Sweet Trailer…'The Hangover: Part II'

Todd Phillips’ The Hangover turned out to be the surprise hit of 2009. Phillips has been hard at work on the follow up and this looks like it’ll be an equally uproarious adventure with The Wolfpack coming back for round II. This time the trio (yup again missing Justin Bartha from the looks of it) is in Thailand. Alan’s shaved head, Stu’s Tyson tattoo, an equally disheveled Phil and now a monkey?? Yup, this looks like another blast they’ll never ever remember. Have a look at the trailer below…

The Hangover Part II is directed by Todd Phillips (Due Date) and brings the original cast back for all the insanity. Along for the fun (which no doubt will be of questionable legality) are Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Mike Tyson, Juliette Lewis, Jamie Chung and what is supposed to be a surprise cameo from Liam Neeson as the Tattoo Man. Oh boy, I can’t wait!!

The Hangover Part II arrives in theaters this Summer on May 26th. What do you think? Ready to shake things up again with The Wolfpack??

  1. They didn’t even try to disguise the fact that it’s a complete rehash of the first one! It should still be amusing but I won’t be in a hurry to see it.

    • Yeah but it it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?:P Due Date didn’t live up to Hangover so I hope Phillips scores big with this (even if it is a retread).

  2. My god. its pretty much the same. Then again, i just watched the Ocean’s trilogy and, thought they are all pretty much the same, they are pretty good.

    I have a funny feeling though that on a second time round… it will be a littel tired.

    • I agree with you on Oceans (even if 12 was a huge disappointment)…but sometimes a formula continues to work even if only slight tweaks are made to it. Trade Carlos the baby for a monkey and put it in Thailand; BING…another (hopefully) surprise hit:) Still looking forward to it but I’ll downplay my expectations.

      Welcome to G-S-T Simon, Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I think you can actually go in new directions with Ocean’s, though, which the second film does even if the third film is more of a retread. This just looks like a straight-up retread. There’s a wedding, a missing person, and a hangover which presents a whodunit for our heroes to solve. Bang, done, easy money.

    I’d have loved for the hangover in this movie to be the result of a totally innocuous event which never typically leaves people blackout drunk. Like, Ed Helms borrows Bradley Cooper’s lawnmower and they all have drinks for old times’ sake and then wake up the next morning with the world around them in shambles. That sounds better.
