Cool Videos: The trailers for the Hangover are remarkably similar...

May. 27, 2011by:

A popular refrain among critics of THE HANGOVER, PART II is that the film is more or less just a remake of the original film. It follows the exact same beats, structure and story and just replaces Bangkok for Vegas. Heck, it even has the same trailer...

An eagle-eyed interwebber watched both trailers for the original HANGOVER and the sequel and noticed they're pretty much exactly the same. So he superimposed them onto one video so you can see exactly how similar they are...which is to say they're almost exactly alike.

Now this is an indictment on how the Hollywood marketing machine works just as it is an indictment on how similar the two HANGOVER films are but either way, it's pretty staggering to see it laid out like this. What's even more shocking is that nobody really noticed until now. Check it out for yourself below...

Not The Hangover trailer on the left

Apparently no one took 10 seconds to look up the original Hangover trailer, because if they did, they'd quickly realize that what is shown on the left above is NOT the trailer, it's just scenes from the movie matched up with the Part II trailer. Not nearly as impressive.

Just want to point out.

I'm not gonna defend the Hangover Part 2, because I agree with the fact that is was basically the same movie, but the Thing playing on the "Hangover 1 Trailer" screen, is not any trailer ever released for the film, it's just all the clips from the first movie that match the scenes from the second put in an order that match the order in the second trailer. This video isn't the two trailers running side by side, it's the trailer for The Hangover Part 2 running next to clips from the first film

And seriously, every single episode of Breaking Bad is basically Bryan Cranston playing the same character with cancer. Where's the originality AMC?

Dark Knight is basically just a ripoff of Batman Begins. Same hero, same cast, same characters. They think putting the joker in can hide that?

Omaigawd it even has the same actors. WHAT A RIPOFF. I'm sure this wasn't intentional at all, either. It's a coincidence that can be attributed to how similar the movies are, that the TRAILERS even mirror each other. I also have some great beachfront property in South Dakota you might enjoy.

....and nothing is less cool than giving people 50 thumbs down just cause they have an opinion you dont like. That's why it's called "an opinion". Discuss what you feel and think, not bash the person.

I love the guy below who says

"I know it's cool to hate on everything, but". Buddy, on this site, nothing is less cool - nothing gets more thumbs down than any kind of criticism against things not communally sanctioned to be criticised. And just because it's logical that The Hangover would get a similar sequel doesn't make it "hating" to point out when it gets a basically identical remake.

'What's even more shocking is that nobody really noticed until now.' It was pointed out on Cracked.com about a month ago. Here's the article, [link] Yeah nice one joblo, up to date.

Yeah I never notice. But thats not going to stop me from seeing it. You know the old saying if it's not broke don't fix it. WHy would they change the whole story. and it's all suppose to be the same the movie's all take place in one time frame.

Saw it in a sold out theather at midnight. It was funny. Not anywhere near as funny and original as the first. I suppose it was entertaining. Nowhere near as brilliant as "The Sting 2"

I just think it's funny that nobody has noticed that that isn't the trailer for The Hangover. It's just clips from the first movie cut together to show that the movie has a lot of similarities to the second.

Really, I know it's cool to hate on everything, but realistically this movie wasn't that bad. Is it almost identical to the first, yes. It's also pretty funny. there is no way Hangover would not get a sequel with the amount of money it made on a fairly low budget. The forumla worked the first time and is working again, especially for the masses. I suppose some of you will complain nonetheless but really? are you honestly surprised?

That's ridiculous! Insane how identical they both are. Sickning to know they're going to make a bunch of money, re-hashing the same movie.

This trailer mash up is 100% accurate, unfortunately. Having wasted my time and money on the Hangover II, I'm pretty sure you could play both movies side by side in their entirety and you would get the same results.

That is pathetic. Biggest money grab I have ever seen and if the early indications are to be believed, everyone is buying into it. Maybe this can start a new trend. Essentially remaking the same hit movie with the same cast. Who needs to go through all the trouble of new casting for remakes and reboots when you can just use the same cast as before.

The Hangover Part 2 is a great movie. I don't care if it's a remake of the first one or follows the same formula. I think the sequel is just as good as the original and is the funniest movie I have seen this year.
