It was a wild reunion for the cast of The Hangover at the premiere of the franchise's third installment in LA last night. Bradley Cooper broke from the NYC set of American Hustle to attend the big event alongside Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis. Newly-engaged member of the crew, Justin Bartha, was also on hand for the night of fun. The guys showed love for their costar Ken Jeong and the waiting fans, many of whom Bradley stopped to snap pictures with before heading into the screening. The ladies of the Hangover trilogy, including Heather Graham, Sasha Barrese, Gillian Vigman, and Jamie Chung all hit the red carpet as well to celebrate the film's Friday release. It'll be the first big holiday-weekend Summer movie matchup, since Fast & Furious 6 also hits theaters. If you can't decide which sequel to spend your money on, these pictures of Bradley Cooper looking hot in the Hangover Part III might help!
Zach Galifianakis voices Humpty Dumpty in this week's Puss in Boots, and I recently had a chance to talk to the actor about the film and his web show, Between Two Ferns. Galifianakis has had lots of highlights on the interview spoof series, but when I asked about his favorite moment, he said that it was something that happened off screen when Jennifer Aniston was the guest on Between Two Ferns. Galifianakis said:
"My favorite moment was not on camera. But I had hired a Brad Pitt lookalike to do the Jennifer Aniston one, so he was waiting in the wings. We ended up not using him, because she didn't want that, and [joking] I don't completely understand why. So this Brad Pitt guy, the lookalike, I went up to him, and [said] 'Hey I'm sorry we didn't use you.' And as a joke, 'Maybe we use you some other time. Do you look like anybody else?' And he goes, without even skipping a beat, 'Colin Farrell.' So bizarre."
Bradley Cooper and his The Hangover Part II castmates Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, and Jamie Chung greeted fans at last night's Berlin premiere. The sequel, which hits theaters today, throws the wolf pack back into familiar circumstances after another bachelor party goes awry — read The Hangover Part II reviews to see what critics think of how the new installment compares to part one. The stars and director Todd Phillips had their first screening event last week on the West Coast, and made a stop in NYC for another showing earlier this week. Bradley managed to swing by SNL during his stay in the Big Apple, and joined host Justin Timberlake for the afterparty with Olivia Wilde. Bradley and Olivia were spotted sharing an intimate chat during the soiree, fueling rumors that they're dating.
The Hangover Part II is out this week, and Warner Bros. has released these of one-sheets featuring the famous Wolfpack. The banners are strikingly similar to the posters that were released to promote the first movie, which doesn't come as a surprise considering the trailer for The Hangover Part II seems to be following the original formula pretty closely. Still, it's fun to compare and contrast, so check out how the guys look then and now!
The cast of The Hangover Part II got together with their director, Todd Phillips, for a screening of the comedy in NYC yesterday. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis made the trip east following the premiere of their film in LA last week, and they kept the fun coming with an afterparty at the Top of the Standard. Something Borrowed's Colin Egglesfield was there to show his support as was a pregnant Ivanka Trump, who tweeted that the movie was "hilarious." Also on hand were Victoria's Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio and Selita Ebanks, enjoying a funny break from their recent press for the lingerie brand. The sequel comes out on Friday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend, and early The Hangover Part II reviews seem to suggest that it's worth taking a trip to the theater between your BBQs and beach games.
The many men of The Hangover Part II gathered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre last night for their big LA premiere. Bradley Cooper was dapper in a Tom Ford suit and flashed a big smile for photographers next to his costars Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms — they even had Crystal the Monkey there! Ken Jeong was one of the first down the carpet, and he spoke to us about his excitement at reuniting with the guys. He even admitted to being open to expanding his Mr. Chow character in a possible spinoff. Ken, who's actually an MD in real life, said his medical knowledge came in handy when some of his castmates came down with food poising while they filmed in Thailand! Ed Helms was likewise thrilled to get a meatier part in the sequel. His small-screen project, The Office, aired its season finale yesterday, and Ed revealed that he doesn't know what's next, but Steve Carell's rumored replacement, Catherine Tate, is a pro. The screening brought out plenty of famous faces, like cute couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard, Mike Tyson, and a super-pregnant Alyssa Milano. Kristen and Crystal shared an especially intimate moment. Stay tuned for more on today's PopSugar Rush!
We're just a couple weeks away from The Hangover Part II, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 comedy that made Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, and Zach Galifiankis household names. There's a lot riding on the second part of their story, and the guys sat down with Entertainment Weekly with director Todd Phillipps to talk about the perils of shooting in Thailand and why they'll always keep coming back for more Hangovers.
- Galifianakis on the script: "I remember thumbing through it, going, 'Oh God. Oh God.'"
- Cooper on filming in Bangkok: "It was the hardest shoot I’ve ever done for sure. Nothing ever even came close to it. I thought A-Team was brutal: I got injured and it was f*cking ing six months of . . . not even close! One criticism you could never make about this movie is that we just phoned it in. Even if it fails miserably, it’s not for lack of trying."
- On making the sequel out of love for each other:
BC: "There’s no other reason. If anything, why would you do it? There’s more downside than upside."
Phillips: "You can’t beat what you’ve done. You can only lose in this position. But we just love hanging out with each other."
Helms: [Laughs] "We’re going to be ramming Hangovers down America’s throat for the next three decades."
After a funny but ultra-brief teaser, we now a full trailer for The Hangover Part II. Just like the first film, the guys are on the verge of a wedding, but this time it's Stu's, and instead of Vegas, they're in Thailand.
Although the trailer is definitely funny and holds lots of promise for more outrageous humor (you can't go wrong with a face tattoo bit), there's no originality to this follow-up story. From the bachelor trip to the loss and subsequent search for one of their posse, the plot is exactly the same. Even the nature of the jokes is about the same, which makes me think this movie will have no surprises. I loved the first movie, and I still love this gang, but I wish that there would be more to look forward to come May 26 when the movie is released. Let me know if you agree when you read more
The teaser for The Hangover Part II is here! And judging by this first look, my previous assumptions about the film aren't that far off. For one, the boys have indeed added a monkey to their posse during their trip to Bangkok, yet Doug (Justin Bartha) is still no where to be seen. In fact, this footage only focuses on Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) — good news for those of you who prefer the boys without their fourth member.
The clip starts off by showing quick glimpses of the trio's dirty Thai digs, followed by a shot of them slowly strutting (set to Jay-Z, naturally). Keep in mind this is just a teaser, so we don't actually see any of Stu's wedding or those rumoured celebrity cameos, but it has me excited nonetheless! Take a look when you read more
Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis were in London last night for the premiere of their new movie Due Date. Zach made headlines recently when he appeared to smoke pot live on Bill Maher's show, though it's since been revealed this wasn't the case, but rumours he'll appear in Jason Segel's Muppet movie are true! Robert's been in the city filming Sherlock Homes 2 recently, and last night he walked the red carpet with his wife Susan while Zach stayed close to his four-legged friend — just as he did at the LA premiere.
