Warner Bros. has released a five-minute featurette for The Hangover Part II. I watched it not because I wanted to get a head-start on the jokes or to hear about how the actors had such a fun time making the movie. I wanted someone to explain how this movie isn’t simply a retreat of the first film. Perhaps some people want more of the same and that’s fine, but a change of setting and some new shenanigans may not be enough to carry the movie. I get incredibly nervous every time I hear Stu say “I can’t believe this is happening again!” Unfortunately, this featurette features no explanation and it actually has a potentially major spoiler if you’re checking the background for a certain character.
But if you want to hear the cast talk about how the movie is better without scaring off the people who are afraid of getting anything different from their sequels, then hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis. The Hangover Part II opens May 26th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Hangover Part II:
Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
