Latest Hangover III Trailer Crashes In
The search for Spock... sorry, Chow

As if you could forget, the Wolfpack is back. We’ve had one main trailer for The Hangover Part III and now here comes the second, which boasts some new footage and a proper idea of what the plot is about, beyond “the guys take a road trip.” Have a look below and at the new international poster below that.

It would appear that, in the wake of his father’s death (and even before) Zach Galifianakis’ man-child Alan has gone off his meds, acting weirder than ever. Which is saying something, given that it’s Alan. So Pack pals Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) stage an intervention, aiming to whisk him off to rehab at New Horizons.

Yet en route, they’re ambushed and cornered by John Goodman’s vengeful villain, who is chasing Mr Chow (Ken Jeong) for stealing a hefty haul of cash. Holding Doug as hostage, Goodman sends the lads out to find Chow and bring him in, a mission that will take them to Tijuana and their old stomping ground of Las Vegas, among other places.

While all the ads so far have promised that this will be a different brand of wacky hijinks, we can’t help but worry that elements like the kidnapped Doug, Chow going crazy and everyone crawling around Vegas will stick closely to the previous films. Still, hopefully there will be plenty of fresh laughs to be had as director Todd Phillips wraps up the trilogy.

Should you be in the mood for more Hangover stuff, a couple of new posters are online, and can be seen below - along with the previously released ones.

The Hangover Part III will descend into our cinemas on May 23.

RE: Me neither
L: Filmfan 2 Speechless as to the appeal of these movies. Completely overhyped, unfunny shite and this looks like more of the same. No laughs in that trailer whatsoever. e - good to see you are still posting in these forums. And as ever I agree... More

For John Goodman alone...
I smell a future three star rating for this movie, just because the second was so awful. Perhaps the trailer isn't so funny because these movies rely heavily on swear words for comedy. More

Good for a laugh
Will stick closely to the feel of the first 2. Funeral instead of wedding to set things off and give Alan the chance to make another bad speech. The writers probably felt that Doug ACTUALLY BEING kidnapped this time would be a daring stroke of genius originality, but meh as long as it's funny enough. Chow has been overused. More

I didn't chuckle once at this trailer.
John Goodman will be the best thing in it as usual. More

I'm actually looking forward to this... the second one was shit, but there were some funny moments, and this has a completely new(ish) story... It could be worth a few yucks More
