The Wolfpack is headed back to Vegas in Todd Phillips’ conclusion of The Hangover trilogy, The Hangover Part III. This new TV spot hints at just some of the trouble the guys get up to in Sin City while featuring looks at returning co-star Heather Graham and the new big baddy played by John Goodman. There’s also a new poster which features one of Alan’s animal sidekicks.
Starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong and Justin Bartha, The Hangover Part III opens May 24th. If you missed any coverage from our set visit, you can get caught up on interviews with Cooper, Helms, Jeong, Galifianakis, Phillips and screenwriter Craig Mazin here.

Just before Thanksgiving of last year, I took a little trip to Tijuana. Then things got a little fuzzy. I came to in a flophouse in the middle of nowhere and found myself with a front row seat to an out-of-control cock fight. Blanket-draped chicken crates were stacked all around the seedy hotel room, which was quiet until Alan crashed into them … then all Hell broke loose. Roosters took flight in the confined space and attacked anything they could get their talons on. Unfortunately, that happened to be Phil and Stu’s faces. Then, to make matters worse, Mr. Chow busted in and started firing a gun at the flying menaces, narrowly missing his friends. After his clip ran out, director Todd Phillips yelled, “Cut! Reset!” and the cast and crew broke into laughter.
Rather than take to the dangerous streets of Tijuana itself (where someone might kidnap poor Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper), this particular scene of The Hangover Part III was staged on a Warner Bros. studio set. The safety of the location certainly didn’t negatively impact the crazy performances of Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong at all. Roosters and bullets were definitely flying, though not all of them were real. The excitement on set from everyone involved in the trilogy’s concluding chapter was, however, quite genuine. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24th; you can watch the most recent trailer here. I’ll have set visit interviews with the cast, writer and director coming up, but hit the jump for 45 things to know about the upcoming film.
Before he earned himself an Oscar nomination, Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) got attacked by a chicken in a Tijuana flophouse. Luckily, the chicken wasn’t real and neither was the seedy motel; they were part of the set for Warner Bros.’ film, The Hangover Part III. Cooper was kind enough to join our group of visiting journalists for a roundtable interview in which he talked about the evolving relationships between members of the Wolfpack, filming the final installment in The Hangover trilogy, going back to Vegas, his experience with Oscar buzz and being People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man of the Year.”
The film also stars Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Mike Epps and Jeffrey Tambor. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24th and, if you haven’t seen it, you can check out the recently-released trailer here. Hit the jump for our full interview with Cooper.
When first we met Zach Galifianakis on the set of Warner Bros.’ The Hangover Part III, he was crashing into a stack of crates and sending cockfighting roosters into a tizzy. After he cleaned himself up, Galifianakis treated us to a roundtable interview in which he talked about his character Alan’s central arc in the film, revisiting Alan’s family, the ever-changing relationships within the Wolfpack, Alan’s sense of fashion and his penchant for animal sidekicks.

Around Thanksgiving of last year, a group of journalists was invited to the set of Warner Bros.’ The Hangover Part III, writer/director Todd Phillips’ conclusion to The Hangover trilogy. During our roundtable interviews, Phillips talked about the darker but more realistic tone of the final chapter and how it focuses on Alan (Zach Galifianakis). There are still plenty of laughs to be found, but Phillips stressed that Part III is more about the resolution of these characters and their emotional baggage rather than the hook of a forgotten night of partying.

Just before Thanksgiving of last year, I watched Ed Helms get attacked by four chickens in a Tijuana flophouse. He was fine and so were the chickens since it was part of our set visit to Warner Bros.’ The Hangover Part III. Helms, who is reprising his role of Stu the newly-married dentist in the concluding chapter of The Hangover trilogy, kindly sat down with a group of visiting journalists for a roundtable interview. He talked at length about the evolving character relationships within the Wolfpack, traveling to exotic locales, working with returning characters and the ever-expanding cast of animal stars featured in their movies.

When a group of journalists visited the set of The Hangover Part III late last year, we half expected Ken Jeong to leap naked out of the trunk of a car or hurl himself out of an ice machine. No such luck; he only leapt on the bed of a Tijuana hotel and started shooting (blanks) at (animatronic) roosters. After he had his fun, Jeong participated in a roundtable interview in which he talked about his skyrocketing career, his character’s relationship to the Wolfpack, doing more action and stunts in this film and wrapping up the concluding chapter of The Hangover trilogy.

