Two Preview Clips from The Hangover Part II; Plus Director Todd Phillips Talks The Hangover Part III
05.19.11 by Ryan
Warner Bros. has released two preview clips for the upcoming sequel, The Hangover Part II, which opens next week. Unlike the Vegas setting of the 2009 original, here Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Stu (Ed Helms), and Doug (Justin Bartha) head to Bangkok, Thailand, to celebrate the pending nuptials of Stu and his fiancee Lauren (Jamie Chung). You can guess that everything goes terribly wrong.
The first clip will feel familiar to those who watched the first Hangover, as Galifianakis, Cooper, and Helms once again wake up in a hotel room to discover that another night of debauchery has occurred.
The second clip finds Helms, Galifianakis, Cooper, and Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) being chased through the streets of Bangkok.
Todd Phillips, who directed the first Hangover and co-wrote and directed the sequel, revealed last month that he could "do a third" Hangover as well because "we love working together." At The Hangover Part II press junket, Collider reports that Phillips revealed that a third Hangover would be "a finale."
If we were to do a third one, and quite honestly we really haven't talked about it as we just finished the movie two weeks ago, this is the first time we've all been together in awhile. If we were to do a third one, if the audience...if the desire was there...I think we have a clear idea where that would head and it's certainly not in the same template you've seen these movies and obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy as you can imagine (lot’s of laughter), the third would very much a finale and an ending.
The most I could say about it and I haven't discussed it with these actors is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea. As far as where it takes place...I'm very open like the Olympic committee to being pitched and presented cities…flown around with wine and women and bribed and then I will make my decision.
Of course, a third installment would be predicated on a solid box office performance, which could very well happen unless Kung Fu Panda 2 wins the weekend instead.
