Warner Bros. has released the teaser trailer for The Hangover Part II. Rather than highlight a joke or two, the teaser makes the odd decision to highlight all of the critical acclaim for The Hangover. It’s not necessarily a bad decision, but I would have liked to see at least one joke beyond “Hey, look! A monkey wearing clothes!” It’s probably just best to think of this as an announcement trailer and wait until the serious trailer hits in probably about six weeks or so.
Directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover Part II stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike Tyson, Justin Bartha, and Ken Jeong. The film opens May 26th.
