The trilogy you never thought would be a trilogy comes to its conclusion.
The Wolfpack (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and, ostensibly, Justin Bartha) have already ventured to Las Vegas and Thailand, but, as pointed out in newly-released first trailer for The Hangover Part III, they haven't learned anything. While we're not sure why exactly the Wolfpack have reunited (there's no wedding this time), it doesn't look like things will turn out any better as the group hits the road, descending once more to Vegas (perhaps only briefly) and meeting up with plenty of familiar faces from the previous movies for a sequel co-writer and director Todd Phillips has described as a "fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions" . watch the trailer >> Posted 03.07.13 by Ryan
Co-writer and director Todd Phillips managed to squeeze just about everyone who made us laugh in the original The Hangover into The Hangover Part II, but he forgot one of our favorite characters: Black Doug (Mike Epps), the drug dealer who mistakenly sold rohypnol to Alan (Zach Galifianakis) instead of ecstasy, which resulted in the "Wolfpack" forgetting, among other things, that they stranded White Doug (Justin Bartha) on the roof and stole Mike Tyson's tiger. Phillips apparently aims to remedy that oversight in the threequel, however, as Variety reports that Epps is "in negotiations to reprise" the role in The Hangover 3. more about The Hangover 3 >> Posted 07.23.12 by BrentJS
For anyone that loves comedy sequels, abdominal muscles and giant monsters, Warner Bros. has a summer planned just for you in 2013, as The Hangover 3, the 300 sequel and Pacific Rim all have release dates.
The first to be released is The Hangover 3, which will open on May 24th, just under two years after The Hangover Part II's May 25, 2011, release date. While many were disappointed that The Hangover Part II took the script from The Hangover, changed the location from Vegas to Bangkok and called it a day, the sequel still went on to earn $581 million worldwide. For the third installment, director Todd Phillips promised that the plot will be different.
"We're going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned," Phillips said in a statement. "It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions." more about Hangover 3, 300 sequel and Pacific Rim >> Posted 03.23.12 by Ryan
Warner Bros. recently uploaded to YouTube the latest TV spots — incredibly, the 16th and 17th TV spots aired so far — for first-time feature director Nima Nourizadeh's first-person teen party movie, Project X.
Produced by Todd Phillips (The Hangover movies) and Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes movies), Project X features a cast of fresh-faced newcomers who landed parts in the movie after a nationwide talent search. The micro-budgeted movie was primarily shot with hand-held digital cameras and centers around three "anonymous" high school kids who try to earn cool cred by throwing the most epic 17th birthday party of all time. Of course, you mix lack of parental supervision with horny teenagers, drugs, and copious amounts of alcohol and you can pretty much guarantee that things are going to get completely out of control. watch the new tv spots >> Posted 02.06.12 by BrentJS
A new trailer for Project X, the micro-budgeted R-rated comedy from producers Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes movies), is now online. With first-time feature director Nima Nourizadeh at the helm, Project X takes the "found footage" genre into new territory: teen party movies. The plot follows three high school seniors as they desperately seek to earn a little cred by throwing a party that no one will ever forget. And, based on some of the hijinks — and devastation — depicted in the trailer, no one ever will. Thomas Mann, Kirby Blanton, Miles Teller, Jonathan Brown, Oliver Cooper and Alexis Knapp star. watch the new trailer >> Posted 01.22.12 by BrentJS
While the movies may not be everyone's cup of Rohypnol, there's no denying the success of The Hangover and its sequel, The Hangover Part II, which out-earned its predecessor at $581 million worldwide. Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. is interested in a third installment, hiring screenwriter Craig Mazin in June to write the script. Mazin co-wrote The Hangover Part II with Scot Armstrong and director Todd Phillips.
Prior to Mazin's hiring, Phillips admitted that a third Hangover "would very much be a finale and an ending," prompting many to wonder where the third movie will take place. After spending time in both Las Vegas and Bangkok, Hangover actors Jamie Chung (Lauren, Ed Helms' fiancée in The Hangover Part II) and Justin Bartha (Doug) separately suggested Amsterdam, as a possible location. While appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Bradley Cooper said production could begin next year on the sequel and offered a contrasting location for the Wolfpack to reunite. where will The Hangover Part III take place? >> Posted 12.06.11 by Ryan

Next week, audiences will get to see whether director/co-writer Todd Phillips can strike rated-R comedy gold again with the sequel, The Hangover Part II. The movie reunites Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Stu (Ed Helms), and Doug (Justin Bartha) as they head to Bangkok, Thailand, for another night they can't remember.
A new featurette explains the movie's story, which shouldn't be difficult to follow for anyone that saw the original movie, something that Phillips says was done entirely on purpose. "The blueprint of the Hangover 2 is very similar to the blueprint of Hangover one," Phillips admitted to CNN. "It's a special thing that the Hangover sort of owns that blueprint."

We talked a lot about ways to make a sequel. The freshest way is in embracing that template that existed but spinning it. "There's not one joke that's the same in the movie. It's essentially a comedy, every joke is different. And, since when have comedies really been so much about the plot?

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.
