Need a feel-good story to break up the flood of horrifying tornado news? This should do the trick: Zach Galifianakis’s date to yesterday’s premiere of The Hangover Part III was Elizabeth “Mimi” Haist, a formerly homeless octogenarian whom the comedian has been helping to support for the past two years.
Galifianakis first met 87-year-old Haist nearly 20 years ago — long before he was famous. According to the Daily News, she worked at his local laundromat, and over time, the two struck up a friendship. After the massive success of The Hangover in 2009, Galifianakis stopped going to the laundromat — “Maybe »

The Hangover and The Hangover Part II both pushed the boundaries of raunchy comedy, and they are officially the two highest-grossing R-rated comedies of all time. With the third and final installment being released in theaters this week, we're anticipating another box office smash full of strippers, unintentional drug use, and full-frontal nudity. Since this will likely by a historic week in terms of male nudity at the movies, it seemed like the perfect time to analyze and rate the comedies that make the best use of actors' bits and pieces on the big screen. So we bring you: GrrlzChannel 3: Full-Frontal Funny.
Check out all the funny, full-frontal action >>

When Todd Phillips' The Hangover hit theaters in 2009, no one was anticipating that a modestly-budgeted, R-rated comedy would wind up with a worldwide gross of more than $467 million. Two years later, The Hangover Part II did even better, grossing $586 million with Phillips promising, even before the sequel was released , that the franchise would be wrapped up with a third and final Wolf Pack adventure. This week, it all ends as The Hangover Part III reunites Phillips with leading men Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis (along with quite a few other returning cast members from both previous films). ComingSoon.net sat down with Phillips in the place where it all began -- Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino -- to discuss the end of the series, what has »
When Zach Galifianakis walks the red carpet at Monday's (May 20) premiere for "The Hangover Part III,", he'll have an old friend on his arm. Elizabeth "Mimi" Haist has known the comedian and actor for nearly 20 years, after they met in a laundromat she volunteered at, working for tips..
Zach first met 87-year-old Elizabeth at the laundromat in 1994, though he stopped using the facilities after the success of the first "Hangover." However, when he learned two years ago that Haist had become homeless, he immediately found her a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment, and has paid the rent and utilities since.
Now Zach takes her with him to premieres when he's in the Los Angeles area. Haist spoke with the New York Daily News about going to the events, saying, "I dress up nice and a friend helps me with my makeup. It's fun, not something I've ever dreamed I'd experience. »
If you're as excited to see "The Bling Ring" as we are, you know what to expect in Sofia Coppola's latest film: lots and lots of decadent designer clothing. The film depicts sticky-fingered teens who paw their way through the high-end closets of celebs like Paris Hilton and Megan Fox.
Those luxury brands aren't exactly depicted in the most positive light, piled garishly high in the homes of Hollywood's A-list and snatched up in acts of teenage thievery. And yet Coppola told Women's Wear Daily that Louis Vuitton and Chanel gave full consent to be depicted in the film:
“I think it’s not the ideal way they want to be portrayed. Louis Vuitton is this brand based on heritage and great craftsmanship, and that wasn’t the side that we were celebrating.”
So why would Vuitton be so eager to be featured? It's worth noting that the director »

Warning: Spoilers about "Star Trek Into Darkness" lie ahead.
Looks like the phasers were set to stun after all: despite the added benefit of 3-D surcharges, "Star Trek Into Darkness" opened with $84 million over its first four days of release, just $9 million more than its 2009 predecessor managed in just three days. (Over three days, "Star Trek Into Darkness" made $5 million less than "Star Trek.") That's a far cry from the $100 million opening Paramount had targeted for "Into Darkness" following its $13.5 million opening day on Thursday. While it's doubtful there are too many tears being shed on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise -- "Star Trek Into Darkness" added $80 million overseas, already putting it on track to top the $127 million "Star Trek" earned internationally in 2009 -- the "Into Darkness" opening was a domestic disappointment. Why did J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated film trip out of the starting gate? Ahead, »

We’ve got less than a week to go before the Wolfpack returns to our screens for one final outing in The Hangover Part III, and I can’t wait for next Thursday to come around.
This is one I’ve been looking forward to for a while now, largely because Todd Phillips and co. have promised that this final instalment in the franchise will be an all-bets-are-off affair, breaking from the formula set by the first two movies.
Following on nicely from the latest TV spot we’ve seen this week now comes a great new red-band trailer, via JoBlo. It starts off by recapping the first two movies, before moving on to give us another awesome look at what we can expect from the upcoming conclusion.

In one week, The Wolf Pack returns to theaters for their final adventure, and now one final red band trailer for The Hangover Part III goes back to the beginning to remind everyone of the chaos that led them to this. Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis are more desperate than ever as they find themselves forced to track down Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) for a ruthless criminal mastermind (John Goodman). The cool thing is there are some familiar faces from the first film thrown in to make this conclusion a nice bookend to this surprise comedy franchise. Will The Wolf Pack survive? Watch below! Here's the final red band trailer for Todd Phillips' The Hangover Part III from Warner Bros.

