First Poster for 'The Hangover Part III' Takes a Cue from 'Harry Potter'
Hopefully this is just the first of a few posters to come. With The Hangover Part III slated to arrive on May 24th, it's time for the hype machine to begin. While the first trailer is slated to arrive sometime tomorrow, the first official poster has been discovered online thanks to IMP Awards. Taking a cue from the teaser poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, we have Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong facing off with Las Vegas in ruins in the background. Though we're not sure of specifics, director Todd Phillips did say the story, "brings the group together when something from the first movie comes back to haunt them." Who knows what kind of trouble The Wolf Pack will get into in this final romp?
Here's the first poster for Todd Phillips The Hangover Part III, first found on IMPAwards:
The Hangover Part III is directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School) from a script he co-wrote with Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II, Identity Thief) This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham and Jeffrey Tambor reprise their roles from the previous films, and will also be joined by John Goodman and Melissa McCarthy. The third and final chapter of The Hangover franchise from Warner Bros. will hit theaters on Memorial Day, May 24th.

Okay, that's pretty funny. I'm looking forward to this regardless of the posters anyways, but pretty funny. Don't really get why people disliked the second so much. Seems like 'running gags' are taboo now, replaced with the new favourite of film cynics everywhere: rehash. Geez, it was just one sequel, it's not like they're on part seven. (Author's note: Saw 7 was actually not bad)

My disappointment with the second one was I felt it could have been so much better. It would have been really interesting to see the group dealing with a different type of situation.

Hmm, I can't remember what the B-plot was, I remember them going to a highrise building to meet a businessman or something? What kind of situation? The hangover part is pretty essential.

I hope they parody more posters, one Dark Knight Rises poster parody would be awesome xD

Hangover 2 was a piece of sh*t -- and this poster leads me to believe more unfunny sh*t is on its way.

This poster is why everyone should be excited for the redemption that this movie will be.

They need to hire better writers. Mazin is terrible.

Even if this film turns out to be the worst movie of the 21st century, this will still be one of the most amusing posters I have ever seen. A++.
