To date we’ve only seen a few images from The Hangover 2 (or The Hangover Part II as it is being refered as), however in a recent interview director Todd Phillips said the teaser trailer will finally be released next week.
“We have a teaser trailer that I just finished color for yesterday night, so that’ll come out next week,” Todd Phillips told MTV News on Friday (February 18) while promoting the DVD release of “Due Date.” “And I think it comes out in theaters on ‘Hall Pass,’ which should be next Friday.”
“We’ve had, like, one photo out, and that’s just because we finished shooting on New Year’s Day, and the movie comes out on Memorial Day,” the writer/director said. “It’s really just a crazy-tight schedule.”
The footage will hardly offer a comprehensive dive into what the film is all about. “It’s truly a teaser, so it might end up frustrating more than solving questions,” he told us. “I love it. It’s a true tease, if that makes sense. It’s just one of those things that’s gonna make you go, ‘OK, let’s see what more they have.’ It’s to pique interest and to remind people what’s coming down the pike.”
A ‘true teaser’ suggests that they won’t be revealing all of the funny gags in the trailer, which is a good thing. Nobody wants to be tired of them by the time the movie hits in May.
The Hangover 2 sees Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travelling to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. Liam Neeson also appears at some point as a tattoo artist.
