"The Hangover 3" trailer was released recently, and The Wolfpack, consisting of Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Doug (Justin Bartha) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) are all returning to end the trilogy. After the death of Alan's father, the friends hit the road, but not before stopping in Las Vegas one more time.
"The Hangover 3" trailer shows off many of the returning characters, including former stripper Jade (Heather Graham), Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) and Black Doug (Mike Epps). In addition, new actors have been added to the franchise, including an appearance from Melissa McCarthy and John Goodman.
The trailer, which clocks in at about two minutes, doesn't reveal much of the plot, but does allude to some of the movie's hijinks. Alan shares a lollipop with Melissa McCarthy's character, John Goodman points a finger in the men's faces, and somehow later in the preview, Alan gets hold of a giraffe.
"I told myself I would never come back," Stu tells Phil and Alan.
"Don't worry. It all ends tonight," Phil responds.
The tagline "It All Ends" seems to be the angle for the film's promotional campaign— the flyer for "The Hangover Part III" doesn't have the title, but instead spoofs the Harry Potter movie's final installment with Chow and Alan face to face.
The finale to the highly-grossing comedy movies is also different because, unlike the last two films, it has nothing to do with a marriage. It focuses far more on Galifianakis' character— a far cry from the first "Hangover" film, where he functioned mainly for funny one-liners.
"The Hangover Part III is Alan's story. He's going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has," Todd Philips, the film's director, told NME.com.
If the movie's previous installments are any indication, "The Hangover Part III" could do very well in theaters. Parts I and II were both highly successful at the box office, making $467 million and $580 million, respectively.
"The Hangover Part II" will be released on May 24, Memorial Day Weekend.
