There's probably mixed feelings going around about the conclusion this Thursday, when the third film opens, of "The Hangover" trilogy. For some, the films have been among the most seminal comedies of their generation, making Bradley Cooper an A-lister, and introducing the world at large to the talents of Zach Galafianakis. For others, they've been increasingly lazy, misogynistic, fratty films the popularity of which will never quite be explained.

The Hangover Part III
The law of comedy movie marketing dictates that, about a week to ten days before your R-rated movie is released, you put out a red-band trailer. It's a good chance to get some of your best gags, or at least some of your sweariest and/or boobiest moments out before a crowd.

While plot details (such as they are for this franchise) have been kept secret, director Todd Phillips recently teased the driving force behind "The Hangover Part III" and how it ties into the first movie. "It's very much all one big story of [how that moment when] Alan buys drugs from Black Doug in the first movie basically fucked their lives up for six years," he told THR. But it would appear that the Dougs have once again been potentially mixed up.

With "The Hangover Part III" arriving next month, and now a massive, R-rated comedy franchise, it's easy to forget that way back in 2009, this movie was not expected to be a hit. Oh sure, Warner Bros. knew it would do well (it didn't cost them very much either) but they couldn't have predicted how well it was going to do when arguably the biggest name in the cast was Heather Graham. Guys like Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis had not taken off yet, but over $460 million dollars worldwide later, their lives changed instantly. But what if the casting had gone a different way?

The Playlist's Most Anticipated Blockbusters Of The 2013 Summer Season
Ah, summer. That time of year marked by long days, short skirts, and the application of sunscreen. It’s the season where even the most hardened cineaste can put aside their Criterion Collection discs, if only for a moment, and get excited about the jazzy, visual effects-driven blockbusters coming down the pike. The line between “summer” and “any other time of the year,” in terms of movies, keeps getting blurrier and blurrier, with big-budget studio fare like “Oz the Great and Powerful” and “Oblivion” coming out in the spring (we had a Michael Bay movie open in April, for crying out loud – before this it was questionable whether or not he even existed outside of June or July).

This seems to be the week for filmmakers to make assessments on their past work. Yesterday, Michael Bay apologized for "Armageddon," revealing that the studio took the movie out of his hands and if he had his way, he would've completely reshot the final third. And today, Todd Phillips comes out swinging against folks who used "The Hangover Part 2" as a punching bag, criticizing the movie's lack of originality and carbon copying of the first film's template.

Hangover III
Phil, Alan and Stu. We partied with them in Las Vegas, got wasted with them in Thailand, and now it's all coming back home with "The Hangover Part III," a movie in which they want to burn the gambling mecca where they started their journey to the ground. The first trailer set up the pins -- will this one knock 'em down?

Oh, so you didn't think that first trailer for "The Hangover Part III" was so good, huh? Well, Warner Bros. is gonna take another swing at the plate later this week when they drop a newer (and hopefully better) one, and in the lead up to that, they're sharing a bit of marketing material to build the buzz.
