'The Hangover' series of films have been two of the most financially successful comedies to ever hit the big screen. The first movie that came out in 2009 was a surprise hit, and a sequel quickly followed in 2011. Now there's a third 'Hangover' in the works, and co-star Ken Jeong will be featured in an expanded role.
Though we're in the think of the summer blockbuster movie season, it's never too early to start looking ahead to Oscar season. Case in point: the new Bradley Cooper / Jennifer Lawrence trailer for 'Silver Linings Playbook' which looks like it could be a candidate for more than a few awards.
'The Hangover 3' is happening. Though 'The Hangover, Part II' was basically a remake of the original film and mostly disappointed critics, the sequel made a ton of money (it was the fourth highest grossing film of 2011) and WB and director Todd Phillips have been quietly planning the third and final installment. And, as it turns out, 'The Hangover 3' may be happening sooner than you thought.
It's good to be a rich heir to a powerful family. It means if you want to become a movie producer, it's no problem. And for Megan Ellison it means that if she wants to see a movie, then it's something that she can finance without sweating. And so we may see David O'Russell's 'American Bulls---' with Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.
It's been awhile since we've heard any rumblings about Legendary and Warner Bros Pictures' 'Here There Be Monsters,' a project that's been simmering on the back burner for a couple of years. Now we see some new life in the project as they slip in the right director, and possibly the right actor, for their picture.
Though the response to 'The Hangover Part II' was tepid, the film made $581 million worldwide, which meant that a third film was all but assured. Warner Brothers confirmed that certainty today with a new release date for 'The Hangover Part 3' plus word from director Todd Phillips told that it will be the series finale.
