#19: THE HANGOVER PART II
Director: Todd Phillips
Stars: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Jamie Chung, Ken Jeong, Liam Neeson
Release Date: May 26
Why we’re excited: It’s time to stop wishing for an Old School sequel, folks, because director Todd Phillips has moved on to something bigger and much more profitable: the 2009 comedy behemoth known as The Hangover. Once that pic crossed the $44 million mark in its opening weekend, a follow-up was inevitable, and that’s cool with us. Can Zack Galifianakis’s one-man wolf pack break comedy records once again? Honestly, we’re just hoping it’s not an unoriginal, quasi-Hangover remake. Both the sequel’s Bangkok setting (where Ed Helms’s character’s wedding is being held) and fresh faces (Liam Neeson and the gorgeous Jamie Chung) promise at least some jokes that aren’t rehashed.
