Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for The Hangover Part III. The first trailer almost made the movie look like an action flick, but now we’re getting a look at the comedy and the plot. In the series’ final installment, Stu (Ed Helms), Phil (Bradley Cooper), and Doug (Justin Bartha) are taking Alan (Zach Galifianakis) to a psychiatric hospital, but the gang is side-trekked when a mysterious man (John Goodman) kidnaps Doug and forces the wolf pack to track down Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), who stole $21 million from Goodman’s character. There are some good laughs in here, so hopefully the trilogy will go out on a high note.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and to check out a few new posters. The film stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, John Goodman, Mike Epps, Mike Tyson, and Jeffrey Tambor. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24th.
This morning we’ve got a set photo round-up for your viewing pleasure:
- Need for Speed – The adaptation of the popular video game series is going to have some absolutely sick cars. Even the sheriff has a sweet ride. The film opens March 14, 2014 and stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malik, Harrison Gilbertson, and Michael Keaton.
- Heat – The story enters on Nick Escalante (Jason Statham), a compulsive gambler on the streets of Vegas who takes odd jobs providing “security” to support his addiction. The film also stars Sofia Vergara and Michael Angarano.
- Untitled Abscam Movie – David O. Russell’s film is based a real-life undercover sting operation called “Abscam”, which was set up in the late 70s-early 80s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress. The film stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Elisabeth Rohm, Alessandro Nivola, and Louis CK. The film opens December 13th.

The first TV spot for Todd Phillips’ The Hangover Part III is now available. The short teaser shows glimpses of where the Wolfpack is headed for the concluding chapter in their trilogy and it ain’t all in Vegas. Instead of a bachelor party blowout or a wedding to attend at the last second, the guys appear to start off at a funeral before participating in a prison riot, running for their lives in the desert and buying a giraffe. Classic.
Starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor and John Goodman, The Hangover Part III opens May 24th. Hit the jump to watch the TV spot.
Although the production of Jane Got a Gun got off on the wrong foot, the Western is now getting a shot in the arm with Oscar-nominated star Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) stepping in. Cooper would replace Jude Law who exited the picture soon after director Lynne Ramsay surprised everyone by not showing up on the film’s first day of production. Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) soon stepped in to helm the picture instead. If there’s as much drama and intrigue on the screen as behind the scenes, this is going to be one helluva film.
Jane Got a Gun also stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. Hit the jump for more.
Focus Features has released a new poster and images for Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines. The film centers on a generational conflict involving two fathers: one a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper). This was one of my favorite films at TIFF 2012, and I’m glad that general audiences are very close to seeing it.
Hit the jump to check out the poster and images. The film also stars Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne, Emory Cohen, and Dane DeHaan. The Place Beyond the Pines opens Friday in limited release.
Warner Bros. has released a batch of new high-resolution images from some upcoming summer films. Briefly:
- The Hangover Part III – A new image from Todd Phillips’ trilogy-closer teases a familiar scene as Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, and Ed Helms ride an elevator. The film opens on May 24th.
- The Great Gatsby – A couple of new images from director Baz Luhrmann’s colorful adaptation highlight Leonardo DiCaprio’s titular character flanked by his new friends. The film also stars Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton and opens in 3D on May 10th.
- The Conjuring – Director James Wan’s new horror film debuted a ridiculously creepy teaser trailer earlier last month, and these new images feature Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga’s psychic investigator characters. The film also stars Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston and opens on July 19th.
- Getaway – A new image from this car-set thriller gives us a canted look at Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez’s lead characters. The film opens on August 30th.

Sony Pictures has given Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell’s next film a prime awards season release date later this year. The untitled project (formerly known as American Bullshit) will hit theaters in limited release on December 13th before going wide on Christmas Day. The pic is based on a real-life undercover sting operation called Abscam, which was set up in the 1980s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress.
The cast reads like a “Best Of” from Russell’s filmography, as Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale are set in the leads with Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Louis C.K., Jeremy Renner, and Alessandro Nivola (Face/Off) rounding out the ensemble. Hit the jump for more.

The first trailer for director Todd Phillips’ comedy sequel The Hangover Part III has been released. Billed with the tagline “It All Ends”, and Stu threatening to burn Las Vegas to the ground, the trailer for Part III comes off more like an action movie than a comedy. There are some jokes (the trailer closes with a great one), but more than anything, it looks like Warner Bros. is trying to push the idea that the trilogy’s conclusion won’t be a retread like The Hangover Part II. Let’s hope so.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jamie Chung, Mike Epps, Mike Tyson, Jeffrey Tambor and Melissa McCarthy. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24th.
Focus Features has released a new clip from Derek Cianfrance’s drama The Place Beyond the Pines. The film centers on a generational conflict involving two fathers: one a pro-motorcycle rider and bank robber (Ryan Gosling) and a rookie cop on the rise (Bradley Cooper). Eva Mendes co-stars as the girlfriend of Gosling’s character. As I’ve said before, you want to try and keep yourself in the dark as much as possible on this flick, and I would encourage you to be very careful when reading about it. I saw the movie at TIFF, and it has a good chance of being on my Top 10 films of 2013.

Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) has reportedly signed on to the English-language remake of Kokowääh, a popular 2011 German comedy. The original picture, starring, written and directed by Til Schweiger, centered on an author (Schweiger) who is adapting a best-selling novel with his ex-girlfriend and is suddenly presented with the existence of an eight-year-old daughter from a one night stand. Complicating matters is the daughter’s preference for her foster father over the biological one. Hit the jump for more.
Every year, Jimmy Kimmel Live follows the Oscars with a star-studded sketch. Last year, audiences were treated to a trailer for Movie: The Movie, which featured dozens of movie stars parodying every film genre and cliché. Naturally, every hit needs a sequel, and JKL has delivered with Movie: The Movie 2V. I’ll let you be the judge between which trailer is better, but I would say the sequel surpasses the original when it comes to the obligatory Matt Damon joke.

Warner Bros. has released a couple of new images from director Todd Phillips’ upcoming sequel The Hangover Part III. It’s hard to believe that the film comes out in just three months and we’ve yet to see so much as a teaser trailer, but I have a feeling that’s going to change soon. I wouldn’t be shocked if the first trailer for the pic was attached to WB’s Jack the Giant Slayer next week, so hopefully we see some actual footage soon. For now, take a gander at these new images which feature The Wolf Pack together again and an ominous shot of Ken Jeong’s Leslie Chow.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Heather Graham, Justin Bartha, John Goodman, Jamie Chung, Mike Epps, Mike Tyson, Jeffrey Tambor and Melissa McCarthy. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24th.
As Sunday’s 85th Annual Academy Awards loom closer, we’ve using this week as an opportunity to take a look back at how the past year’s Oscar race has played out in a number of categories. We first took a look at the ebbs and flows in the Best Supporting Actor category, and then we chronicled the road that lead us to the Best Supporting Actress nominees. Today we’re examining the Best Actor race, which actually seemed to be all wrapped up months before the nominees were even announced. Hit the jump to read on.
Yesterday, we showed you Part 1 of Zach Galifianakis‘ Between Two Ferns – Oscar Edition. Today, Part 2 has gone online and features his interviews with Jessica Cheststain (0 Dark 30), Sally Field (Linkin Park), and Brad Lee Cooper (Silver Lining Cookbook). Between the two parts, I enjoyed this one more because Galifianakis gets a little more time to play off his guest, especially his Hangover co-star Cooper. There’s also a special surprise by a certain Lewis.
