10 Things You Didn't Know About HANGOVER Movies
On 23 May 2013
For those who are very excited to see Hangover III this weekend and for those who are not so sure if it’s going to worth the ticket, we show you few things about the franchise that will take make you take a decision.
1.You remember Ed Helms’ character Stu losing his tooth in the first installment. For that scene he didn’t need a special trick. Helms’ tooth was never there in the first place. His incisor never grew in so he has a tooth implant. When filming he just removed his tooth.
2.Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr. were considered for Marshall role (played by John Goodman)
3.Mel Gibson was supposed to play the tattoo artist, but the idea was later dropped following protests from the cast and crew. He was replaced by Liam Neeson who later was unavailable for a reshoot so it finally went to Nick Cassavetes.
4.Former U.S. president Bill Clinton visited the set of “The Hangover Part II” in Bangkok, Thailand but refused to film a cameo.
5.When filming the scene where Stu discovers the tattoo on his face, Bradley Coopergenuinely broke into laughter and the director Todd Phillips decided to keep that take in the film.
6.Mike Tyson is said to have taken singing lessons for his role as the singer for Stu's wedding, performing an off-key rendition of "One Night in Bangkok".
7. Zach Galifianakis made an alternate music video for Kanye West’s song “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” filmed on Zach’s actual farm in North Carolina. The song is featured in “The Hangover” soundtrack.
8.Ed Helms (Stu) was severely sick from food poisoning when dancing in the street with no shirt on. After each take Helms would curl into a fetal position and crying like a baby until it was time to film again. Due to the physicality of his role, Ed Helms lost a reported 8lbs in weight.
9.Jack Black turned down the role of Alan Garner and Jonah Hill, Jake Gyllenhaal andThomas Haden Church were considered for the role before it was substantially rewritten during development.
10.Ken Jeong improvised the nudity in the scene where he jumps out naked from the trunk. Originally his character was meant to have clothes on, but Ken suggested that his character be naked instead. Later, director Todd Phillips gave Ken a nudity waiver slip to sign in case Ken changed his mind on the nude scene.

The third Hangover is here whether you’ve been drinking or not. First it came as a poster, then the trailer knocked you off your feet and now the TV spot comes to step on you with mister Chow’s parachute poster.
The Hangover 3 movie trailer has just been released (see full story here) and it’s already starting some waves. It looks like PETA is pretty concerned about the slapstick giraffe decapitation, especially considering The Hangover movies aren't at their first strike when it comes to animals’ rights.
The official trailer, which dropped Thursday, features the boys out of Thailand — the setting for the second movie — and returning to their original stomping grounds in Vegas. This time, it’s a bit different. The only scene that looks just like the first to movies is the classic stop in the middle of nowhere.
The Legendary Pictures comedy “Hangover” is coming to an end. At least that’s what they say. The sequel to 2011’s "Hangover Part II" comes in a new formula entitled how else than “Hangover Part III: Memorial Day” but, this time it says “the epic finale to The Hangover trilogy. It all ends”. If it looks a little familiar, that's because it's a take on the poster from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.”
