New The Hangover 2 Images
Posted 05.12.11 by Ryan
Warner Bros. has released several new images for the upcoming sequel The Hangover Part II, which takes the wolfpack to Bangkok, Thailand, for another night of debauchery and memory loss.
While essentially having the same plot as the first, the setting allows for a even wilder movie, according to Zach Galifianakis, who told Entertainment Weekly that he became nervous on his first reading of the script. "I remember thumbing through it, going, "Oh God. Oh God,'" said Galifianakis.
Much has been made of the Thailand setting, with Ed Helms previously claiming that they went to "hell and back" shooting the sequel in the country. Part of Helms' assessment may have been from his many bouts of food-related illness, which were also suffered by many of the cast and crew. "It does something to your mind when you get that sick," Helms told EW. "You go to a scared, dark place."
The new photos show only a taste of the insanity that Helms, Galifianakis, and Bradley Cooper experience as they try to find the soon-to-be brother-in-law of Helms' character Stu (Mason Lee). Not lost this time around is Justin Bartha, though he doesn't appear in many of the new photos.
Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) returns for the sequel, and may be the key reason they don't remember much from the night before. While there's no tiger, there is a drug-dealing monkey and, instead of a baby, the trio seems to have come across an elderly monk.
Should The Hangover Part II share the same success as the original, the question remains whether a third Hangover will be made. Director Todd Phillips revealed last month that he wasn't against a third Hangover and, in a recent interview with Collider, Helms joked that "Actually we're already talking about the fourth and fifth one. We skipped the third one."
The Hangover Part II co-stars Mike Tyson and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch).
