We're only a few months away from "The Hangover 2" and undoubtedly, director Todd Phillips is in the thick of it to get it done so you'll understand why the first teaser for the film is quite short. But no matter, the returning trio of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis walking in slo-mo to Jay-Z's "Reminder" is all that's needed to get us excited.

A handful of new images to share: first up is a new still from Todd Phillip's "The Hangover" sequel which shows Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis getting amongst it and clearly exhibiting two previously discussed physical transformations in Helm's Mike Tyson-esque face tattoo and Galifianakis' shaved head. Things have been extremely quiet on the marketing end for the film but all of that will soon change with the first trailer set to be unveiled this week.

Much speculation has surrounded Todd Phillip's highly anticipated sequel to "The Hangover" but other than some casting news, a few set photos and the recent revelation that Bill Clinton isn't making a cameo in the film, the project has managed to remain relatively secretive. Speaking with MTV at the Sundance Film Festival, though, actor Paul Giamatti -- one of few additions to the sequel -- has provided a little color to the bare details that are already out there.

Okay, so Todd Phillips' "Due Date," opening this Friday, wasn't quite the gut-busting comedy we were hoping for, but that doesn't matter because in about seven months, the director will get another stab at the apple when he drops "The Hangover 2."

Review: 'Due Date' Should Have Been Terminated Early

At some point between its initial release last summer and today, Todd Phillips' "The Hangover" has gone from being an alright, somewhat amateurish guys-night-out comic fantasy to, like, the funniest movie ever (it also, staggeringly, became the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time). The fact that we can't place a single noteworthy scene or memorable line, a little more than a year later, says something, especially because other things about the film still linger unhappily such as its somewhat slack pacing and icky misogynistic overtones.

Liam Neeson Scene Will Have "Gravity"; Phillips Still Working On John Belushi Biopic With Zach Galifianakis In Mind"The Hangover 2" quickly went from highly anticipated sequel shooting somewhat under the radar to a picture that now has a neverending stream of news coming out about the film. You would think Edward and Bella were in this thing, but we suppose that's what happens when you attempt to cast Mel Gibson in an ill-advised cameo. Combine that with press rounds for "Due Date" happening shortly after all of this broke and you have the perfect storm, so consider this a wrap up of the news of all things Todd Phillips-related in the past 48 hours or so.

Todd Phillips Says Decision Boosted Morale On SetWith all the fuss in the last week over the hiring of Mel Gibson for a key cameo as a tattoo artist in the Bangkok-set sequel to the surprise comedy hit "The Hangover," and his subsequent swift booting from the role, following protests by the cast and crew, in favor of the more stable, less repellent Liam Neeson, one thing's been forgotten: were the poor little racist's feelings hurt by the controversy? The answer, unsurprisingly, is yes.
