Zach Galifianakis Rues The Hangover Sequels, Says 2009 Original Should Have Been Left Alone

29 January 2016 9:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Reflecting on The Hangover franchise with the benefit of hindsight, actor Zach Galifianakis has conceded that the two middling sequels that followed the 2009 sleeper hit should never have happened.

At the time, Todd Phillips’ box office smash went on to become the biggest R-rated comedy of all time, pulling in close to $470 million worldwide. Such success naturally gave Phillips and Warner Bros. the impetus to fast-track a sequel, though both it and the derided The Hangover Part III in 2013 served up a classic class of diminishing returns critically and financially. By that point, the Wolfpack had lost their charm.

More News From The Web

History has taught us that comedy sequels are a difficult feat to accomplish in that they often lead to recycling old jokes to little effect – 22 Jump Street is the shining exception to the rule. Five years ago, The Hangover Part II essentially churned out the same »

On this day in pop culture history: Disney’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ premiered

29 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

57 years ago today, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. It was the last film based on a fairy tale that the House of Mouse made for over 30 years, until 1989’s The Little Mermaid, since Sleeping Beauty underperformed at the box office, leading to massive layoffs at Disney. The successful release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961 ended up saving Disney Animation. Though Sleeping Beauty wasn’t a hit at its debut, the film’s become a beloved Disney classic, with Aurora in her pink dress (you win, Flora) prominent among the lineup of Disney princesses, and with Maleficent now an iconic animated villain. Maleficent got her own movie starring Angelina Jolie in 2014. Other notable January 29 happenings in pop culture history: • 1845: Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. • 1942: BBC Radio first aired “Desert Island Discs.” Still on the air today, »

Zach Galifianakis Wishes ‘The Hangover’ Sequels Never Happened, Like Everyone Else

28 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In the summer of 2009, the comedy The Hangover came out of nowhere to become the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time. The film pulled in $467 million worldwide, which is impressive considering the biggest star of the movie at the time was Bradley Cooper, and he wasn’t quite as famous as he is today. And […]

Zach Galifianakis wishes they’d not made The Hangover sequels

28 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Todd PhillipsThe Hangover was one of the biggest comedy successes in recent memory; a runaway success at the box office, it also made stars out of its three leads Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms. Sadly, it was followed by two abysmal sequels, which virtually everyone agrees should never have seen the light of day. Including Zach Galifianakis.

“We’re contracted up to 12, I feel a real appetite out there for more,” joked the star on the Wtf Podcast with Marc Maron. “Look, that was a good chunk of my life that I do not regret at all but I wished we had just done one. I think leave well enough alone sometimes. [However] in 10 years, when this all dries up, I’m sure I’ll be knocking on people’s doors, ‘Hey, I got this idea… look, I’m still weird!’”

Galifianakis Not A Fan Of "Hangover" 2 & 3

27 January 2016 8:27 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though a noted comedian beforehand, it was "The Hangover" films that launched Zach Galifianakis into stardom. This week, out doing promotion for his new FX series "Baskets," the actor spoke fairly bluntly about the series and confirmed pretty much what we all feel - that they should have stopped after the first one.

Speaking with Marc Maron for his Wtf podcast (via Yahoo UK, Galifianakis says: "Look, that was a good chunk of my life that I do not regret at all, but I wished we had just done one. I think leave well enough alone sometimes."

He then went on to joke: "We're contracted up to 12. I feel a real appetite out there for more. I mean, in ten years when all this dries up, I'm sure I'll be knocking on people's doors, 'Hey, I got this idea… look, I'm still weird!'"

