We’ve long been promised that “The Hangover Part III” will be different from its two predecessors, and as the new full length trailer reveals, that is indeed a promise kept. Sure, there’s still Vegas, crazy car chases and antics involving exotic animals, but there’s no getting blackout drunk and not remembering anything that happened the night before for the Wolfpack of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis this time around.
On their way to dropping Galifianakis’ Alan off at rehab, the trouble-magnet trio are apprehended by John Goodman and some scary henchmen, who task the boys with tracking down Ken Jeong’s outrageous Mr. Chow, who has stolen $2 million from the wrong people. The final Todd Phillips-directed comedy has us pleasantly surprised with its ability to live up to the hijinks that make the franchise fun while still actually allowing its characters to finally mature and learn their lesson. Count us in for the release on May 24th.
Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms are back at it (and once again leaving poor Justin Bartha behind) in the first trailer for “The Hangover Part III”, the self-proclaimed epic conclusion to the trilogy of mayhem and bad decisions. The misfit trio are back in Vegas, the place where it all started, for at least part of the action that involves a funeral, a prison riot, cops, criminals, a stolen giraffe and Melissa McCarthy.
Various people connected with the film have teased that the plot is a little different this time around (have they finally learned their lesson about drinking too much?), but it’s still hard to make heads or tails out of the footage we have so far. Todd Phillips has directed all three films in this most unorthodox blockbuster trilogy – no comic book superheroes or futuristic dystopian teenagers here – and the final installment will be released on May 24th. The first trailer can be viewed below.
The trio of Phil, Stu and Alan (and their movie star counterparts Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis) strut and swagger their way through the first teaser from the sequel to their Las Vegas bachelor-party comedy “The Hangover”, this time leaving behind the extravagance of a Vegas suite for the cockroach ridden filth of a seedy corner of Bangkok. The 3-man wolfpack is sweaty, dirty and exhausted but hey, they’re still all doing better than poor Justin Bartha, who appears to have been replaced by a monkey.
The Todd Philips comedy releases on May 26, 2011. Watch the trailer below or in glorious HD at Apple Trailers.
Entertainment Tonight is the first on the Thailand set of the sequel to last summer’s monster hit “The Hangover” and brings us our first footage of the black-out drunk antics of Doug (Justin Bartha), Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Stu (Ed Helms), whose marriage is being celebrated this time around. Other familiar faces will be returning, such as Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong as Mr Chow, but not Heather Graham. Apparently it wouldn’t have made sense for her character to have a role in the sequel since it’s set in Thailand… but bumping into Mike Tyson and Mr. Chow is completely logical. Oh well. Stu will be marrying Jamie Chung instead.
Check out the new footage, which feels much bigger than the first movie, with more locations and bigger stunts, but is it just us or is poor Doug once again conspicuously missing for most of the action? See how they manage to lose him again when the film hits theaters on May 26.
Jamie Chung has joined the ensemble cast of “The Hangover Part II”. She will play the fiance of Stu, the character played by Ed Helms. The entire cast from the first film will be returning, minus Heather Graham, so it might be logical to conclude Chung will fill a similar role in the sequel.
The 27-year-old Chung has come a long way since breaking into the industry as a cast member on the MTV reality series “The Real World” in 2004. She followed up the MTV stint with supporting roles on TV and in movies and will next be seen in Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated “Sucker Punch”, starring fellow rising stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish. She also has a role in “Premium Rush” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
“The Hangover Part II” is currently filming and will be released on May 26, 2011.
