Hangover 2The boys are back in town, and they're ready to party. Or, at least the monkey is.

Six new character posters for "The Hangover: Part II" have hit the web, and we're glad that Warner Bros. is finally taking a second look at our favorite people in the flick beyond just the wolf pack. That means Doug, Mr. Chow and, yes, our unnamed little simian, all have their own posters for us to drool over.

Head past the jump to check out our breakdown of the new posters!

The Hangover Part II

Did you have a relaxing time over the long holiday weekend? Good, because the boys of "The Hangover Part II" sure as hell didn't. Two photos from the upcoming comedy film hit the Web -- the first (above) courtesy of director Todd Phillips' Facebook page and the second (below) thanks to Cinemablend -- and judging from what we're seeing here, the guys aren't having the most subdued Thai vacation of all time.

The first film was a total balls-to-the-wall comedy, during which plenty of ridiculous questions were raised with even more ridiculous answers. What happened last night? Why is Doug missing? Where did Stu's tooth go? Where did that baby come from? Why is there a tiger? Do we really want to know these answers?

Well, it looks like "Part II" is going to follow up on that winning formula. These new photos certainly raise some questions of their own, and we'll dissect them after the jump. Read More...

With all the casting rumors swirling around "The Hangover 2," it's hard to know exactly what in the name of Mike Tyson's pet tiger will be going on in the sequel to the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time.

Is Liam Neeson playing the role of the deranged Bangkok tattoo artist that was originally intended for Mel Gibson? Or will that part go to Paul Giamatti, who along with former President Clinton, just signed on for a cameo? And what happened to Heather Graham's stripper with a heart of gold and her son nicknamed "Carlos"?

The Hangover 2Last week, director Todd Phillips confirmed a few bare-bones details about his sequel to The Hangover," the 2008 film that launched the stars of Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis and went on to become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. "It takes place in Bangkok and L.A.," Phillips said, adding, "There's gonna be some f--ked-up surprises."

Today, we have our first look at "The Hangover 2" in the form of a photo from the Ontario, California, set. The pic shows our boys Cooper, Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha getting ready to hop a plane to Thailand from the Ontario Airport. (Yeah, we know we said the film is set in Bangkok and L.A. -- Ontario Airport doubles for LAX).

In addition to proving that production on the film is underway, the image is also notable in that it confirms that Justin Bartha -- whose involvement in the picture had heretofore been only a rumor -- is indeed on board for part deux. Check out the "Hangover 2" photo after the jump. Read More...

The HangoverFinally, there's some news on the upcoming sequel to "The Hangover" that isn't just the stars teasing us with information. Will "The Hangover 2" actually take place in outer space? Probably not. But director Todd Phillips did at least confirm to Empire that the film will partially be set in Bangkok.

"It takes place in Bangkok and L.A.," he teases. "There's gonna be some f--ked-up surprises."

That means that, yes, both Mr. Chow and (possibly) Mike Tyson's tiger will return in their natural habitat in the upcoming sequel, which is set to start filming later this month. Phillips confirms that Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper, as well asKen Jeong, will be back for more insanity. Read More...

FROM MTV.COM According to the Internet, Zac Efron will have a role in the upcoming "The Hangover 2." However, according to the film's star, Justin Bartha, you shouldn't believe everything the Internet tells you — after all, if you did, you'd also be under the impression that Robert Pattinson might be joining Efron in the sequel to last year's hit comedy.

"Other people have said that, and we were at the Critics' Choice Awards the other day and I'll quote [director] Todd Phillips when someone else asked [if Zac Efron is in the film] — he said, 'IMDB is not the Wall Street Journal. It is run by a 15-year-old boy in Tampa. So be careful what you read,' "Bartha told MTV News on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday.

As we were reminded recently when we caught up with Todd Phillips, director of “The Hangover,” everyone involved with the sequel to 2009’s most surprising hit is keeping their lips zipped. All he’d reveal to us is that there’ll be more Bartha.

But, as those who’ve already enjoyed the four-buddies-in-Vegas flick will remember, a key subplot involved scandal-plagued boxer Mike Tyson. And in one of the many other interviews Phillips has done promoting this week’s “Hangover” DVD release, the filmmaker stated (joked?) that he wants to use the sequel to give the same treatment to Tiger Woods.

Yep, that Tiger Woods. Read More...

For years, Todd Phillips –- arguably the best comedy director in the business right now whose name doesn’t rhyme with Bud Apatow -– was pestered by fanboys and film writers alike trying to get the deets on “Old School 2.” Now, the good news is that people seem to have finally stopped asking about a sequel to the Will Ferrell/Vince Vaughn/Luke Wilson hard-partying hit; the bad news, however, is that it’s because they’re all asking for the latest on the sequel to this past summer’s Bradley Cooper/Ed Helms/Zach Galifianakis hard-partying hit.

“Right now we’re figuring all that stuff out,” the affable Phillips responded this week when asked about a second installment of “The Hangover,” which hits DVD and Blu-Ray this week. “Don’t put me on the spot.” Read More...

Before "The Hangover" became one of the biggest success stories of 2009, it was just a Warner Bros. comedy starring that guy who cheats from "He's Just Not That Into You," the dude from "The Office," and some short, fat guy with a beard.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis weren't putting all their eggs in one basket, because I'm fairly certain none of them expected "The Hangover" to gross over $459 million in the worldwide box office. In fact, the stars of "The Hangover" have been some of the busiest guys around Hollywood over the past year. Here's a look at what else they've been up to since "The Hangover" hit theaters in June -- beyond, of course, preparing for 2011's "The Hangover 2." Read More...

The Hangoverby Gabriel Lipson

After inflicting a hurricane of damage throughout Las Vegas, "The Hangover"'s inebriated foursome somehow fled the city without any major legal repercussions. Sure they'd owe reparations to Caesar's Palace, but cleverly placed plot devices and bureaucratic loopholes allowed the men to skirt the law.

Imagine now for just a moment that the Nevada legal system worked as it should have. If the law had won, how much would Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) have lost? Read More...
