Todd Phillips (Director) said: 'I'm so excited to embark on another 'Hangover' film with Bradley, Ed and Zach. We're going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned. 'It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.'
In its first four days of release "The Hangover Part II" grossed $118 million, making it the best Memorial Day weekend in history at the domestic box office. The sequel is expected to gross another $20 million on Monday for a five-day bow of $138.1 million, setting a new debut record for a comedy. The film cost $80 million to make.
It’s being reported today on The Hollywood Reporter that the three stars of The Hangover movie series, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, are demanding a $15m day payday, each, to make a third Hangover movie.
Despite the success of the first two films, it is unlikely that moviegoers will be as excited for the third. With ticket prices around $10-12, viewers want to see something new and are apprehensive about seeing the same story line again. Although “The Hangover Part II” brought in about $100,000 more than ‘The Hangover’, the first movie had higher ratings.
After adventures in Las Vegas and Bangkok, Cooper said, “I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.”
The second time around with the Wolfpack is even more outrageous than the first. A strip club, a finger, a drug lord, a tattoo parlor and a monkey are the keys to solving the mystery of the missing wedding guest at the latest bachelor party.
It's official: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are all returning for the third and final installment of The Hangover series. Due out next May, The Hangover Part III takes the 'wolf pack' on another debauched adventure across America and Mexico.
The Hangover was undoubtably the best Las Vegas buddy film of all time. It was a phenomenon. The film racked in a cool $277.3 million dollars states side, making it the highest grossing R-rated comedy in history. It pulled in another $190.1 million dollars overseas and a sequel was inevitable.
The original “Hangover,” released in 2009, set its characters loose on Las Vegas and sold more than $467 million in tickets worldwide. The 2011 sequel, set in Bangkok, was even more lucrative and grossed a further $581 million globally, but took lumps from critics who called it a retread of the first film.
Warner Brothers announced that it was preparing a third installment in the “Hangover” series, its bawdy, billion-dollar grossing comedy franchise
