A pleasant, sunny evening in London last night was torn by screams and hysteria as The Hangover Part III premiered in Leicester Square. The cast were all present, along with director Todd Phillips, to launch the film's UK premiere, but miraculously none of them mutilated themselves or one another, had a close encounter with a hooker or molested a wild animal. At least, that we know of. Perhaps that was the after-party.
This third - and, we're told, final - instalment of the series sees Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) stage an intervention for Alan (Zach Galifianakis), who is off his meds and not doing too well following the death of his father (Jeffrey Tambor). Unfortunately, all goes wrong when they're kidnapped by Marshall (John Goodman), who holds Doug hostage and orders the rest to find Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) and find the gold Chow stole from Marshall, or he'll kill Doug. Cue disasters galore.
The film also stars Heather Graham, returning for the first time since the first film, Mike Epps and Melissa McCarthy. The Hangover Part III hits cinemas today.
