‘The Hangover Part 3′ Images and Plot Details: The Wolfpack’s Back in Vegas

The Hangover 3 Begins Production The Hangover Part 3 Images and Plot Details: The Wolfpacks Back in Vegas

Merely the news that The Hangover Part III won’t have the plot format as its predecessors gives the threequel a heads-up on Part II (and The Wolfpack’s all-too-familiar shenanigans therein). Instead, Phil, Stu and Alan are hitting the road for a wild trip that includes pig-masked bandits, psychotic Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) dressed (disguised?) as an officer of the law – and the scene of their first booze-fueled crimes, Las Vegas.

New official images from Hangover 3.0 tease The Wolfpack heading back to Sin City, as well as the (even-more) armed and dangerous Mr. Chow. Meanwhile, director Todd Phillips has spilled some additional details about the film; including, whose funeral The Wolfpack was attending in previously-released set photos.

Phillips’ original movie sees Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zack Galifianakis) running around Vegas, after a night of inebriated debauchery leaves their groom-to-pal Doug (Justin Bartha) missing. It was a surprise smash hit back in 2009 and so, a sequel was quickly assembled in the hopes of bottling lightning a second time. Part II played musical chairs with certain characters and the setting but otherwise, it might as well’ve been a remake – though, that didn’t prevent the film from grossing $581 million around the globe (and guaranteeing Part III in the process).

Here’s what Phillips offered EW about the third installment:

“The Hangover Part III is Alan’s story. He’s going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.”

Those with good memories might remember Galifianakis mentioning last year that Hangover Part III sees Alan’s buddies freeing him from a mental institution. Until further notice, it remains possible that Alan could indeed suffer a breakdown – following his father’s passing – that lands him in confinement; not to mention, sees The Wolfpack on a crazy adventure that takes them to Los Angeles, Tijuana and eventually Vegas after (to quote the EW report) “something from the first movie comes back to haunt them.”

Check out the first images from The Hangover Part III (click for larger version):

While the Vegas image from Hangover 3 isn’t exactly enlightening (Abbey Road reference aside), the latter photo reveals a Mr. Chow who’s “darker than ever,” according to Phillips. Jeong – who likewise went fully-insane on the third season of Community – will appear alongside John Goodman as a new antagonist, with returning players Mike Tyson and Heather Graham as heart-of-gold stripper Jade from the first film. (Is she what “comes back to haunt” The Wolfpack?)

Lastly, Phillips describes the movie as ‘‘a fitting end to this three-part opera of mayhem and bad decisions.” Do you agree, based on what we’ve learned so far?


The Hangover Part III opens in theaters on May 24th, 2013.

  1. Sounds like a whole lot more fun than Part II anyway…

  2. It’d be fresher if there wasn’t so much shoehorning of characters.

  3. i will never forgive them for the f**kery that was part 2.

  4. Sounds like its the whole same story of the first one..:(

  5. The movies are Funny. True part 2 was basicly the same outline as the first but it had it’s moments. The third will still get my money. I rarely go see comedys. About the only ones , I own are Ted and Hangover 1 & 2.

  6. John Goodman…pig masked bandits…Vegas…this is gonna be one helluva summer entertainer!

  7. I saw Ted this weekend and was very underwhelmed. The best scenes were already shown in theaters (except some of those scenes with Sam Jones).

    I have high hopes for Hangover 3, but ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ still tops my list!

  8. check out the videos of the hangover 3 being filmed in las vagas.

    go to youtube

  9. i can not wait for this movie to come out! i LOVE both of the hangover movies! so excited!

    • the cow jumped over the moon twice aparently and now they are gonna make him do it for a third time. i mean they have already made two movies the same who can tell the third one wont be the same as well. all im sayin is that they should have stopped at two

      • why do you hate the hangover movies so much?

        • i dont hate them its just they are all the same and i was a little disapointed. i just dont want the third one to be the same

          • Then don’t watch , keep out the way!!

  10. All the same? You mean all 2 of them? Three isn’t out yet, it may be nothing like the first 2.

  11. All the same? You mean all 2 of them? Three isn’t out yet, it may be nothing like the first 2.

  12. Hangover part one and two are my favorite movies of all time. I could watch them everyday. I can’t wait until part three is out.

  13. Yes!
