First Hangover Part II teaser shows us quotes, walking, Thailand

02.24.2011

I'm not quite sure what the point of teaser trailers are. I guess they drum up buzz around a project when you weren't thinking of it previously, but they often feature so little actual content they barely seem worth it.

The first "trailer" for THE HANGOVER PART II is out, and you can watch it below and see what I mean. Is a bunch of quotes about how funny the first movie was and a slow motion shot of the gang walking better than nothing? I guess so, but it certainly doesn't give me as a writer covering the film anything new to discuss. I'm excited for the film, but what's there to talk about here?

So here it is, THE HANGOVER PART II in four seconds of moving pictures. See it in HD over at Apple.

Extra Tidbit: Is Justin Bartha still in this? I swear he was from the set shots I've seen. Do they really lose him again?

The Hangover: Part 2

It's weird that I've read how Justin Bartha is going to have a larger role in the sequel - yet in the trailer, he is no where in sight. I hope he does have a bigger role this time around.

I wasn't a huge fan of the first one. It was just another Todd Phillips version of a few far superior comedies from the 80s mashed together, with a little Dude, Where's My Car? tossed in for good measure. Who knows, though, I might like this one.

Making a prediction...

This is how i think its going to be:
Hangover 1 = big success.
Hangover 2 = they take the movie overseas which takes away the heart of the movie, and turns it into a weak sequel.
Hangover 3 = they take it back to vegas, because thats what the audience wants to see, and turns out to be a good (but not better than the first) movie and redeems the franchise.

Thats right, it'll turn out exactly like the Oceans trilogy. MARK MY WORDS

Solid prediction though 'Oceans 12' was also a stylistic departure from the original. Soderbergh seemed to channeling 70s foreign films and the pacing and plot suffered.

If 'Hangover 2' sticks with the formula of the original it may work better than it should. Vegas in part 3 though is probably a given.

I dont think vegas was the heart of the first one, to me it was the characters, which are all returning

The first movie was a fun little diversion, but I don't think I'll ever understand why it blew up the way it did with every person and their grandmothers (literally) catching it not only in theaters but also on home video.

Heaven forbid a trailer not show the entire movie. I mean, Bad Teacher seemed like an ok film until I saw the whole movie in the trailer.

Less is more.

No Mel, No Me

Mel Gibson would've been the only thing that would've interested me in this sure-to-disappoint sequel.

Simply put: No Mel, no ME. But who gives a shit. It'll be a huge hit anyway.

I on the other hand will be seeing THE BEAVER again instead that weekend.

I agree. I think the first film was a one-time thing. The sequel'll just be more of the same. Only not as funny.

It's not that bad, but I have to think the marketing plan is all wrong. By sticking up all that praise they're already setting a very high bar for this film.

Ok...no more trailers please and I'm ready. I went to the first on the great buzz I read 6 months prior, and thought, "Shit. If the studio wants a sequel 6 months before the 1st releases...I'm in."

Same thing here...little to no footage until the weekend of the opening. I know that's asking a lot, but I think they can do it here.

So many of the cameos and plot points have already been spoiled, it was good to see a teaser that ruins nothing and just makes you excited to see the movie.

I had lost interest when the whole Gibson thing happened.

But I can't help but smile at it.

And I think this movie has some balls if they really lose Doug again.

@Paul Tassi - Movie marketing cycles start earlier than ever before because of the insanely crowded market place, so a simple teaser is better than nothing at all when it comes to building awareness. Most of the time it's dictated by lack of footage due to the film being buried in post or still shooting.

The average movie goer isn't drooling over a release schedule like us at JoBlo, so they see this in the theater, or on ET, or mentioned on Yahoo! News and they know to look out for it this

The average movie goer isn't drooling over a release schedule like us at JoBlo, so they see this in the theater, or on ET, or mentioned on Yahoo! News and they know to look out for it this summer.

As for the teaser itself, I think it has a decent rug pull and fun play on the omnipresent prestige marketing we're seeing around Oscar time.

well it's official

The only way to make a monkey funnier is to put him in size appropriate clothing and make him seem like people. :D

It's a sequel to a comedy, all you need is a teaser. If you loved the 1st one, which many did, your ass is already in the seat on name alone

Great teaser for hopefully good sequel to a decent comedy that still makes me laugh. Although isn't this a little late for a teaser? This comes out in 3 months. They should've put out a teaser months ago, with a full-length trailer hitting now.

The Hangover was good...once. After you see it, repeat viewings just don't hold up. That's rather required for a "Comedy Classic." I am sure The Hangover II will be funny, but hopefully funny on REPEAT viewings as well.

Cool teaser. The monkey walking in front of them was funny.

I can't wait for this movie. The original is one of my favorite movies of all time and I am sure this one will be just as funny.