The end is almost here for The Wolf Pack with the release of The Hangover Part III just over a week away. Recently the film decided to open in theaters everywhere a day early in order to get a head start on the Fast & Furious 6 which hits the same weekend. Now a new featurette has arrived with a bunch of footage and interviews with Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and more as they wrap up the end of this crazy comedy franchise. There's some great new pieces with John Goodman and Ken Jeong. This won't have to do much to be better than The Hangover Part II, but hopefully it goes out with a bang. Watch!

There’s no doubt that May 2013 is one of the greatest months in recent memory to be a fan of blockbuster fare, and The Hangover Part III is a big part of that, standing tall alongside the likes of Iron Man 3, Fast and Furious 6, Star Trek Into Darkness, and The Great Gatsby.
The Wolfpack is reuniting for one final outing together on the big screen, and if what we’ve seen from the film so far is anything to go by, it could well be their greatest outing yet.
With little more than a week to go before the film hits theatres, Warner Bros. have released a great new TV spot, setting the tone brilliantly for the franchise’s conclusion.

We’ve got less than two weeks to go before Todd Phillips’ The Hangover Part III hits studios, and things are looking good for the sequel. Warner Bros. have officially brought forward the film’s Stateside release by a day to May 23rd, matching its release date on our shores, making the wait that little bit shorter across the Atlantic.
Phillips’ comedy blockbuster will bring to a close one of the most successful franchises of all time, and particularly in the comedy genre, and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.
The studio have recently been teasing out new character posters ahead of the film’s release this month, and now the full set of nine has been completed with the release of Zach Galifianakis’ solo poster, reprising his role as the much-loved Alan.

What happens to a group of travelers who are in an underground nightclub in Chile when a massive earthquake hits? Hint: Nothing good!
Well, except that it gave me the opportunity to sit down with Eli Roth to talk about his new movie Aftershock, in which he stars, co-wrote, and produced. I would say that’s a pretty darn good outcome! Check it out below.
In the middle of a night of wild partying, a hapless American tourist (Roth) and his friends are suddenly plunged into a living hell when a powerful earthquake rips through the coastal town of Valparaíso, Chile.
What do you think it is about travel that sets a good tone for a film?
Eli Roth: Well, travel – Everyone has fantasies of traveling. We all want to escape our lives and go somewhere fun. A lot of times we want to go as far away from »

It’s been two years. Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), he’d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie’d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok.
The only member of the Wolfpack who’s not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses in a big way—which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment—until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs. »

Even if The Hangover Part II left you with a bad taste in your mouth, there's still a draw for the third movie, which comes out later this month. No. 1 on our list of reasons to see The Hangover Part III? Bradley Cooper. The sexy actor is reprising his role as Phil, the member of the wolfpack who rocks a pair of aviators like you wouldn't believe. Just in case you need a reminder of how much hotness Cooper brings to the Hangover movies, we have you covered with 20 photos of him scorching the screen in The Hangover Part III. View Slideshow › »

Here's a couple of new posters for you to check out this morning. One is the newest character sheet for The Hangover Part III and the other is the debut poster for Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. First up, here's the latest poster for The Hangover Part III that has Bradley Cooper with a quote about having an idea that someone isn't going to like. Yeah, well I remember an idea I didn't like once and it was called The Hangover Part II. The newest poster is »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released two brand new posters for The Hangover Part III, and this time it’s all about smart-ass Bradley Cooper and regretful Ed Helms. In other words, Phil apparently has an idea, and we’re not gonna like it, while Stu (as usual) says: I told myself I would not come back. Well guys, all bets are off, and this summer – it all ends, take a look! Todd Phillips‘ sequel to 2011′s The Hangover Part II, and the third and final film in The Hangover film series is set to hit theaters on May 24th, 2013. Beside Cooper and Helms, it also...

The box office showdown between The Hangover Part III and Fast & Furious 6 has been altered slightly. While many were wondering if either Warner Bros. or Universal would move off the May 24th release date to prevent a split opening weekend between two major franchises, it appears that WB has blinked—but just barely. The studio has moved up the release of director Todd Phillips’ trilogy-closer one day, to May 23rd, giving The Hangover Part III a day in theaters alone before Justin Lin’s Fast & Furious 6 swoops in. If we compare the opening weekends of the film franchise’s two previous installments, Fast Five just barely has the edge with $86 million vs. The Hangover Part II’s $85 million. However, the last Hangover film suffered mixed reviews and a tepid response from audiences, while Fast Five was greeted with open arms, going on to rake in over $600 million worldwide. It would »
