Three Character Banners for Todd Phillips' The Hangover

We've already seen a few trailers and we already know they're making a sequel, but seeing these guys still cracks me up. While I'm thinking Funny People may be the best comedy of this summer, I've got a good feeling that The Hangover will be a close second, giving Judd Apatow a run for his money. Warner Brothers sent over these three new character banners today - one for each of the lead guys: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis - and I thought I'd feature them. Any time I see anything from this, it always makes me wish I was back in Vegas. There's always plenty of mayhem to be had when you're in Sin City!
A Las Vegas-set comedy centered around three groomsmen who lose their about-to-be-wed buddy named Doug during their drunken misadventures, then must retrace their steps in order to find him.
The Hangover is directed by comedy veteran Todd Phillips, of Road Trip, Old School, Starsky & Hutch, and School for Scoundrels previously. The screenplay was co-written by writing partners Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, of the comedies Rebound, Full of It, Four Christmases, and the upcoming Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Warner Brothers is bringing The Hangover to theaters everywhere on June 5th this summer.