How Zach Galifianakis Really Feels About The Hangover Sequels

27 January 2016 3:16 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you.re looking for the archetypal Hollywood trilogy trajectory then The Hangover franchise is perfect. The original comedy is one of the finest examples of mainstream comedy in years. It has an ingenious premise, constantly keeps you hooked by its plotting, and is riotously funny. This momentum immediately ground to halt with the sequel, while the third film was just plain awful. And it turns out that Zach Galifianakis knows that The Hangover Part 2 and The Hangover Part 3 don.t match the quality of the original. In fact, he admitted that he wishes they.d only done one.  Zach Galifianakis, whose career absolutely sky-rocketed because of his performance as Alan in the 2009 original, made this admission during his appearance on Wtf With Marc Maron. Galifianakis is currently doing the rounds to promote his quirky FX comedy, Baskets, but that didn.t stop him talking about his past. Which led »

"I Wished We Had Just Done One": Zach Galifianakis Talks 'The Hangover' Movies

27 January 2016 8:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While "The Hangover" turned Zach Galifianakis from cult comedian to mainstream star overnight, he's always been uncomfortable with the franchise, and keenly aware that the follow-ups didn't exactly live up to expectations. In his "Between Two Ferns" episode with Barack Obama a couple years back, he even let The President take a swing at "The Hangover Part III." And now the actor is coming clean and admitting what we knew all along — there only ever needed to be a single "The Hangover" movie.  “Look, that was a good chunk of my life that I do not regret at all, but I wished we had just done one,” he told Marc Maron on Wtf. “I think leave well enough alone sometimes. “We’re contracted up to 12. I feel a real appetite out there for more," Galifianakis joked. “I mean, in 10 years when all this dries up, I’m sure I’ll »

A Bradley Cooper Doppelganger Is Crashing Sundance Parties

26 January 2016 1:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Sundance Film Festival is in full swing in Park City, Utah, and has attracted scores of celebrities to attend screenings, panel discussions, and plenty of glitzy parties. But one celeb who's not there is still making his presence known, in the form of a head-turning doppelganger.

Both People and Page Six report that a man who looks an awful lot like Bradley Cooper -- who does not have a film playing at the festival, and who is not currently in town -- has been passing himself off as the star to crash several parties at the festival. The shenanigans started this weekend when the doppelganger reportedly started dropping Cooper's name to try to get into some high-profile private bashes.

According to People, it sort of worked, and for two nights in a row this lookalike snuck into some impressive parties -- or tried to, anyway. Here's the lowdown on his M. »

Bradley Cooper's in town - well, er, not really. A look-alike of the actor has been sneaking his way into star-studded parties at the Sundance Film Festival by passing himself off as Cooper, a source tells People. For two nights in a row, the Cooper doppelgänger has used the actor's name to try to get into events, including, the official Morris from America afterparty at Bar 53 at Rock & Reilly's, and 50 Bleu Lounge, the source says. In addition, Page Six reports that the man has been using a picture from Cooper's 2009 film The Hangover as identification and declared, "You're done for! »

A Bradley Cooper Imposter Got Kicked Out of a Party at Sundance Because, Apparently, Looking Like Bradley Cooper Isn’t Enough for Some People

25 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Shoot for the moon! Even if you miss, you look enough like Bradley Cooper to at least try to sneak into a Sundance party. According to "Page Six," a faux Coops sneaked his way into a party for director Elizabeth Wood's drug drama White Girl at Bar 53 at Rock and Reilly's. Apparently, organizers "quickly caught on" that their Bradley Cooper was a cheap knockoff when security confronted him. How did they figure out something like that, you might ask? “He said, ‘You’re done for!’ and would not give ID,” a source claimed. “He pushed a button on an iPhone and had a picture of ‘The Hangover’ as his screensaver.” Wow. He really blew that one. Does this guy know how many people go through life trying to sneak into Sundance parties while not looking at all like Bradley Cooper? Have some respect.  »

Beginning with The Hangover in 2009, Zach Galifianakis has carved out a healthy film and TV career by playing The Hapless Oddball time and again.

In his rookie FX comedy Baskets, which debuted Thursday night, not much about Galifianakis’ formula has changed, except for the fact that he’s now playing two misfits instead of one.

