you can stay alive ’til then, which is not likely) have infiltrated my brain so thoroughly that I never want to sleep, light candles, or hang laundry again. And two out of three of those are major pastimes of mine! This is VERY inconvenient. I used to be so full of hope.

The evil geniuses promoting the movie seem to only air these at night — all night, on every channel — with the express purpose of freaking us the f— out. In case you’ve managed to escape these commercials (which would mean you haven’t turned on your TV this month — congrats), allow me to answer your burning questions.

What’s in my bed? Mosquitoes, plus “a dark force — something inhuman — which has latched itself to your family.”

Will I sleep tonight? No. There’s a “lady in a dirty nightgown” that you, too, will see in your dreams. She will likely “conjure” you out of the bed at 3, 4, and 6 a.m. so it might be best to just not. READ FULL STORY

Prepare to cry watching military families reunite -- thanks, 'SportsCenter'

If you normally tear up watching videos of soldiers returning home (as you should), prepare to absolutely sob when you watch the six-minute SportsCenter video below of them surprising their families. Forward it around to hear your office neighbor sniffling through the wall. (I just did.) READ FULL STORY

The Horrifying Tab I Couldn't Close All Week: Disney Princesses' heads exploding

beauty and the beast head exploding

When I was younger, I’d imagine Snow White leaning juuuust a bit too far into the well, or human Ariel ironically drowning under her oppressive wall of bangs, or the mice turning on Cinderella and devouring her in her sleep (thanks a lot, cheese curd remnants). But nothing like this. The Disney Princesses’ Heads Exploding video was easily the most horrifying Internet oddity I’ve seen all week. READ FULL STORY
