Though we’ve seen set photos aplenty from the anticipated upcoming sequels The Hangover Part III and Red 2, the first official images from both films have now landed online. The images from the third and presumably final entry in the Hangover trilogy promise more madness, as we see an Abbey Road-ish pic of The Wolfpack (ie. Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Bradley Cooper) set against the silhouette of Las Vegas. Though we’ll definitely see the group travel back to Vegas in the sequel, the city is “just one of their stops,” so we’re (hopefully) not in for yet another rehash of the first film.
As for the Red sequel, Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot steps into the director’s chair this time around, and this first image gives us a look at Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich striking the “cool guys don’t look at explosions” pose. Hit the jump to check out images from both films and for story details regarding The Hangover 3 from director Todd Phillips. The Hangover Part III opens on May 24, 2013, while Red 2 hits theaters on August 2, 2013.
Speaking with EW, co-write director Todd Phillips had this to say about the third Hangover pic:
”The Hangover Part III is Alan’s story,” says director Todd Phillips of Zach Galifianakis’ character. ”He’s going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.”
Phillips also teased more ridiculousness in store for Ken Jeong’s character, Leslie Chow:
“He’s darker than ever,” says Phillips, who adds that the movie is ”a fitting end to this three-part opera of mayhem and bad decisions.”
Dean Parisot also spoke briefly to EW about Red 2:
“All of those great Bond and Bourne movies you’ve seen, we go into that world and have those kind of set pieces. It’s just our characters that are completely ludicrous.”
