New The Hangover: Part II trailer, Todd Phillips Talks Bill Clinton, Mel Gibson
04.01.11 by reelz
No fooling, there's a new trailer for The Hangover: Part II.
The trailer reveals that while the location (Bangkok) is new, much is the same from the first movie. We learn that instead of Doug (Justin Bartha) getting married, this time it's Stu (Ed Helms) and of course the Wolfpack celebrate the pending nuptials but they awake the next day, not remembering the night before (again) and are searching for a missing person (this time, it's Stu's soon-to-be brother in law) and use clues to trace their steps.
Though being much of the same can be a good thing since the first Hangover was a blockbuster success, grossing $277M, becoming the top rated R movie of all time
Director Todd Phillips talked to EW about a possible third outing with the Wolfpack.
Ha! I don’t know if we’re gonna make Hangover 3, but I love the movie we just made, and we had such a sick time on it that I’d be open to it. We had such a good time doing this one. The guys, there’s just no ego. It’s just us making a movie. It feels like we’re making an independent film. It’s weird, because everyone just wants to make it cool. So for that reason alone, I’d do it again.
Phillips also talks about the Mel Gibson cameo that almost was and dining with President Bill Clinton while on location.
Along with Helms and Bartha, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong return. New to the sequel are Jamie Chung as Stu's fiancee, Liam Neeson as tattoo artist.
