The trailer for what is sure to be on of the bigger movies of the year is here, and it’s kind of a perfect teaser trailer. More of announcement and a promise of things to come than an actual trailer, it makes a few things clear- the important guys are back, the debauchery will be increased, and there will be a small amusing creature. There’s not even a need for a joke, just shove us in and give us glimpse in media res, and America willl fill in the rest with a ticket purchase.
Missing Tooth –> Face Tatoo
Pantsless Zach –> Ironic Dog Shirt Zach
Baby –> Monkey
Fucked Up Vegas Hotel Room –> Disgusting, Seemingly Third-World Hotel Room
It’s everything a teaser to a nearly half-a-billion-worldwide-grossing-comedy has to be, and not a frame more. And frankly, I’m down. The Hangover was an extremely solid comedy that deserved success and received a phenomenon, but if they step it up a deliver as much or more hilariousness, then we’ll have the rare comedy sequel that lives up. Hell, with a more extreme color palette and new location it at least looks like an interesting progression from the last one.
You can check out that roach in High-Res if you wish, over at Apple Trailer (where the monkey is featured heavily). The official synopsis is below (hey Jeffrey Tambor is in it!).
