'Hangover 3': New logo proves the threequel is happening

hangover-3-logo

The Hangover Part II grossed more than $500 million worldwide, an impressive feat for a movie that basically took the screenplay for Hangover Part I and added “…but this time in Bangkok” to the end of every sentence. A third Hangover film will arrive next May, and Legendary Pictures has released the first promotional image for the threequel on the franchise’s Facebook page. The image doesn’t reveal anything about the plot — although we already know that at some point the characters will return to Las Vegas. (That corresponds perfectly to the Joseph Campbell Monomyth Rule of Trilogies: See also, Luke Skywalker returning to Tatooine in Return of the Jedi and Bruce Wayne returning to deep holes in the ground in The Dark Knight Rises.) Check out the image in a larger size below.
