Methinks Another “Vegas Classic” is Nigh

Two things I love in this world are Las Vegas and clever marketing campaigns. So imagine my excitement when I saw the new posters for The Hangover, a buddy comedy set in Sin City.  Director Todd Phillips (the man behind one of my all-time favorite movies, Old School) brings us this tale of groomsmen out on the town for their buddy's bachelor party… and, of course, their weekend does not go as planned.  Yeah, I know, it's not the most
original story line in the world, but the ads and the trailer below show great potential.

Here's the first poster, which features the unlucky trio of Zach Galifianakis (Into the Wild),
Bradley Cooper (Yes Man) and Ed Helms (The Office).

And here's the trailer:

Granted, I didn't really need anything else to convince me that I absolutely need to catch this movie after it premieres June 5th, but you all know that I'm a sucker for tag team posters, and so the three spots below totally sealed the deal.

Each spotlights one of the hapless fellas.  The taglines are what really got me…

I love it!

Something tells me that The Hangover is well positioned to steal one of the spots in my Top Five Vegas Movies list.  Watch your back, Go