‘Ip Man 3’ Actor Mike Tyson Believes His Fighting Background Gave Him an Edge

21 January 2016 1:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The third installment of the “Ip Man” series premiered Wednesday in Los Angeles at the Pacific Theaters at the Grove. While the movie bowed in Hong Kong over the holidays, both Donnie Yen (Ip Man) and Mike Tyson (Frank) attended the Los Angeles debut of “Ip Man 3,” with much appreciation from fans.

Before the screening, Well Go Svp Jason Pfardrescher led the audience in a classic “Ip Man” chant, complete with a brief Kung Fu move. Both Yen and Tyson introduced the film, eliciting applause from the audience.

“Ip Man 3” follows the iconic character Ip Man — the real-life Wing Chun Kung Fu master who mentored Bruce Lee — as he defends his son’s school when a band of gangsters led by crook Frank attempt to take over the city.

Although “Ip Man 3” has an abundance of Wing Chun Kung Fu, Yen explains he is an actor first, and a martial arts professional second. »

‘Baskets’ Star Zach Galifianakis On How Louis C.K. Convinced Him to Do TV

21 January 2016 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Zach Galifianakis started his career as a cult comedian, until the blockbuster success of “The Hangover” franchise turned him into a mainstream star. Now he’s returning to his roots with the FX original series “Baskets,” an inventive serial comedy sure to be described as “quirky” and “offbeat” more times than anyone will care to count.

Galifianakis created the show with Jonathan Krisel (“Portlandia”) and Louis C.K., and stars as Chip Baskets, a Paris-trained clown who takes a job working at a rodeo in Bakersfield, California. The series co-stars Galifianakis’ longtime friend Martha Kelly, a stand-up comedian making her acting debut as Chip’s sweet-natured foil, and Louie Anderson as Christine Baskets, the mother of Chip and his more successful twin brother Dale. (Of that unconventional casting choice, Galifianakis says, “I wanted to cast Brenda Blethyn; she wasn’t available.”)

Wanda’s Legendary Buy Is Just the Beginning of China’s Investment in Hollywood

13 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The arrival of Chinese investment in Hollywood has been like a blockbuster film — full of economic force, exceeded only by its hype.

With Wanda Group’s deal last week to acquire Thomas Tull’s Legendary Pictures, though, the long-anticipated, loudly heralded arrival of China as a central entertainment player on American soil may finally be coming to full flower.

The transaction, for about $3.5 billion, gives the Chinese conglomerate control of the production and financing operation behind Hollywood blockbusters such as “300,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Hangover” films. More importantly, it is the most obvious bow by a U.S. content generator to the power of Chinese capital and the tractor-beam allure of the fast-expanding Chinese market.

And more such hookups may be on the way. One well-placed financier said that one or more significant Chinese investments in entertainment outfits could close before Feb. 8, the Chinese New Year. The money man, »

Film Review: ‘Ride Along 2’

13 January 2016 7:40 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

About halfway through the sequel to Universal’s 2014 hit “Ride Along,” there comes a moment when Kevin Hart must sift through a trashcan and take a bite of some discarded nachos, though not before reaching in and picking out a large clump of hair. Like many of the gags on display here — say, Ken Jeong indulging in cyber-foreplay with a girl dressed as a giant mouse, or Ice Cube’s car blowing up — the scene serves no particular narrative purpose. But it does supply a fairly spot-on metaphor: Hart is the audience, the trashcan is the month of January, and the tray of refried slop and congealed cheese being ingested is “Ride Along 2,” another tired, witless and potentially lucrative attempt to spin an exhausted buddy-cop template into action-comedy gold. If you’re wondering what the hair represents, you’re already giving the movie more thought than anyone else has. »

I can honestly say I wasn't expecting this press release.  In fact, when I got it late last night, I had to sit on it for a little bit just to make sure I wasn't mis-reading something.  It's real, and Legendary Entertainment is now in the hands of Dalian Wanda, making this one of the biggest film industry acquisitions between countries.  

Dalian Wanda Group Co., Ltd. (“Wanda Group”) today announced the execution of a definitive Merger Agreement with Us Legendary Entertainment (“Legendary”) at a signing ceremony in Beijing.