Just before Thanksgiving of 2012, a group of journalists were invited to the set of Warner Bros.’ The Hangover Part III, where screenwriter Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II) participated in a roundtable interview. Mazin talked about the plan – and the difficulty – of drafting a concluding film for The Hangover trilogy, just how many places the story will take the Wolfpack, familiar faces who will reprise their roles and new characters – like John Goodman as a “very dangerous man” – who will take us by surprise.

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.

I realize that it’s a little too March to be discussing my favorite holiday gifts, but I only recently had the opportunity to dive into one of mine and, as a result, I feel the need to share it’s greatness with our readers. The ESPN 30 for 30 Collector’s Set Blu-ray is an outstanding collection of sports documentaries that is rife with social commentary and almost sure to have something for sports and/or documentary fans alike. Before I get accused of paid programming, I’ll disclaim that all thirty of its films aren’t home runs (that’s right, a sports pun). Moreover, I’m fairly sure that all of the series’ entries are available to watch instantly on Netflix right now making the physical collection redundant for some. Regardless of how you partake, I encourage you to sift through the series, find a topic that interests you, and give it a shot.
All recommendations aside, this week’s Top 5 features a healthy portion of Iron Man 3 coverage (including the new trailer), Oz the Great and Powerful interviews with Sam Raimi, James Franco, Mila Kunis, and more, the first trailer for The Hangover Part III, a sizable Justice League movie rumor, and the new trailer and poster for Will Smith and Jaden Smith‘s After Earth. As you may be expecting, a brief recap and link for each of the above waits after the jump.
We’ve got a few interesting set photos to share this afternoon. Briefly:
- The Hangover Part III – We previously knew that director Todd Phillips’ trilogy closer would at least be spending some time in Las Vegas, and this image shows Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms filming scenes inside Caesar’s Palace.
- Dom Hemingway – Star Jude Law is looking plenty intimidating as the lead opposite Madalina Ghenea in this crime comedy about a safe-cracker who gets out of prisoner and sets out to obtain what he’s owed.
- Horns – Daniel Radcliffe stars as a young man who wakes up to find himself accused of the violent rape and murder of his girlfriend and sprouting horns on his head. Harry Potter looks sufficiently troublesome in these set photos as fights back against a couple of cops.

Check out our latest casting round-up featuring old veterans, up-and-comers and fresh faces. Here’s the news in brief:
Hit the jump for details on each project.
Ken Jeong (Community) spent his time in The Hangover as a mean, naked gambler that hit so hard; he returned in The Hangover Part II, but [spoiler alert] spent the better part of the movie presumably dead. In The Hangover Part III, Jeong’s role will be substantially more involved. Plot details are being kept under wraps at the moment, but we do know that the story takes place in Tijuana and may include breaking Alan (Zach Galifianakis) out of a mental institution. Jeong’s schedule is being massaged to avoid conflicts with Community, which shoots this August, while The Hangover Part III is set to begin in September. THR also reports that the threequel will feature the return of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and director Todd Phillips.
When The Hangover Part II was released back in May, director Todd Phillips told Steve that The Hangover: Part III “would very much a finale and an ending,” and that the story wasn’t “in the same template you’ve seen these movies.” Putting aside the criticism that they shouldn’t have reused the template for Part II in the first place, it’s good to know that the finale will try something new. Bradley Cooper was recently on The Graham Norton Show and confirmed Phillips’ previous statements. He also provided some new details on the upcoming sequel. Hit the jump for more.
When you think of Todd Phillips’ filmography, there’s a few key names that come to mind: Will Ferrell (who’s starred or cameo’d in a good number of Phillips’ films) for instance, or Juliette Lewis (who appeared in Old School and Due Date), or Seann William Scott (who cameo’d in Old School and starred in School For Scoundrels). Add another name to that list: Scot Armstrong, who wrote Old School, Road Trip, School For Scoundrels, and this week’s The Hangover Part Two for the director. We interviewed Armstrong prior to the release of the Hangover sequel, and he had some interesting things to say about sequels, dark comedy, the chances for a Hangover Part Three, and he also talked about his directorial debut Road to Nardo (being written by Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller).
