“Hangover” sequel trailer in theaters next weekend


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Todd Philips’ sequel to his enormously successful “The Hangover” will be in theaters on May 26, so it makes sense that a teaser for the comedy would arrive shortly. While we had a flurry of news items hitting the Web during the filming (including the Mel Gibson cameo fiasco and grainy pics of a bald-headed Zach Galifianakis), no official footage from what’s being called “The Hangover Part II” has been seen.

But that’s about to change.

A teaser trailer reportedly will be attached to Warner Bros.’ comedy “Hall Pass,” which opens next Friday, Feb. 25. That makes complete sense, as the audience for the new Farrelly Brothers comedy with Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis will be right in line with those patiently awaiting a second “Hangover.”

“We have a teaser trailer that I just finished color for yesterday night, so that’ll come out next week,” Phillips told MTV. “We’ve had, like, one photo out, and that’s just because we finished shooting on New Year’s Day, and the movie comes out on Memorial Day. It’s really just a crazy-tight schedule.”

Phillips went on to say that the clip won’t reveal much, and will act as a true tease. That’s appreciated. A trailer for a comedy that doesn’t give away every joke. I like it.

As for the sequel, here’s what we know. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha and Galifianakis are heading to Thailand for Helms’ wedding. Needless to say, things don’t go as planned. The film co-stars Jeffrey Tambor, Ken Jeong, and Liam Neeson (standing in for Gibson). We also hear Mike Tyson will be back.

Look for the “Hangover” teaser next week.
