At a recent investor's meeting, Warner Brothers chairman and CEO Barry Meyer announced the release dates of the studio's upcoming 2011 movies, which included plans for several comic book movies, according to THR. Since creating a DC Entertainment division, Warners has been quiet about how it plans to compete with the recent success of Marvel Entertainment. This announcement is the first sign of what comic book fans have to look forward to in the next few years. See the list of movies and release dates >> Posted 05.29.10 by Ryan
The biggest outstanding question for The Hangover 2 is where the sequel will be set, since director Todd Phillips admitted that Las Vegas won't be used again.
Last December, rumors started floating around the Internet that Thailand was a possible location, but this week Phillips told Collider that, sometimes, a rumor is just a rumor. continue reading >> Posted 03.31.10 by Ryan
The Hangover director Todd Phillips has already stated that the script for The Hangover 2 is half-complete and won't be set in Las Vegas. CHUD reports that the sequel could in fact take place in Thailand. Apparently, Thailand was a destination that Phillips was going to use for the abandoned Old School sequel.
With the script still incomplete, no location is certain, and until Thailand is confirmed the setting will still be just a rumor. However, it does seem like a good place to wake up after a long bender.
Hangover 2 will reunite stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms, and will open on Memorial Day weekend in 2011. Posted 12.19.09 by Ryan
The Hangover director Todd Phillips is busy working on his next movie, Due Date, but told Entertainment Weekly that the script for his next-next project, The Hangover 2, is already half-complete. Phillips says that he had ideas for the sequel while he was shooting the first movie.
You always have those days when you say, "If we did another one, wouldn't it be funny if...?" Then once the movie tested so well, Warner Bros. came to me even before it was released and said, "Let's do another one."
Phillips wouldn't disclose much of the plot of the sequel, though he says it will put Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis in an entirely new situation from the original movie.
What people loved about The Hangover was not Las Vegas or the bachelor party but these three characters. I think you can take those characters and put them in other situations, and you don't need the sell of Vegas and a bachelor party and all that other stuff.
Wait, is Phillips suggesting a Hangover without a hangover? Posted 12.01.09 by Ryan
Considering the success of The Hangover, a sequel seems like a foregone conclusion. However, it's one that Warner Bros. decided to make two months before the hit comedy even opened. While no details regarding the story for The Hangover 2 have been given, the movie is set to open Memorial Day weekend in 2011.
Director Todd Phillips credits the success of the movie to stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms, all of whom Warner Bros. was nervous to cast.
I remember some executives just didn't understand the casting, and on The Hangover, I felt we'd been seeing the same faces in a lot of comedies, and that it was time to mix it up. Warners was a bit apprehensive...
With The Hangover poised to be the top-grossing R-rated movie for Warners this year, Phillips was certainly right. Now he just has to figure out what to do in the sequel before it goes into production October 2010. Posted 07.13.09 by Ryan
