In 2009, The Hangover proved that an R-rated comedy could pull in big money at the box office after raking in over $450 million worldwide. Since then, this has become a marquee franchise for Warner Brothers, with a sequel coming out just two years later, and another installment planned for next summer. And while The Hangover Part II got slammed by critics for featuring the same exact plot as its predecessor, director Todd Phillips has promised something different for this final Hangover movie.
In a quote on Entertainment Weekly, Phillips revealed that The Hangover Part III will focus on Zach Galifianakis’ character and said that, ''He's going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.'' The site also debuted two new images from the film below, with one of them referencing the album cover to Abbey Road by The Beatles.
The Hangover Part III will be in theaters on May 24, 2013.
